Archived: Heres How Trump and Obama Honored Memorial Day

President Donald Cadet Bone Spurs” Trump and his predecessor sent very different messages on Twitter in light of Memorial Day.


In typical fashion, Trump managed to make the day about himself.

Trump’s tweet did not go unnoticed by veterans. VoteVets, an organization representing about half a million veterans and their families, deemed the president’s tweet the most inappropriate #MemorialDay comment that a @POTUS has ever made”:

Obama, meanwhile, expressed his gratitude for our fallen heroes.”

Even while in office, Obama affirmed who the day is about. He tweeted in 2016:

Trump, who was campaigning for the presidency at the time, wrote:

Trump’s tone-deaf tweets come as no surprise from a man who dodged the draft multiple times and once said he’d always wanted a Purple Heart.

Twitter did not take kindly to the president’s self-centeredness.
