President Donald Trump commemorated the 18th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks by speaking at a yearly ceremony at the Pentagon, one of the sites of the attacks.

During the speech, he once again claimed that he assembled a team of men and went with them to aid in recovery efforts immediately after the attacks.

There are no pictures or witnesses who saw Trump do this or at Ground Zero working. No one has ever been able to prove this claim.

Watch below.

Trump said:

"Soon after, I went down to Ground Zero with men who worked for me to try to help in any little way that we could. We were not alone. So many others were scattered around trying to do the same. They were all trying to help."

Two days after the attacks, Trump gave interviews blocks away from Ground Zero where he claimed to have assembled 100 men, with another 125 on the way.

However, not a single one of those workers have come forward and no witnesses have corroborated Trump's claim that he assembled 225 men in total to help at the site of the attacks.

Retired New York Fire Chief Richard Alles told The New York Times:

"I spent many months there myself, and I never witnessed him. He was a private citizen at the time. I don't know what kind of role he could have possibly played."

Given that Trump has lied numerous times about receiving made up awards, people had every reason to be skeptical.

On the day of the attacks, Trump did brag about now having the tallest building in Manhattan.

He also pursued a Camp David meeting with the Taliban, who harbored Osama bin Laden after the attacks, to take place this week.

Some jobs will just give you night terrors forever!

TW: There are a lot of horrible crimes disclosed here. Violent.

Prison is a horrifying place. It is brimming with society's worse. And the people who work and patrol those prisons are living in fear on the daily. Now not everyone is pure evil but plenty are, and those who keep us safe from these people lay their loves down, probably with not enough pay. Imagine spending day in and day out with murderers and lunatics? No thanks.

Hold my beer!

We all know Murphy's Law is real. And never, NEVER say... "So what next?" That is just calling on the spirits of evil to mess with you. Life is a struggle and sadly some moments are met with sorrow then met with hardship and then misery. It's a wonder we all get out alive..... Oh. Wait.

Warning: This is adult subject matter. Escorting is an arduous job. And it is a job. Maybe not one we'd all love to do but it's work none the less, especially when you have to mess with someone you may not find the most "aesthetically appealing." The workers in the trade have an endless well of stories to tell us. And you know we're dying to hear. Our questions on this topic are bottomless.
