Hillary Clinton mocked for comparing D-Day to 2024 Election Day.

 June 7, 2024

Hillary Clinton found herself in the midst of a firestorm after the Trump campaign put an end to some of her more salacious comments comparing the victor of the 2016 election to a historical villain.

The former first lady commemorated the 80th anniversary of the D-Day operation with a social media post that appeared to compare former President Trump to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler in terms of his threat to democracy, as Fox News reported.

On Thursday, Clinton suggested in an X post that the upcoming presidential election is a test of democracy, as the presumptive Republican nominee, former President Trump, is confronting the incumbent, President Biden, a Democrat.

Hillary's Comments

"Eighty years ago today, thousands of brave Americans fought to protect democracy on the shores of Normandy," Clinton wrote in an X post on Thursday. "This November, all we have to do is vote."

One of the most renowned events in the annals of U.S. military history is the D-Day invasion of Normandy, France, which occurred on June 6, 1944.

It was a pivotal moment in World War II and the commencement of the liberation of Europe from Nazi Germany's dominion by American and Allied forces.

Implications For Trump

The implication from the failed 2016 Democratic nominee is that her former rival, Trump, is a threat to democracy in a manner similar to Hitler's Third Reich, which pursued world domination through conquest.

Despite Clinton's efforts to restrict responses by prohibiting responses from individuals she does not follow, the comparison elicited a public outcry. The post was cited by Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) in his response, as The Washington Examiner reported.

“These Dems couldn’t be more dramatic and deranged. They’re comparing storming the beaches of Normandy on #dday to voting against Trump,” Tuberville wrote.

“How disrespectful to our WWII heroes who faced unimaginable fear with immense courage 80 years ago today,” Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) wrote.

More Lawmakers' Comments

“Shameless and deranged,” Rep. Pat Fallon (R-TX) wrote.

“In 2016 you attempted to undo everything they fought for by partnering with Fusion GPS to launder discredited oppo[sition] in the press, and merchandise it into surveillance warrants on enemies through FISA,” conservative commentator Dana Loesch wrote. “Were my WWII vet grandparents alive today they’d slam this.”

“Can’t imagine why she’d turn the comments off on this disgusting piece of drivel,” communications director for Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) Bryan Griffin wrote.

Donald Trump, who is currently campaigning against incumbent President Joe Biden, defeated Clinton in her 2016 presidential candidacy. Trump is the presumptive Republican presidential candidate in anticipation of the party's national convention on July 15. November 5th is the date of the election.
