US Reps Omar and Bush delete their clueless Memorial Day tweets after mixing up holidays


Two members of the so-called progressive House “Squad” faced an embarrassing barrage of criticism that caused them to take down clueless social media posts about Memorial Day.

Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Cori Bush (D-Mo.) deleted posts on X after they were blasted for missing the point of the holiday that is meant to honor those who sacrificed their lives in service to America.

“On #MemorialDay, we honor the heroic men and women who served our country,” Omar wrote in a now-deleted post.

“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,” she added.

“This #MemorialDay & every day, we honor our veterans in St. Louis,” Bush wrote in a similar fashion. ”

We must invest in universal health care, affordable housing, comprehensive mental health services, and educational & economic opportunities for our veterans as we work to build a world free of war and violence.”

Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May and “commemorates the men and women who died while in the military service,” according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

On the other hand, November 11 is observed as Veterans Day, a federal holiday set aside to honor all military veterans.

Omar later posted a more appropriate message.

But the initial posts drew heated rebukes and criticism that reverberated on X.

  1. These two people couldn’t care less about our great soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice. They hate America and anything pertaining to it. The whole squad should be on a chain gang doing 20 years.
