During his farewell speech, President Obama compared the D-Day invasion, arguably the most important battle in history where thousands died, to a riot at a gay bar.

In the speech, Obama said:
For 240 years, our nation’s call to citizenship has given work and purpose to each new generation. It’s what led patriots to choose republic over tyranny, pioneers to trek west, slaves to brave that makeshift railroad to freedom. It’s what pulled immigrants and refugees across oceans and the Rio Grande, it’s what pushed women to reach for the ballot, it’s what powered workers to organize. It’s why GI’s gave their lives at Omaha Beach and Iwo Jima; Iraq and Afghanistan – and why men and women from Selma to Stonewall were prepared to give theirs as well.
Comparing a battle where brave Americans fought and died in order to defeat Nazism to a fight at a gay bar is completely disrespectful to those who have fought for the armed services.
It also shows that Obama had no idea what he was talking about.
