The White House did not issue an official presidential proclamation on the 78th Anniversary of D-Day, which would be the second year in a row they neglected to do so.
Joe Biden did not tweet about the brave men who stormed Normandy’s beaches, France until 8:45 p.m. in Washington D.C.
The tweet said, “Today We Mark 78 Years Since D-Day”. It also honored those who served on the beaches of Normandy. We must never forget their sacrifices for freedom and live up to the ideals they fought for.
The generic statements should have been sent by 8:45 a.m. and not hesitate Many are now asking if the White House communications team has forgotten to send the generic statement.
Fox News’ Jacqui Heinrich pointed out that both Barack Obama and George W. Bush had declared D-Day. It is therefore strange and shameful that Biden had not declared D-Day until after 8 pm.

Here are some other celebrations the president has announced for June as if veterans weren’t enough. According to the White House website
National Immigrant Heritage Month
National Caribbean-American Heritage Month
National Ocean Month
National Homeownership Month
LGBTQI Pride Month
Great Outdoors Month
Black Music Appreciation Month
It was impossible for the many Americans who died fighting fascism in this country to be remembered in one day. It is important that we remember their sacrifices as well as the reasons for them.
According to the Associated Press, even though the number of D-Day veterans still alive is likely to decrease rapidly, there are still some.
The White House will offer its condolences to the families of veterans who have lost loved ones on D-Day or during it. The president should designate a day of remembrance.
Americans set the bar low for the Biden administration, yet they keep failing to meet even those rock bottom expectations in almost all areas. It should be pretty easy for the White House, of all places, not to insult elderly veterans, but they even managed to mess that up.
