Squad Members Omar and Bush Make Embarrassing Gaffes 

Daily Report May 28,2024

Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Cori Bush (D-MD) face criticism for confusing Memorial Day with Veteran’s Day in now-deleted social media posts.

On Monday, Omar and Bush posted on X expressing gratitude to veterans for their service. Both Democrat radical lawmakers tagged the celebration as Memorial Day. However, Monday was Veterans Day, a day to celebrate service members. On the other hand, Memorial Day is a day to remember service members who have fallen in line duty.

“On Memorial Day, 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,” Omar posted on her congressional account.

“This Memorial Day and every day, we honor our veterans in St.Louis. We must invest in universal healthcare, affordable housing, comprehensive mental health services, and educational and economic opportunities for our veterans as we work to build a world free of war and violence,” Bush also posted on her congressional account.

Social media critics quickly pointed out the mistake, indicating the importance of Memorial Day, which honors fallen service members.

Responding to the critics, Omar and Bush deleted their original posts and posted new ones acknowledging the significance of Memorial Day.

“On Memorial Day, let’s say thank you to the brave men and women who selflessly sacrificed their lives in service to our country,” Omar posted on her congressional account. “Thank you to the families who have also sacrificed and dedicated their time to ensuring their loved ones are remembered.”

On the other hand, Bush posted on her congressional account.

“This #MemorialDay, we honor those who served and lost their lives for our country, and we hold in our hearts the loved ones they’ve left behind,” Bush wrote. “We must continue to push to protect our service members while working to build a world free of war and violence.”

Monday was not the first time a member of Omar and Bush’s radical squad has made an embarrassing tweet on X. In 2019, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) identified former U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY) as one of the Republican Party’s older members.


GOP: Let’s pose our older male members next to cardboard cutouts of young female legislators,” AOC posted on X with a picture of Yarmuth posing alongside a cardboard cutout of her.

Ocasio-Cortez deleted the tweet after critics spotted the mistake. She never offered any explanation.
