[See NewsBusters for more.] So that’s how Stephen Colbert honors D-Day? The far-left comedian on Wednesday marked the run-up to the 75th anniversary of Normandy by dressing up in a Navy captain’s uniform and performing a mock interview with Donald Trump. After the sketch, the Late Show host brought up Charlottesville and used the D-Day anniversary to call Trump pro-Nazi. Colbert mocked, “Trump attended the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of D-Day where he read from a prayer by FDR on the radio. And then he remembered that fateful landing on Omaha Beach where the allies fought against the Nazis.” He then played a clip of the President from 2017 in the wake of the awful racist violence in Charlottesville. The two topics mashed together, Trump said, “Very fine people on both sides.”
