Marine Veteran Paul Szoldra replied “Real misfire here. It is a long weekend. It’s also Memorial Day weekend, which means far more that our government officials should acknowledge: a time to remember and honor the millions of Americans who lost their lives in our nation’s defense.”
He added in a follow-up tweet “I have people replying that I’m “nitpicking.” Nope. Just pointing out the meaning of this holiday that is missed in this tweet by @VP.”
Marine Veteran Joey Jones tweeted “hey @KamalaHarris my buddies wanted me to post our selfie to tell you to “enjoy the long weekend” too!”
