Kamala Harris ignores Memorial day in ‘enjoy the long weekend’ tweet

Vice President Kamala Harris sent a tweet telling Americans to “enjoy the long weekend” and disregard America’s national day of mourning, Memorial day.

Vice President Kamala Harris drew heat online Saturday for telling Americans to “enjoy the long weekend” — which ends with a national day of mourning.

Harris tweeted the celebratory words Saturday afternoon, alongside a picture of herself smiling. She did not mention Memorial Day, the upcoming federal holiday reserved for honoring military members that have died protecting the US.

Reactions to the tweet were largely negative and sarcastic, with one user replying, “I’ve never been able to “enjoy” Memorial Day. It became that much harder when I lost my son fighting for this country. Thanks anyway Madam Vice President.
