Embarrassing, even for Trump. But he seems incapable of acknowledging embarrassment for anything he says.

Donald Trump tried to praise the heroes of 9/11 at a Buffalo rally Monday — but botched the compliment by saying cops and firefighters responded on “7-Eleven.”

After an impassioned introduction by former New York Jets coach — and current Buffalo Bills coach — Rex Ryan, the GOP front-runner fumbled his remarks while launching into a defense of New York values.

“It’s very close to my heart,” Trump told the huge rally.

“I watched our police and our firemen down on 7-Eleven, down at the World Trade Center, right after it came down, and I saw the greatest people I’ve ever seen in action.”

The crowd seemed to let Trump slide on his convenience-store reference, but it wasn’t the only gaffe.

He later praised Ryan for winning AFC championships while with the Jets — who won no such titles during his tenure.
