Veterans Join Forces To Rail On Kamala Harris For Her Disgusting Memorial Day Tweet

On Saturday, Vice President Kamala Harris posted a disgusting, self-praising tweet where she commemorated Memorial Day Weekend by posting her best image of herself with the caption: “Enjoy the long weekend.”

Instead of posting a tweet to honor our fallen soldiers, Harris took the opportunity to share her best photo of herself.

Veterans across America quickly joined forces to rail on the Vice President for her disgusting, tone-deaf tweet.

Marine Corps veteran and Fox News contributor Joey Jones, who is also a double amputee, tweeted: “hey @KamalaHarris my buddies wanted me to post our selfie to tell you to ‘enjoy the long weekend’ too!”

Retired Navy SEAL Derrick Van Orden posted on Twitter: “This ‘long weekend’ for you is paid for by the blood of our Patriots.”

Retired Army Col. Kurt Schlichter tweeted a photo of headstones at Arlington Cemetery with the caption: “I’m sure they would if they could”:

Marine veteran Paul Szoldra said: “Real misfire here. “It is a long weekend. It’s also Memorial Day weekend, which means far more that our government officials should acknowledge: a time to remember and honor the millions of Americans who lost their lives in our nation’s defense.”

Kamala Harris has a history of disrespecting the military. Check out what the Daily Wire reported:

Vice President Kamala Harris has broken a tradition maintained by at least the last two of her predecessors and skipped saluting military guards before boarding Air Force Two.

Harris was captured on video Monday walking past servicemen without saluting before boarding the jet. Former Vice Presidents Mike Pence and Joe Biden each maintained the practice of saluting servicemen before boarding and after exiting the plane during their tenures, according to Fox News.

“DISGRACEFUL: @VP Kamala Harris refuses to salute the honor guard at the steps of the aircraft. It is a clear demonstration of her dislike for those in uniform, both law-enforcement and military,” former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik wrote in a caption of the video posted to Twitter.
