Ilhan Omar Blatantly Disrespects Veterans On Memorial Day

Members of the “Squad,” Representatives Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Cori Bush (D-MO), seemed to mix up Memorial Day, a day dedicated to honoring deceased American service members, with Veterans Day, a day meant to honor all who have served.

In a now deleted tweet, Omar posted from her congressional account:

“On #MemorialDay, we honor the heroic men and women who served our country. 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.”

Bush was quick to follow suit, posting:

“This #MemorialDay & every day, we honor our veterans in St. Louis. 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.”
