Biden Neglects To Commemorate D-Day, Tweets About Tulsa Massacre Instead

President Joe Biden reportedly chose to upload a video of himself meeting with survivors of the 1921 Tulsa Massacre instead of commemorating the 77th anniversary of D-Day on June 6.

None of Biden’s Twitter accounts — @POTUS, @JoeBiden, or @WhiteHouse — had mentioned the D-Day which is often referred to as the largest amphibious invasion ever undertaken.

Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert called out the Democrat president for appearing to forget the D-Day anniversary. 

“Neither Joe Biden’s personal nor his official Presidential Twitter acknowledged #DDay yesterday,” the GOP lawmaker wrote on Twitter.

“Perhaps he knows that he has less in common with the Allies of that time and much more in common with the Axis,” she added.

“On the 77th Anniversary of #DDay, President Biden made no mention of the incredible sacrifice our military & allied forces made. President Trump never forgot their sacrifice,” Jessie Jane Duff, Newsmax Contributor said.

Vice President Kamala Harris however, posted about D-Day after also drawing criticism for her “enjoy the long weekend” tweet during the Memorial Day weekend.

“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,” she wrote.

According to records from the British Normandy Memorial 22,442 people were killed on D-Day and at the Battle of Normandy. 

D-Day” opened a second front that led to the eventual defeat and downfall of Nazi Germany.  In 1944, more than 5,000 ships and landing craft were employed to transport troops and supplies, while some 11,000 aircraft were mobilized to provide air cover and support for the largest military assault in history.
