Kamala blasted for tone-deaf Memorial Day tweet, attempts damage control

Vice President Kamala Harris drew the ire of Americans everywhere this weekend with a tone-deaf Memorial Day tweet that made no mention of the holiday’s solemn meaning, prompting what appeared to be a re-do attempt on Sunday, according to the Washington Times.

The controversy began when Harris took to social media on Saturday, urging followers to “Enjoy the long weekend” and posting a photo of herself with a broad smile into what appeared to be a crowd.

It did not take long, however, for critics to take note of the fact that Harris made no mention at all of why the long holiday weekend to which she referred is observed in the first place and that she did not offer any words of gratitude or tribute to those who have sacrificed their lives in defense of their country.

Political commentator and congressional candidate Robby Starbuck wasted no time in offering Harris a bit of insight on the topic, tweeting, “I know you think the ‘long weekend’ is a chance to post a pick of yourself and get some mimosas as you plan to rip our country apart, but it’s actually a time to appreciate the brave soldiers who died for our country & to reflect on the LIFETIME their families spend without them.”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) entered the Twitter fray as well, saying, “Memorial Day weekend is a time to remember and express our gratitude to the men and women in uniform who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. It’s NOT just a long weekend.”

Harris was not totally without support, however, as Charlotte Clymer, LGBTQ activist and past spokeswoman for the Human Rights Campaign stated, according to the Times, “The vice president’s ‘long weekend’ tweet doesn’t bother me because I’m a reasonable adult who understands ‘enjoy the long weekend’ is something that even service members and veterans often say to each other at the start of Memorial Day weekend. This is ridiculous.”

Apparently – albeit belatedly – realizing that as vice president, she probably should pay homage to the uniformed men and women the rest of the country is saluting this weekend, Harris took a second crack at the topic, tweeting on Sunday, “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.”

Given Harris’ history of apparent disdain for the military as evidenced by her refusal to salute honor guard members while boarding official aircraft, and her insistence on injecting wokeism into this year’s Naval Academy commencement address, the vice president’s eventual acknowledgment of the holiday’s meaning rings rather false and feels more like – as Fox News’ Deneen Borelli put it, “Clean up aisle 5.”
