Fox News anchor Eric Bolling defended Donald Trump on Tuesday against widespread media criticism of his unproven claim that thousands of New Jersey Muslims cheered as the World Trade Centers came down on 9/11.
“So I remember this day, and I stood on the New York side and I watched the plane fly into the tower,” Bolling began during a conversation on “The Five.”
“I remember specifically the news reports about Jersey City. They said people were on the roofs watching the planes fly in,” he continued.
He then said he couldn’t recall whether he saw video of Muslims cheering from New Jersey or across the globe.
“I remember video, I don’t remember if it was Pakistan or Paterson [New Jersey]. But there was also a lot of talk,” Fox News’ Eric Bolling said, at a round table discussion, on Monday.
Bolling concluded that it doesn’t matter whether it was thousands cheering or a handful. “Who cares?”
