  1. Per TMZ
    Until last week I didn't know about Pete Davidson's dad.

    I didn't battle my way to the summit of Iwo Jima so assholes like this could lie about 9/11.

    I saw this item this morning and it jogged my memory to start dvr'ing the new season of The League. His lying got him one extra viewer.

    He couldn't even be bothered to find a company that actually had offices there to lie about working for? What a lazy fuck.

    That's what I couldn't believe!

    As I was reading the article, I was like "Merrill had offices in the WTC?"

    Merrill's been in midtown for a long time. And, only a couple of big firms lost people, and they were widely reported. His first lie had to be on the spur of the moment, and then he couldn't go back

    Obviously he was talking to entertainment folks, but anyone who spent a minute looking into his claims would have seen them to be obviously false.

    I wonder how much 9-11 "I nearly died" sympathy pussy this guy's picked up over the past 14 years.

    Where did this guy even plant the seed that this would be something he could latch on to?

    “Man you guys, 9-11 was three years ago today…crazy it’s been that long”
    “Steve, weren’t you in New York City the day of the crash? You weren’t near the towers or anything were you?
    Steve: [Lightbulb goes off] Actually…

    This would be a good story for Brian Williams to cover when he comes back, and he is coming back, soon. Too soon.

    I suspect the number of people who claim to have been in or near the WTC on 9/11 has multiplied several times over in the years since. Regardless, it's still an utterly contemptible lie. This asshole deserves every drop of the scorn and retribution he'll get for this.
