Democratic Representatives Confuse Holidays

Not one, but two Democratic representatives confuse Memorial Day with Veterans Day.

The two “Squad” members posted a similar message on X in an attempt to honor the federal holiday.

Fox News adds quotes from the two posts:

“On Memorial Day, we honor the heroic men and women who served our country,” Omar wrote, according to multiple screenshots before the post was taken down. “We owe them more than our gratitude – they have more than earned access to quality mental health services, job opportunities, housing assistance, and the benefits they were promised.”

Bush’s post read similarly, “This Memorial Day and every day, we honor our veterans in St. Louis. We must invest in universal healthcare, affordable housing, comprehensive mental health services, and educational and economic opportunities for our veterans as we work to build a world free of war and violence.”

Unfortunately for the two representatives, people quickly pointed out that they both mixed up the meaning of Memorial Day, and were instead referring to Veterans Day, which is celebrated in November.

Here are just a few of the posts from people pointing out the obvious mistake:


These posts just further prove the point that these two should not hold any political power.
