After intentionally insulting U.S. military veterans leading up to Memorial Day, Vice President Kamala Harris scrambled to save face, posting a phony tribute to fallen service members. Kamala received immense backlash online after she failed to mention the U.S. military, instead telling her followers to enjoy “the long weekend” as Memorial Day approached.
Read her disingenuous, half-hearted tribute to our military veterans here:
Throughout our history our service men and women have risked everything to defend our freedoms and our country. As we prepare to honor them on Memorial Day, we remember their service and their sacrifice.
— Vice President Kamala Harris (@VP) May 30, 2021
Just a day before Kamala tweeted a ‘selfie’ showing her signature giggle that everyone just adores (yeah right) and encouraged her sycophants to “enjoy the long weekend” with no mention of why Americans are able to enjoy an extra day off work.
Several people online slammed the Vice President for ignoring the men and women who lost their lives serving this country, ensuring our freedoms, and protecting our liberties – the facets of American life the Biden-Harris administration wish to destroy.
Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert tweeted in responsed:
Care to mention WHY we’re having a long weekend, Kamala?

Real misfire here. It is a long weekend. It’s also Memorial Day weekend, which means far more that our government officials should acknowledge: a time to remember and honor the millions of Americans who lost their lives in our nation’s defense https://t.co/RCPwPf4TdL https://t.co/xKyyaOkkQA

American soldiers paid for the freedoms & comforts we enjoy on Memorial Day with their lives.
Madam Vice President, I encourage you to reflect on the meaning of this holiday. It's not just a "long weekend."

Stay cool this weekend, folks. pic.twitter.com/Z2xOTekvUZ

President Joe Biden posted a similar tweet about the weekend, without a reference to the military.
Both Biden and Harris did not break with tradition, both giving speeches on Memorial Day. Meanwhile, Harris made history as the first woman to deliver a commencement address at the U.S. Naval Academy. Biden gave an address on Sunday, along with a tribute to his fallen son Beau.
