There isn’t an ethnic group, gender, animal, reptile, or mammal on earth that Trump hasn’t made a terribly offensive remark about. But Trump seems to have a particular knack for offending the men and women in uniform.
Veterans have called out Trump on his failure to send them the $6 million he cynically promised them. Not that Trump seemed to care. After all, Trump has made a mint by not being held accountable for things he says and you’re an ugly loser for asking. Worse still, he easily found the time to help pay off the campaign debts of his new best buddy Chris Christie. He was also righteously blasted by VoteVets chairman Jon Soltz.
But if our uniformed men and women thought that Trump was laughingstock before and deserving of their ridicule, he just upped the ante.
We’re told that a picture is worth a thousand words. If so, the one just posted by Trump for D-Day speaks volumes on how miserably uninformed he is with regards to history. Looking to win back the love of veterans, Trump tweeted about how June 6 marks the 72nd anniversary of D-Day. Trump tweeted out a photo with “D-Day 1944″ at the top, saying, “Remembering the fallen heroes on #DDay – June 6, 1944.”
Oh Donald! There’s just one tiny, insignificant problem wit that image: it’s not from D-Day.
The photo Trump tweeted is from a 1943 training mission. According to Mediaite, you can see a man in the foreground with his hands on his hips overlooking the scene. The scene depicted in Trump’s tweet is far too calm for the reality of what the Allies faced on the beaches of Normandy.
But we don’t expect his wily and ever-so-knowledgeable supporters to know (or care) about the derpy error.
