Joe Biden faced a brutal backlash on social media Monday after the president failed to acknowledge the D-Day invasion 78 years after the Allied Forces stormed the beach to liberate Nazi-controlled Europe.
From Fox News:
With the 78th anniversary of D-Day nearly over, President Biden has so far failed to issue a statement on the historic day that was widely regarded as a decisive turning point during World War II.
The snub marked the second year in a row the Biden White House failed to issue any kind of statement on the anniversary.
The nearest military-related tweeted on the president’s Twitter feed includes a shout-out to Admiral Linda Fagan, the first woman to serve as Commandant of the Coast Guard, and the first woman to lead any branch of the Armed Forces.
Another recent tweet from the president included his meeting with K-pop band, BTS, with whom he discussed anti-Asian hate crimes.
Biden did send Army Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, to Normandy, where he likened the Normandy invasion to Ukraine’s fight against Russia.
