Our Vice President told us all to “Enjoy the Long weekend,” on this Memorial Day holiday. Kamala Harris Tweeted out a flattering photo of herself, rather than remembering the fallen military men and women who served this country.

Fortunately for Floridians, Gov. Ron DeSantis knows why we are enjoying this long weekend:
No better way to start Memorial Day Weekend than a Salute to America’s Heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice. pic.twitter.com/InvxHnwCpj

Many on social media were offended at what they felt was a snub by the second in commend of the United States, to members of the military, veterans, retired military and families of military members.

“Nothing says ‘Thank You for dying for our nation’ like a picture of oneself and a note about how long the weekend is going to be. And they knew that. They knew they were going to get hate from patriots,” BaseUnderground.com wrote.
Some compared VP Harris’ flippant comment to President Donald Trump’s respectful treatment of the military:

Far too many Americans have forgotten what Memorial Day commemorates, or never knew. And in California, our schools are teaching everything but history. There are some wonderful charter schools like John Adams Academy in Roseville, CA, which makes sure U.S. History lives on in the memories of our children. John Adams offers a American Classical Leadership Education, a liberty-based education that leads a scholar to servant leadership through the pursuit of truth and the development of virtue and wisdom. Those students learn the history and background of the founding fathers, and what it was about America that produced such great servant leaders. We need more John Adams Academies.
Whether she was just being flippant, or deliberately insulted America’s military and military families, VP Harris missed an opportunity to chip away at the iceberg many Americans, and Californians feel engulfs her. She’s one breath away from the Oval Office, yet is dismissive of the military.
She and her team are not naive and sent her Tweet message to the hate-America crowd.
But there was enough blowback that Sunday VP Harris Tweeted a more appropriate message, although the damage was done. No one believes her now.
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.

“For Harris, the military is a social justice experiment,” Andrea Widburg writes at American Thinker. “If you need any proof of that, just think of Kamala’s humorless, woke joke at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, when she spoke at the recent graduation. The joke was stupid, her delivery was awful, and it was only her anguished cackle that earned some polite applause and laughter from the graduates, who were too nice to leave her looking like the tone-deaf political abortion she is:”
🚨 CRINGE ALERT 🚨
Kamala Harris tells woke joke about a female Marine
at the Navy Academy – IT BOMBS.
Cadets groan as Kamala cackles awkwardly alone onstage.
Kamala also told the cadets to use "wind energy" for "combat power."
The Biden humiliation of our Military continues. pic.twitter.com/rQghgIA6rM
