White House Fails to Issue an Official D-Day Proclamation

It was reported that the White House did not issue an official presidential proclamation to mark the 78th anniversary of D-Day This is the second year in a row they have failed to issue one.

President Joe Biden did not even issue tweets about the brave men who fought on the beach in Normandy, France, until 8:45 p.m. in Washington D.C.

“Today, we mark 78 years since D-Day and honor those who answered duty's call on the beaches of Normandy,” the tweet reads. “We must never forget their service and sacrifice in defense of freedom, and we must strive every day to live up to the ideals they fought to defend.”

The general statement ought to have been released around 8:45 a.m. instead, and without hesitation. Today, the White House has people doubting whether their communications team was in error on the deadline, which can't, unfortunately, be eliminated in the current circumstances.

Former presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump all declared D-Day, while Fox News correspondent Jacqui Heinrich noted that Biden hasn't done the same and this is inexplicably disrespectful and a disgrace. It is interesting to note that Biden was alive during D-Day in contrast to his predecessors in recent years.

As if this weren't enough of a punch in the face to veterans, there are other festivities that the president has announced throughout the months of June. as per the White House website:

National Immigrant Heritage Month

National Heritage Month of Caribbean Americans

National Ocean Month

National Homeownership Month

LGBTQI Pride Month

Great Outdoors Month

Black Music Appreciation Month

Unfortunately, it was too much to offer the people who fought and died to defend this nation from fascism just one day. Yes, Memorial Day was on May 30th, but that's not a reason to be excused. There were a number of American victims on that day, and remembering their sacrifices and their reasons is an essential part of keeping history alive.

The amount of D-Day veterans alive today is expected to be decreasing rapidly however, there are people who are alive to recount the story as according to the Associated Press.

Their families who died during or following the battle of D-Day are due an apology from the White House. Veterans are treated as second-class citizens at times in the United States and the least that they can ask for is to declare an official day of honor.

Americans set the bar very low for this administration, but they have failed to even meet the lowest expectations in virtually every aspect. It's pretty simple to expect the White House, of all places, to avoid insulting the elderly veteran veterans. But they got it wrong.
