For D-Day, Trump recalls the heroism of ... Donald Trump

Dana Milbank on

WASHINGTON -- World leaders have assembled on the English Channel this week, on the 75th anniversary of D-Day, for two days of ceremonies recalling the unrivaled bravery and sacrifice of Donald Trump.

President Trump, staying at the U.S. ambassador's residence in London, was up early Wednesday morning and already thinking deep and profound thoughts on the theme of the day: himself.

"Washed up psycho @BetteMidler was forced to apologize for a statement she attributed to me that turned out to be totally fabricated by her in order to make 'your great president' look really bad," he tweeted.

It was 1:30 a.m.

D-Day is often referred to as "The Longest Day," but Trump's Wednesday had to be a close second. As the world's focus turned to the legendary World War II battle, Trump's attention remained fixed on the commemoration of Trump. In this great and noble undertaking, he had the support of Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, who said the D-Day anniversary "is the time where we should be celebrating our president."

The morning tweeting continued.


"This trip has been an incredible success for the President," he declared, quoting Fox News' Laura Ingraham.

"If the totally Corrupt Media was less corrupt, I would be up by 15 points in the polls based on our tremendous success with the economy, maybe Best Ever!" he wrote.

He tweeted a White House-produced video, set to triumphant music, showing images of -- you guessed it -- Trump, in Britain.

If any event symbolizes a cause greater than self, it is D-Day, when thousands stormed the beaches of Normandy under Nazi fire. But for Trump, no cause exceeds self. At a time for lofty sentiment, Trump defaulted to the small -- about the "No Collusion Witch Hunt," "Sleepy Joe Biden," the "Corrupt Media" and "Cryin' Chuck Schumer" ("What a Creep").
