Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Cori Bush (D-MO) deleted posts on Memorial Day after facing backlash online for not understanding what the day is about.

Bush posted on her official government X account: “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.”

Omar followed suit, adding just a few minutes later on her government X 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.”

Memorial Day is observed every year on the last Monday during the month of May to honor U.S. service members who have died while in the U.S. Military.

Veterans Day is observed on November 11 every year, regardless of what day it falls on, and is a day to honor everyone who has served in the U.S. Military and is “is largely intended to thank LIVING veterans for their service,” the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs says.

Both lawmakers faced criticism online for their posts.

Popular conservative commentator AG wrote: “So do any of the squad members actually know what Memorial Day is about?”


“Ilhan Omar misunderstanding Memorial Day is incredibly on brand,” said Town Hall writer John Hasson.

Libs of TikTok added: “Cori Bush just deleted this tweet where she confused Memorial Day with Veterans Day.”
