On “The View” this morning Rosie explained her newest 9/11 conspiracy theory: since the Bush family has made money off of oil from the Saudis and since Saudis made up most of the 9/11 hijackers, one can only come to the conclusion that the Bushes had some part in 9/11. This stemmed from a discussion about rich politicians such as John Edwards. But don’t worry, the conversation quickly turned into those evil, rich Bushies.
Exit question: Isn’t it funny to see two rich people bashing President Bush for being born into a rich family, which is something he couldn’t help? But in Rosie’s world, that doesn’t matter.
ROSIE O’DONNELL: Where did they make that money?
JOY BEHAR: I’m not sure where they made the money.
O’DONNELL: Oil, yes, deals with the Saudis. 19 of the hijackers were Saudis.
As Justin McCarthy at Newsbusters notes, 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudis, not all 19. When you’re spouting off kooky conspiracy theories, make sure to at least get your facts straight.
But hey, let’s acknowledge a little progress here: Rosie at least believes that hijackers were somehow involved in 9-11. Now let’s get her to lay out how you can have 19 hijackers plus the Bush administration plus Rudy Giuliani and whoever helped him (shipping WTC steel to China before it can be checked for explosives, er, except the pool of molten steel found in the basement of WTC 7, er, and the whole thing about fire not being able to melt steel, er, and the steel that that one guy did test and found thermite on), without anyone coming clean on the whole thing by now.
