Que retenir finalement du #G7Charlevoix que #Trump quitte ce matin en avance après à peine 24h de présence?Qu'il avance sur la remise en cause d'1 ordre mondial libéral régulé par les #EtatsUnis depuis 1945 et qu'il se moque toujours des salamalecs.#thread…
2) En effet, on a vu de nouveau le président #Macron et le PM canadien #Trudeau revenir à la stratégie #compol des démonstrations d'affection et de dialogue amical, mises en scène pour l'opinion publique, afin de fléchir 1 #Trump qui les accueille poliment SANS s'engager sur rien
3) #Trump plaisante avec (sur?) #Trudeau, complimente-à l'excès- le président #Macron sur leur relation très spéciale, il est comme 1 poisson dans l'eau avec ses jeux de dupes face caméra, qui ne l'impliquent pas...……

On #DDay74, I’m thinking about Bedford, Va which sent 34 young Virginians into battle on #DDay. That day, 19 of them died, and four more gave their lives by the end of the Normandy campaign.
No American town sacrificed more that day, and today Bedford is home to the National D-Day Memorial, commemorating the Bedford Boys and the 10,000+ allied soldiers who gave their lives 74 years ago today.
Today is a somber reminder of the incredible bravery of those who landed on the beaches of Normandy and behind enemy lines on #DDay. Our country is forever indebted to the US and allied troops who led the way in liberating Europe from the Nazis. #DDay74

That awkward moment when you're an incumbent Republican Congresscritter, running for re-election, and tweet out a picture of Hitler's troops to honor #DDay

Gonna guess @DrewFergusonGA / @RepDrewFerguson did Nazi that before tweeting?

[h/t @hayhaydrewdoo]
Too busy trying to weaponize patriotism to notice when you're honoring bona fide Nazis

Nah – Trumpists are loyal to Russians, not Germans

10:45 AM: G Company, 3rd Battalion, 505th has been controlling a checkpoint going into Ste- Mere-Eglise for ~ 2 hours. At ~ 10:45 AM, a German force of 2 companies of infantry, supported by 3 small tanks & 3 tracked guns attacks thee roadblocks.
Myth or Fact? Did Lt. Colonel Ben Vandervoort, commander of 2-505, really order Paratroopers from the 101st to carry him on a cart as famously depicted in the movie "The Longest Day"?

Thread: The 320th Barrage Balloon Battalion – the first African American unit in the segregated US Army to come ashore on D-Day. #DDay
All films about the storming of Omaha Beach in France on June 6, 1944 don’t show any black soldiers. Most textbooks never mention them, but they were there, fighting against tyranny — all while dealing with it at home and in the military.
The 320th were charged with raising hydrogen-filled balloons over the beaches anchored to steel cables. Tucked under the 125-pound gasbags were small bombs .

Until the beaches were cleared, the 320th were infantry troops as well. Digging trenches and round up German troops.
