Trump Slammed For D-Day 80th Anniversary Social Media Post After Calling Vets ‘Suckers’ And ‘Losers’

Convicted felon/former president Donald Trump thought he’d comment on the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landing, but his remarks wound up falling flat and leading to reminders that he allegedly called those who gave their lives for the United States in battle “suckers” and “losers.”

On his financially-strapped Truth Social site, the disgraced ex-head of state wrote, “The men of D-Day will live forever in history as among the bravest, noblest, and greatest Americans ever to walk the earth. They shed their blood, and thousands gave their lives, in defense of American Freedom. They are in our hearts today and for all time.”

That didn’t sit well with many. After all, according to a 2020 report from Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic:

When President Donald Trump canceled a visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery, near Paris, in 2018, he blamed rain for the last-minute decision, saying that “the helicopter couldn’t fly” and that the Secret Service wouldn’t drive him there. Neither claim was true.

Trump rejected the idea of the visit because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain, and because he did not believe it important to honor American war dead, according to four people with firsthand knowledge of the discussion that day. In a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit, Trump said, “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.” In a separate conversation on the same trip, Trump referred to the more than 1,800 marines who lost their lives at Belleau Wood as “suckers” for getting killed.

The twice-impeached and multiply-indicted ex-president was blasted with derision on Twitter.

WATCH: CNN’s Brianna Keilar Brutally Fact-Checks GOPer For Lying About Attacks On US Forces

Rep. Mike Waltz (R-FL) got schooled by CNN host Brianna Keilar during a discussion of the Biden administration’s Middle East policy Monday on the network after the congressman suggested the administration was responsible for attacks on U.S. forces by proxy groups loyal to Iran.

Keilar noted that the Trump administration also struggled to control Iran.

“I know you’re critical of President Biden, that you think he is emboldening Iran, but how should the U.S. respond when even former President Trump — I mean, you said that peace broke out [under his watch], but his direct and controversial action like taking out [late Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani] did not stop the deadly attacks on U.S. troops.”

Waltz said that killing Soleimani had been effective, “They launched some missiles and that was it!”

Keilar, whose husband is an active duty Green Beret, interjected, “Service members died!”

Waltz: “Who died, post-Soleimani strike?”

That’s when Keilar fact-checked the congressman.

“March 2020, service members died,” she said. “You had Iranian-backed proxies… the one in March was determined that it likely was [Iran] and you had service members, two Americans and one Brit, who were killed… So if we’re talking realistically on what deters and what does not deter the proxies, then let’s use those facts to talk about what might actually be a way to… get them to stop.”

Outgoing Joint Chiefs Chairman Throws Shade At Trump During Retirement Ceremony

Gen. Mark Milley, the outgoing Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, threw some shade at failed one-term, twice-impeached, and four-time indicted ex-president Donald Trump during a speech at his retirement ceremony today.

Milley — who Trump recently suggested deserved the death penalty for daring to disagree with him — told those gathered for his retirement from the highest military position in the government that every member of the military takes a solemn oath to the Constitution, not to a person or even a president.

“We don’t take an oath to a king or a queen, or to a tyrant or a dictator — and we don’t take an oath to a wannabe dictator,” Milley said, clearly referring to Trump’s attempt to remain in power despite having lost the 2020 election to President Joe Biden. “We don’t take our oath to an individual. We take an oath to the Constitution, and we take an oath to the idea that is America, and we’re willing to die to protect it.”

Milley revealed earlier this week that after Trump made his death threat, he was forced to get additional security for his family, telling Norah O’Donnell of CBS News, “I wish those comments had not been made, but they were. We will take appropriate measures to ensure my safety and the safety of my family.”

Gen. Milley is a American hero and a patriot who deserves this nation’s respect and thanks.

Donald Trump, on the other hand, is a coward, a traitor, and deserves to spend the rest of his life behind bars.

Trump Says Retiring Joint Chiefs Chairman Mark Milley Deserves ‘DEATH!’ For Disagreeing With Him

Proving for the millionth time that he’s completely unfit for office and deserving of a long prison term, failed one-term, twice-impeached, and four-times indicted former president Donald Trump angrily lashed out at Gen. Mark Milley, who is retiring as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff next week.

Clearly triggered by a report from the Atlantic that revealed Milley and other top U.S. military officials had to try and restrain Trump from making monumental mistakes in both domestic and foreign policy, the disgraced ex-president suggested on his Truth Social site that Milley was deserving of death for daring to disagree with him.

“Mark Milley, who led perhaps the most embarrassing moment in American history with his grossly incompetent implementation of the withdrawal from Afghanistan, costing many lives, leaving behind hundreds of American citizens, and handing over BILLIONS of dollars of the finest military equipment ever made, will be leaving the military next week. This will be a time for all citizens of the USA to celebrate!”

He then added:

“This guy turned out to be a Woke train wreck who, if the Fake News reporting is correct, was actually dealing with China to give them a heads up on the thinking of the President of the United States. This is an act so egregious that, in times gone by, the punishment would have been DEATH! A war between China and the United States could have been the result of this treasonous act. To be continued!!!”

If Trump happens to win the 2024 election, expect him to turn this country into a police state reminiscent of Nazi Germany. He has no respect for any of the institutions that keep this nation safe, secure, and free.

Donald Trump belongs in prison for the rest of his life. It’s really that simple.

Twitter Erupts With Mockery After Kevin McCarthy Declares ‘We Don’t Want Disneyland To Train Our Military’

Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) says he has an important message he wants to share with the American people: He will never allow the United States military to be trained by Disneyland.

You may now laugh and shake your head, because that’s exactly what Kevin deserves.

The House speaker made that very ― sorry, can’t help it ― goofy promise Friday after the chamber passed the 2024 National Defense Authorization Act, which raises pay for service members by 5.2% while also blocking abortion coverage, Pentagon diversity initiatives and transgender health care. After the Senate passes its own version of the bill, a compromise will have to be reached on the final legislation, HuffPost reports.

“We don’t want Disneyland to train our military,” the California Republican said, touting the bill’s passage in the House. He added on Twitter that the legislation “ENDS the wokism in the military.”

Other than McCarthy’s ludicrous comments, be sure and note when you watch the video the reaction of the two fellow Republican House members standing on either side of the Speaker. They look like they’re about to fall asleep or start laughing uncontrollably.

Fortunately, one thing did come out of the ridiculous legislation and McCarthy’s remarks: The hilarious mockery he received on Twitter.
