The fake news media has to daily present ugly, fake news, even during a time such as the momentous ceremonies marking the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

CNN talking head Jim Acosta tried to blame President Donald Trump for the late start of this morning’s ceremonies, in spite of clear evidence that it was host country French President Emmanuel Macron who was the one who kept everyone waiting for his arrival.

Sometimes you just have to watch for yourself to see how twisted and vile the Acostas of the media world are. Note in this short, tweeted video how, even as Acosta is complaining about Trump and Fox News, the simultaneous CNN video is showing the President and First Lady Melania waiting for Macron to get the ball rolling. Note also that after making his childish remarks, he tries to regather himself, saying you “have to put all that aside” because of the “stirring, remarkable moment for the world to witness, as politics was put aside.”

Truthfully, Trump was indeed talking with Laura Ingraham of Fox News as he awaited Macron, but he was done with that interview before the French President’s arrival.

Bill Neely of NBC took a different approach to fictionalize the situation, tweeting …

MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson was also quick to spread the fake news.

She offered a lame correction after her original tweet garnered a massive number of retweets.

Once the French President showed up, the Trumps and Macrons began the ceremonies by entering the Normandy American Cemetery.

By all accounts, even those poor souls from MSNBC and CNN reported that President Trump’s subsequent speech to those gathered was powerful. MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said, “[He] delivered what, again, I believe is the strongest speech of his presidency.”

The President “got it right,” and that the speech was “well-written” and “well-delivered,” said Tom Brokaw of NBC.

President Trump’s address

Read and watch a part of the President’s speech here …

“They came from the farms of a vast heartland, the streets of glowing cities and the forges of mighty industrial towns. Before the war, many had never ventured beyond their own community. Now they had come to offer their lives, half a world from home.

“This beach code-named ‘Omaha’ was defended by the Nazis with monstrous fire power, thousands and thousands of mines and spikes driven into the sand so it was here that tens of thousands of the Americans came, the GIs who boarded the landing craft that morning, knew that they carried on their shoulders not just the pack of a soldier, but the fate of the world.

“Colonel George Taylor, whose 16th Infantry regiment would join in the first wave was asked, what would happen if the Germans stopped then right then and there, cold on the beach, just stopped them? What would happen? This great American replied, why, the 18th Infantry is coming in right behind us, the 26th Infantry will come on too. Then there is the 2nd Infantry Division already afloat and the 9th Division and the Second Armored and the 3rd Armored and all the rest. Maybe the 16th won’t make it, but someone will.

“One of those men in Taylor’s 16th regiment was Army medic Ray Lambert. Ray was only 23 but he had already earned three Purple Hearts and two Silver Stars fighting in North Africa and Sicily, where he and his brother Bill, no longer with us, served side by side.

“In the early morning hours, the two brothers stood together on the deck of the USS Henrico before boarding two separate Higgins landing craft. ‘If I don’t make it,’ Bill said, ‘please, please take care of my family.’ Ray asked his brother to do the same. Of the 31 men on Ray’s landing craft, only Ray and six others made it to the beach. There were only a few of them left. They came to the sector right here below us. Easy Red it was called. Again and again Ray ran back into the water and dragged out one man after another. He was shot through the arm. His leg was ripped open by shrapnel. His back was broken. He nearly drowned. He had been on the beach for hours bleeding and saving lives when he finally lost consciousness. He woke up the next day on a cot beside another badly wounded soldier. He looked over and saw his brother Bill. They made it. They made it. They made it. At 98 years old, Ray is here with us today with his fourth Purple Heart and his third Silver Star from Omaha. Ray, the free world salutes you.”
