Former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer was by former President George W. Bush’s side as the horrifying events of Sept. 11 unfolded. Every year since 2014, Fleischer has tweeted a minute-by-minute account of his and the president’s steps on the day the American homeland suffered its deadliest assault since Pearl Harbor.
