Vice President Kamala Harris’ Memorial Day Message: ‘Enjoy The Long Weekend’

Videos by OutKick

On Saturday, Vice President Kamala Harris acknowledged the Memorial Day weekend with a tweet that failed to mention American veterans.

The embarrassingly glib recognition of Memorial Day has rightfully received a wave of criticism because of its lazy tribute to the important day.

Prior to Saturday’s tweet, the vice president also received criticism for subtly wiping her hand after greeting South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

Neither the tweet nor the hand wipe have garnered the attention of the largely supportive mainstream media.

Democrat leaders have attempted to push patriotism and American traditions out of the educational system and society in general for years now. The Oval Office even omitted the use of “God” on National Prayer Day.

The majority of Americans, especially those with family members who have served, appreciate the freedoms made possible by our veterans and see Memorial Day as an apolitical, unifying experience that commemorates those who have fought for our nation, regardless of political affiliation.

The Harris-Biden administration built their campaign on a message of unity to contrast themselves with Donald Trump’s first term as president. However, they continue to lose ground with average Americans, and now 2024 looks daunting for Democrats.

  1. Its hard to believe that America has this pathetic glib unpatriotic POS broad in this position it is obvious she is so far in over her head its laughable I don’t know where we come as a country that its come to this smfh big time

  2. The hand wiping thing seems unnecessarily tacked on. I remember a article a few years ago talking about how much Purell presidents go through, because of all of the hands they shake. It talked about how Obama was aghast at how W splashed some on his hands the second after they shook the first time, until he started doing the same. The very true point about her not giving a damn about the military could have been made without this point, and better with others.

  3. VP’s tweet is disgraceful.

    Alejandro – recommend you correct the article:

    “Memorial Day is a unifying experience meant to commemorate those who have fought and died for our nation … void of any political agenda.”

  4. Tyler is right, they hate our country, the brave folks that served and died for our freedoms. White conservatives, especially older white males are a threat to their power and are fighting to make us disappear.

  5. Let’s not forget when she ran for President after the 1st debate the Democrats loathed her and she meekly dropped out. She’s VP because they needed the #metoo and BLM matter votes.
