Reporter Asks Psaki Why Biden Did Not Commemorate the 77th Anniversary of D-Day

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked why President Joe Biden did not commemorate the 77th anniversary of D-Day.

During a press briefing on Monday, Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked, “Presidents Bush, Obama, and Trump all commemorated D-Day anniversaries on the D-Day anniversary. Why didn’t President Biden?”

She responded, “Well, I can tell you that certainly, his value for the role the men who served on D-Day, and the memory of them, the families who have kept their memories alive over the course of years on this day is something the president has spoke to many times in the past. It’s close to his heart.”

“I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s more we would have to say about it,” she added.

June 6 was the 77th anniversary of D-Day, when Allied forces invaded northern France in World War II.

However, conservatives noted that Biden did not issue a tweet commemorating the military operation from his @POTUS, @JoeBiden, or the @WhiteHouse account.

While Biden did not tweet about D-Day, First Lady Jill Biden tweeted on Sunday, “77 years ago, families gathered around radios and heard FDR pray for a ‘peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil.’ Let us never forget those who fought, their families, or sacrifices, and let us always pray for peace.”

And Vice President Kamala Harris wrote, “On the 77th anniversary of #DDay, we honor the heroes who stormed the beaches of Normandy and liberated a continent. We will never forget their courage and sacrifice.”

Harris recently came under fire for tweeting a picture of herself with the caption, “Enjoy the long weekend” before Memorial Day.

Critics noted her initial tweet did not mention service members.

She later tweeted, “Throughout our history our service men and women have risked everything to defend our freedoms and our country. As we prepare to honor them on Memorial Day, we remember their service and their sacrifice.”
