no it's not. 10 people recollecting the same 12 people does not equal 120.

we already have another thread on this. there were small pockets of douche-rockets celebrating ( including 5 isrealis ). there were not the "thousands and thousands" that trump claimed was televised. trump b*ll-****ted and continues to do so.

what most of those claims lack is any evidence that can be confirmed, like an exact location.

Trump claimed "thousands" celebrated in the streets. This is simply not true. It's an extremely embellished story. It's safe to say there were pockets of some Muslims all around the country and certainly larger populations around the world who celebrated. NJ is a very diverse state, especially around Hudson County, with a good number of Muslims. Some celebrated in small groups here and there in some of NJ's cities. They also were seen celebrating in Brooklyn and even reports of celebrations in Manhattan.

Trump lied when he said thousands. He was exaggerating to try to make a point. And as a NJ resident, that is insulting to me. NJ was deeply affected by 9/11. We lost over 700 residents. "Thousands" of people were not celebrating, especially not right across the river. Thousands of people however were hurt and confused and traumatized and trying to come home from work and trying to contact family and dealing with grief. He needs to back down and say "okay, not thousands in the streets in Jersey City but yes pockets here and there all over the country." But he will never do this.

he sticks by his claim and the official word from his campaign is that it's a conspiracy from the networks and local stations to hide the footage of "thousands and thousands" celebrating that trump claims he saw.

Again - this is insulting to me. And I am not easily offended. I know he's claiming it's thousands of Muslims who were celebrating, and I'm not even a Muslim, I'm a Catholic white, but this insults me as a NJ resident. Maybe it shouldn't, but it does.

This is hilarious. Trump's detractors don't realize that when they quibble over the details while conceding his general point, they are just proving him right. Frankly anyone who's supporting Hillary Clinton, who just may be the most corrupt and dishonest politician in our country today(which is saying a lot) doesn't have much cause to be trying to make a big deal out of the specific details.

Is any crowd size "modest" when celebrating horrible death of 3000 of your neighbors? You seem to think so. Besides, how many people were in the videos showing Palestinians passing candies in the streets? Couldn't have been more than couple of dozens and yet nobody is discounting them.
