Kamala Harris has a message for Americans ahead of one of the most somber and meaningful holidays for gold star families and all citizens who respect veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
Ahead of the Memorial Day holiday, meant to be a time of deep reflection and gratitude for our men and women in uniform, Harris issued one of the most casual and unmeaningful statements one could imagine.

“Enjoy the long weekend,” Harris’s official vice presidential account tweeted.
Lest anyone should be confused by the backlash, Memorial Day isn’t about “enjoying” the deaths of American service members. It is about memorializing them. Hence the name of the holiday. Furthermore, it means more than a “long weekend” for those who have lost loved ones who served in wartime or who died while serving in the military.
The tone deaf tweet provoked no small share of criticism.
I know you think the "long weekend" is a chance to post a pic 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.

This isn’t a “long weekend.” It’s a weekend where we honor the fallen.

Memorial Day is to honor our fallen vets who gave their lives for our country, and to reflect with somber gratitude at their sacrifice, not a long weekend to enjoy you vacuous ghoulish opportunist.

On Friday, Kamala Harris gave a speech to Navy academy cadets, who were forced to endure cringy ‘Woke jokes’ and her trademark cackle.

Cadets groan as Kamala cackles awkwardly alone onstage.
Kamala also told the cadets to use "wind energy" for "combat power."

That was while President Biden was busy giving creepy comments to little girls in Virginia. Biden had this unspirational message for Americans on the holiday, which he also lacked the respect to name.
Stay cool this weekend, folks. pic.twitter.com/Z2xOTekvUZ

“Stay cool this weekend, folks.” This administration really is a piece of work.
