Harris wrote Sunday “Throughout our history our service men and women have risked everything to defend our freedoms and our country. As we prepare to honor them on Memorial Day, we remember their service and their sacrifice.”
One Twitter user replied “I guess it is more than a long weekend after all isn’t it ??”
Another Twitter user wrote “Way to try and save your rear.. this should have been the comment not have a nice long weekend”
