Vice President Kamala Harris has faced intense backlash for her Memorial Day tweet on Saturday where she posted a candid image of herself and wrote: ‘Enjoy the long weekend.’
Critics were quick to point out that her tweet appeared self-serving and made no mention of the federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May honoring soldiers who died while serving in the military.
The tweet was slammed as ‘disgusting’ and ‘tone deaf.’
The post also came hours after she tweeted praising Midshipman Sydney Barber who made history as the first black woman to serve as Brigade Commander at the U.S. Naval Academy.
Harris also spoke at the U.S. Naval Academy’s graduation and commissioning ceremony on Friday during which she called the United States military ‘the best, the bravest, and the most brilliant.’
Vice President Kamala Harris was excoriated on Twitter for posting a candid photo of herself smiling with the caption: ‘Enjoy the long weekend’, without mentioning Memorial Day or that it’s purpose is to honor those who died while serving in the Military
