Hillary Clinton Faces Backlash For Comparing Trump To Hitler On D-Day Anniversary

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton drew sharp criticism on social media for a bitter and desperate post comparing former President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler on the 80th anniversary of D-Day. Clinton’s message implied that opposing Trump in the upcoming election was a continuation of the fight to protect democracy, akin to the actions of the soldiers who landed at Normandy.

Clinton’s post read, “Eighty years ago today, thousands of brave Americans fought to protect democracy on the shores of Normandy. This November, all we have to do is vote.” By restricting comments on her post, Clinton signaled that she anticipated negative reactions to her controversial comparison.

Prominent figures were quick to respond. Army Ranger veteran Sean Parnell and others criticized Clinton’s message. Radio host Dana Loesch condemned the post, saying, “In 2016, you attempted to undo everything they fought for by partnering with Fusion GPS to launder discredited oppo in the press, and merchandise it into surveillance warrants on enemies through FISA. Were my WWII vet grandparents alive today they’d slam this.”

Clinton’s message has reignited debates over political rhetoric and the use of historical events for contemporary political points. Critics argue that comparing Trump to Hitler diminishes the gravity of the Nazi regime and the sacrifices made during World War II. The controversy underscores the ongoing polarization in American politics and the contentious nature of Clinton’s and Trump’s political legacies.
