Trump Gives Epic Response After D-Day Hero Flirts with Melania
Trump Gives Epic Response After D-Day Hero Flirts with Melania The 75th anniversary of D-Day has been marked with a series of solemn commemorations both in the United Kingdom and in France. However, even as we remember one of the gravest hours in human history, there are still moments for levity. Thomas Cuthbert, a 93-year-old British D-Day veteran, provided just one of those moments on Wednesday. “A flirty D-Day veteran brought laughter to commemorations when he cheekily told Donald Trump that if ‘only he was 20 years younger’ while pointing to the First Lady,” Yahoo News reported. Trump’s response? “You could handle it, no question about it,” he said. The encounter came during a meet-and-greet after an hour-long event in Portsmouth, England, honoring those who stormed the beaches on D-Day, according to The Sun. President Trump performed a reading at the event. “Mr. Cuthbert was awarded the Legion D’Honneur in May 2017 for his role in the D-Day landings during which he served on a landing barge oiler anchored offshore from Utah and Omaha beaches,” the U.K. Metro noted.
