Ilhan Omar and Cori Bush Are Forced to Delete Their Memorial Day Tweets for Very Embarrassing Reason

Two progressive ‘Squad’ members scrambled to delete posts about Memorial Day highlighting how little the lawmakers know about the longtime U.S. holiday.

Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Cori Bush of Missouri both posted tributes to soldiers on X Monday but quickly worked to delete their own posts after recognizing a fatal flaw in their tweets.

Both progressives ‘Squad’ members used the holiday to advocate for housing and healthcare reform, demanding that veterans get the treatment they deserve.

But unbeknownst to them – or at least their inept communications teams – Memorial Day celebrates the lives of fallen soldiers, not ones that are still living.

The federal holiday for veterans is, well, Veterans Day, which is observed on November 11 each year.

‘On #MemorialDay, we honor the heroic men and women who served our country,’ Omar posted before quickly wiping the statement from her X account.

‘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.’

Her advocating for reforms for soldiers’ benefits does not make sense as those who are celebrated on Monday’s holiday are no longer alive and therefore would no longer need jobs, housing, healthcare or other benefits.

And the same mistake was made by her fellow ‘Squad’ member Bush.

‘This #MemorialDay & every day, we honor our veterans in St. Louis,’ Bush wrote on X before quickly deleting the post.

In the post she went as far to say she honors ‘our veterans,’ clearly indicating that she or her team believed Memorial Day was for soldiers still living.

Her post continued on advocating for progressive goals.

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

It is unclear, however, how universal healthcare, education and economic opportunities would benefit America’s finest who have passed on.

To their credit, their celebration of U.S. veterans is a nicety not normally expressed by the anti-war lawmakers.

Usually the pair of progressives is outspoken about ‘genocide’ being enacted on Palestinians by Israel or the brave resolve of pro-Gaza protestors that recently set up illegals camps on college campuses nationwide.
