Biden fails to recognize D-Day anniversary
President Biden enraged Twitter users when he didn’t recognize the 77th anniversary of D-Day Sunday.
Biden didn’t tweet or put out an official statement to commemorate the WWII event. Yet in the past, he recognized Pride month, Asian American and Pacific Islander month, and also the anniversary of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
Newsmax anchor Benny Johnson pointed out Biden’s neglect Monday morning. He called the faux pas “a disgrace.”
But Vice President Harris remembered the date, and tweeted about the historical event on its anniversary. “We will never forget their courage and sacrifice.”
Even the First Lady, Dr. Jill Biden remembered to commemorate the anniversary. She also echoed Harris’ tweet, writing “Let us never forget those who fought, their families, or sacrifices, and let us always pray for peace.”
Apparently, Biden and his social media team must have thought that was enough.
