Either an overexcited reporter trying to (badly) describe the scene... or we didnt get the full story about ground zero.

She likes to complain about pee breaks and eating lunch at her desk (but honestly, who doesn't eat at their desk these days), but I think I could 'suffer' those issues for the salary she was on!!!!

He’s just said it loud and made it OK for everyone else to say it out loud. He has made it OK to be a racist. He has given people a platform to stand on and be bigots and be racists and be sexists and be xenophobic. He has set us back so many years in terms of civil rights.”

Only if it was "nanothermite" built into the walls during the original construction in the 1970s.

No, the thermite was brought in by Fuji Bank and installed in the summer of 2001 on the reinforced 81st floor of the South Tower, disguised as uninterruptable power supply batteries, which were never turned on.

There were also missiles containing depleted uranium fired at the towers, possibly fired from the planes.

Short version of this article....

Person came to the US legally, overstayed visa, stole someone's identity so she could go to college and get a job on wall street, always afraid of getting caught being in the US illegally, married a US citizen for love, got a green card, fell out of love and divorced US citizen, became a US citizen, don't vote for Trump.

Nope but I have plenty of tin foil. Put it on the walls of your office for guaranteed protection* - Tell your friends!
