Press Secretary Jen Psaki had no explanation Monday for why President Joe Biden failed to acknowledge the anniversary of D-Day on June 6.
On June 6, 1944, in World War II, Allied forces invaded northern France by means of beach landings in Normandy. The operation was the largest seaborne invasion in history. Nearly 160,000 troops crossed the English Channel on D-Day with 875,000 men disembarking by the end of June. Allied casualties on the first day were at least 10,000, with 4,414 confirmed dead.
So yeah, it’s kind of a big deal, but Biden forgot to mention it.
Side note: There might be more respect for this administration if their press secretary would give a straight answer to a question. This little dance where Psaki spews a bunch of words at reporters in the hopes of distracting attention from the original question is amateur hour.
Let us help you, Jen.
Reporter: “Why didn’t Biden acknowledge D-Day?”
Psaki: “He forgot. The man is 78-years old going on 110. He can barely string two sentences together when he’s reading them directly from a pre-written script. You need to lower your expectations of what a president should be, mister man. Awake and aware of his surroundings isn’t part of the job description to my knowledge.”
See how much better that feels, Jen? Just tell the truth. We all know.
