9/11 was a national tragedy, those politicizing it for lazy political points are spitting on the graves of the dead

If you can’t let 9/11 pass without taking potshots at your enemies in American politics, take the day off (I said the same about those ripping McCain during his memorial).

The old adage from President Barack Obama’s Chief of Staff Rham Emanuel that you should “never let a good crisis go to waste” apparently doesn’t have an expiration date when it comes to a national tragedy like 9/11.

Today should have been a commemoration of those who lost their lives that day in New York City, Washington D.C. and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. But the enemies of America’s current president were not going to let today pass without using this event to beat him up and say outrageous things.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough thought today would be a good day to mention that the president would do more damage to the country than “any foreign adversary,” adding “Trump is damaging the dream of America more than any terrorist attack ever could.”

CNN’s Chris Cillizza is mad about the president watching TV.

Journalist Chris Riotta complained about how the president greeted supporters.

And CQ Roll Call’s Robert Matson posted a political cartoon that is probably the dumbest thing you’ll see today.

These people have lost their minds.

Some perspective:

9/11’s actual costs are real and they shouldn’t be some flippant vehicle to attack your political enemies.
