Today commemorates the 19th anniversary of 9/11 in the United States. As has become tradition, the President led ceremonies by hosting a morning service in Shanksville, Pennsylvania – the crash site of United flight 93. While the ceremony went without any major gaffes – a critical success for a president who has described deceased American soldiers as “suckers” and “losers” – the President seemed in a pensive mood as a potent thought racked his mind: “Maybe I can finally put my name on the twin towers.”

Though he didn’t share this revelation with any of his advisors, a transcript of text messages sent between Donald Trump Jr. and an unknown number seemed to expand on these thoughts.


Unknown: Twin Towers. Update?

Trump Jr.: What?

Unknown: Can we get the Trump name up there?

Trump Jr.: How?

Unknown: The Trump Twin Towers.

Trump Jr.: They don’t exist anymore.

Unknown: What does Jared think?

Trump Jr.: He thinks it was the number of the plane.
