Trump Has Slip of Tongue Discussing 9/11 at New York Rally

Donald Trump made an unfortunate slip of the tongue while campaigning in Buffalo, NY, at his final campaign rally before Tuesday's big-prize primary, reports the Associated Press.

He was about to deliver prepared remarks lauding New York values when he mistakenly mentioned the name of a popular convenience store chain in place of 9/11.

"It's very close to my heart because I was down there, and I watched our police and our firemen down at 7-Eleven, down at the World Trade Center right after it came down, and I saw the greatest people I've ever seen in action," Trump told the crowd of thousands packed into the city's hockey arena.

While few in the room appeared to notice the flub, Trump's comments quickly drew attention on social media, where some panned him for the confusion.

He made a mistake. I wish every one would leave him alone. Do you really want Hillary.

A slip of the tongue, what's the big deal??? We all know what he was really saying.

GP Cobb @ 4/19/2016 10:21 PM

I concur with Bob and the Sgt on this one. Wished they'd git off his A$$.

BFD! Onama doesn't ven know how many states there are, his own birthday or wedding anniversary, or whether he is Muslim ( you mean Christian)....interviewer asking.....Obama says, " Huh, oh ya, ya, Christian ". When word got out that the demorats were HIRING professional protesyers and inciters, Trump said, " I'm not even President yet and already I'm creating jobs! ". ...........true story.....Lol. And I am a woman and I could NOT care less if he hates women. Just fix the economy, stereo type Muslims, and build the damn wall already. I think Trumps the one to " Git er done "
