Palin accuses Obama of Hiroshima ‘apology lap’
Sarah Palin is repeating a right-wing mantra that is untrue on its face.
The 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee pivoted to Obama’s trip during her opening speech for Trump, calling the trip an “apology lap,” the Washington Post reported, in the Japanese city that was flattened by a US atomic bomb.Palin said Obama was “dissing our vets” and that he believes “the greatest generation was perpetuating the evil of World War II.”
“Our commander in chief suggesting – actually, lying in suggestions – to the world that we were wrong to prove that we would eradicate evil in World War II,” she said.
The president did not apologize for the U.S.’ decision to use an atomic bomb to end World War II in his visit to the memorial site in Hiroshima Friday.
