The President of the United States is expected to know his American history very well. And he’s also expected to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice to their country.
That’s why when significant events like Pearl Harbor and D-Day roll around, POTUS is right there paying respect to our fallen heroes. If he doesn’t, the American public is bound to notice.
And Joe Biden just neglected to commemorate a massively important day in American history.
As most people should know, June 6 was D-Day, arguably the most important date in World War II, when America and allied forces invaded the shores of France and pushed into the Nazi strongholds.
However, instead of honoring the 77th anniversary of that momentous event, Biden talked about something else: the Tulsa Massacre.
And while it was certainly a very sad thing to happen, American veterans and patriots all over the nation were fuming that the President made no mention of D-Day.
Obviously, Biden is just more focused on racism than anything else:

At the time that tweet went up, there was nothing from the President about D-Day. And that just feels like a very bad oversight — even worse if Biden ignored it intentionally.
It doesn’t help that last year, Biden appeared to confused D-Day with Pearl Harbor Day (which is on December 7).
So far, the current administration has faced accusations of pandering to the left and completely ignoring millions of Republican and Conservative Americans. Military members have also voiced their concerns.
In stark contrast, former President Donald Trump was a great friend to the military, as many veterans claimed.
And Trump certainly never missed an opportunity to honor our heroes on all the important military holidays, so it’s even more notable that Biden decided to focus on something else.
It’s worth noting that after Vice President Harris tweeted “Enjoy the long weekend” over the Memorial Day break, she did mention D-Day:
On the 77th anniversary of #DDay, we honor the heroes who stormed the beaches of Normandy and liberated a continent. We will never forget their courage and sacrifice.
— Vice President Kamala Harris (@VP) June 6, 2021
She might’ve learned her lesson.
And given all the criticism Biden has received for not putting D-Day front-and-center (a day when thousands of Americans lost their lives fighting for the freedom of the entire world), maybe he should learn a lesson, too.
Our brave veterans and military members deserve that, at the very least.
- President Joe Biden appeared to ignore D-Day over the weekend. Instead he focused on the 1921 Tulsa tragedy.
- Former President Donald Trump always honored our heroes, which many claim is in stark contrast to the current administration.
- Vice President Harris might’ve learned her lesson after the Memorial Day tweet fiasco.
