Trump claims he did not know the reporter personally and was using a generic rebuttal when he did his gyration. However the counterclaim is that that reporter had been assigned to Trump in the past. However, Trump was probably steamed because this was the reporter who apparently claimed he saw or heard some type of celebrating going on after 911 but does not now remember, or he never saw it but should have, or some other combination.
