Democratic Representatives Cori Bush and Ilhan Omar, known for their far-left political stance, recently made a public misstep by seemingly confusing Memorial Day with Veterans Day.

Both Congresswomen released statements in observance of the national holiday, but their messages suggested a misunderstanding of the distinction between Memorial Day, a day to honor American soldiers who have lost their lives, and Veterans Day, a day to honor all who have served in the military.

Omar initially posted on a social media platform, stating, "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."

Similarly, Bush posted, "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."

Upon being alerted to their errors, both Congresswomen promptly deleted their original posts and replaced them with more accurately worded messages.

Omar then wrote, "On Memorial Day, let’s say thank you to the brave men and women who selflessly sacrificed their lives in service to our country. Thank you to the families who also have sacrificed and have dedicated their time to ensuring their loved ones are remembered."

Bush added, "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. We must continue to push to protect our service members while working to build a world free of war and violence."

Despite their efforts to correct their mistakes, the initial missteps of these left-leaning representatives were not forgotten by the internet community.
