It’s certainly not a secret that Donald Trump is a bit of a narcissist, but clearly, he was primed by his interview with British conservative Piers Morgan for today’s observances of the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, to think he was somehow entitled to act like he should be honored as well.
During that interview, Trump told his host that he felt like he was “making up for” his own lack of military service by being President, all while minimizing the impact and importance of the Vietnam War. But the truth is, no one in the entire Trump family has ever served in the military, let alone in the biggest theater of war in history, Europe during World War Two.
But from the way he acted today, you’d think his feet were first to touch the ground when they stormed the beaches at Normandy.
In Portsmouth, England, Trump and First Lady Melania joined the Queen in honoring those who served in WWII, attending ceremonies and saluting flags. Trump even read Franklin Roosevelt’s D-Day prayer at one event.
But when world leaders gathered to sign a joint proclamation that signals the effort to make sure that nothing like that terrible war is ever repeated, Trump took a liberty that was, frankly, kind of gross. See if you can spot the highly inappropriate thing that Donald Trump thought was totally appropriate to do with the letter being signed by a bunch of his equals:

There’s even a line in the letter that reads, “We commit to work constructively as friends and allies to find common ground where we have differences of opinion and to work together to resolve international tensions peacefully.”
Somehow that signature says he doesn’t see the rest of them as friends or allies, but as subjects — kind of like he sees the people of America.
