Donald Trump, orange-tufted sentient troll doll, is just going to “play cool” until we all get over his big fat lie about 9/11.

The Republican presidential frontrunner appeared Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” to dredge back up his widely-debunked claim that Muslims cheered from New Jersey as the Twin Towers fell on Sept. 11, 2001.

“I saw it. So many people saw it ... So, why would I take it back? I’m not going to take it back.”

Earlier in the program, host Chuck Todd chided Trump, suggesting he focus a little more on truth-telling and a little less on racism.

“You’re running for president of the United States. Your words matter. Truthfulness matters.

To which Donald Trump, a man who is currently leading in the Republican polls, responded, “Take it easy, Chuck. Just play cool.”
