President Joe Biden failed to acknowledge the 77th anniversary of D-Day on Sunday, commemorating the day brave American heroes stormed the beaches of Normandy to liberate France from Nazi Germany, a major turning point in World War II. Biden's press secretary Jen Psaki was grilled about the matter Monday.
Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked Psaki about the absence of a D-Day statement from the White House: "Presidents Bush, Obama, and Trump all commemorated D-Day anniversaries on D-Day. Why didn't President Biden?"
On June 6, 1944 the United States along with US allies pulled-off one of the greatest military operations on record. An estimated 2,400 Americans died on D-Day. 90 percent of troops that first stepped off landing boats didn’t survive leaving their mothers, wives, and daughters. The battle led to the US and its allies defeating Germany and liberating France from the Nazi’s.
There was no mention of D-Day on either of Biden’s Twitter accounts on Sunday. Instead, Biden shared a video about the Tulsa massacre.
This is not the first time Biden displayed his blatant lack of respect for the United States military.
Heading into Memorial Day Weekend—a weekend to honor our Nation’s fallen heroes—President Biden tweeted, "Stay cool this weekend, folks."
While Vice President Kamala Harris issued an appalling tweet on Memorial Day Weekend, saying to "Enjoy the long weekend" instead of honoring our fallen American heroes, Harris, unlike Biden, acknowledged D-Day.
