(Jul. 26, 2016) — Lauren Manning, who was working for Cantor Fitzgerald at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, told the DNC audience that she struggled to survive after sustaining burns over 83% of her body following the terrorist attacks that day.

Manning had a ten-month-old son at the time and lost many friends in the wreckage of the World Trade Center.  Cantor Fitzgerald lost the most people of any firm affected that day by 19 Islamic terrorists in a plot devised by Osama bin Laden in faraway Afghanistan.

Manning said that Hillary Clinton visited her in her hospital room and kept in touch as she progressed through her rehabilitation.  She described Clinton as a leader who successfully advocated strongly for New York after that devastating day.

Clinton was credited by speakers before and after Manning for introducing a bill, which was eventually passed, to extend health care benefits to first-responders and others affected by air polluted by the destruction of the World Trade Center.

  1. Anyone else besides me believe that if Lauren Manning knew that Hillary Clinton’s husband, William Clinton, was responsible for not preventing 9-11-01 from happening in the first place she, Lauren Manning, would probably have quite a different opinion of Hillary Clinton?
