The View Uses D-Day as Platform to Attack Trump

On a day meant to honor the soldiers who fought on D-Day, the woke ladies of The View used it as an opportunity to yet again attack Trump.

On the 80th anniversary of D-Day, instead of pausing to honor the valor and sacrifices that changed the course of World War II, The View co-host Joy Behar decided to politicize the memory, comparing the return of Donald Trump to the freedoms at risk during the rise of Adolf Hitler. This was a day meant to commemorate the brave souls who stormed the beaches of Normandy to save the world from tyranny, yet it was twisted into another opportunity to attack Trump.

The discussion about D-Day quickly took a nosedive when Behar injected her narrative, first romanticizing a past conversation where she claimed a French guide had praised Americans for saving the world. This could have been a moment to unify or educate. Instead, Behar pivoted sharply, equating the re-election of Trump to discarding the very freedoms those soldiers fought and died to protect.

Sunny Hostin attempted to correct Behar when she mischaracterized Trump as a “convicted felon” liable for rape, pointing out he was accused of sexual abuse instead—though Behar brushed past the correction, unfazed, continuing her tirade. She even resurrected the claim that Trump called American servicemen “suckers and losers,” a story which has never been able to be verified as true.

The tragic irony here is that Behar, under the guise of honoring D-Day, chose to propagate a dangerous divisiveness that is tearing our country apart. Instead of celebrating unity and the shared values that define America, they showcased a stark vision of America’s future clouded by partisan disdain.

This misuse of a platform on such a day reflects a broader issue within segments of the mainstream media and political elite who appear to prioritize ideological battles over historical integrity. It is one thing to oppose a political figure; it is quite another to dishonor a solemn anniversary by likening it to contemporary political disagreements.

As we reflect on the sacrifices of D-Day, it’s crucial to remember what those brave men fought for: not just to defeat a dictator, but to preserve a way of life based on freedom, respect, and dignity for all. Let’s not allow the memory of their sacrifice to be marred by the kind of rhetoric they fought to eradicate. This isn’t just about remembering history—it’s about learning from it.
