I don't know what time zone he's using, but I'm relatively sure that mike was referencing the V-E Day of WWII. Wiki has it listed as 8 May for most countries. The Commonwealth Nations celebrate on 7 May. It's the day that the Allies officially claimed victory in the European Theatre of WWII.

To be fair, our TRUE hegemony didn't start until 1991.

Wasn't totally solidified until after the Cold War ended. We got to be big shit, but we were big shit with competition.

It still doesn't change the fact that we were (and still are) the dominant power in the West. Hegemony is not the same as supremacy.
