Self-described Republican strategist Steve Schmidt appeared on MSNBC Friday, making a comparison to D-Day over alleged Russian “hacking.”
Appearing on MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House,” Schmidt said, “We talk about the hacking that took place in the election. It boggles my mind that so many Republicans seem incapable of understanding this was not an attack on the Democratic Party, it was an attack on the United States of America and the election process.”
“If you stand in the American cemetery in Normandy, France, the graves are not marked by Republicans and Democrats, they are marked by American Patriots. We’re all in this together. We’re one people, one country, and when you see Trump’s further erosion of trust, trust and institutions, our very system, the cynicism he is injecting into it. The degree to which he is coarsening our culture, endangering the lives of millions of Americans with his recklessness and national security policy, it is quite extraordinary to behold,” he finished.
