Donald Trump D-Day speech

Trump’s Behavior On D-Day Was A National Disgrace

Today is the 75th anniversary of the Allied landings at Normandy, commonly referred to as D-Day. Every year, the world marks the occasion with solemn speeches, honoring veterans living and dead, and general seriousness. Enter Donald Trump.

Trump has a tendency to commit faux-pas on the regular that would have ended in a crucifixion if former President Barack Obama had done it, but this D-Day, the current President took things to a whole new level of disgraceful.

First, he delayed the entire ceremony in Normandy because he suddenly needed to sit down with Laura Ingraham of Fox News.

Remember the tan suit thing? Good times.

So what was so important that Trump needed to delay the entire D-Day ceremony for it? Well, he needed to bash Nancy Pelosi and Robert Mueller, who is, lest we forget, a war veteran.

“Before delivering his speech at the ceremony, Trump lashed out on Fox News at fellow Americans Robert Mueller and Nancy Pelosi, saying the former ‘made a fool out of himself’ and that House Speaker Pelosi ‘is a disaster,’” reports Deadline.

Some have noted that President Emmanuel Macron was also late to the ceremony, but it’s probably safe to say that he wasn’t late because he had to sit down with a news personality and trash a veteran.

This comes a day after Trump upset people with his ill-timed comments about the Vietnam War during his interview with British journalist Piers Morgan.

“Well I was never a fan of that war. I’ll be honest with you. I thought it was a terrible war. I thought it was very far away. Nobody ever — you’re talking about Vietnam at that time and nobody ever heard of the country,” Trump rambled. “Now I wasn’t out in the streets marching. I wasn’t saying, you know, I’m going to move to Canada, which a lot of people did. But no, I was not a fan of that war. That war was not something that we should have been involved in.”

He stopped short of admitting that his alleged bone spurs were a fake excuse to get out of serving, but his comments did not sit well with anyone. Senator Tammy Duckworth, a veteran herself, called Trump a coward in no uncertain terms and trashed him on Twitter.

Senator Duckworth is far from alone in her low opinion of the President right now.
