In case Vice President Kamala Harris needs a refresher about what Memorial Day is all about, it's the last Monday of May when we memorialize those in the Armed Forces who gave their lives for this country so that we may be free. She may actually need that reminder thanks to her tweet, which came from the official vice president account.

Yikes. This comes across as tone deaf, and people certainly noticed, including those who served or knew people who did. 

The tweet was also not the only one which came from that account that weekend.

We can bet what the reaction would be if Vice President Mike Pence had sent out such a tweet. The archived Vice President Mike Pence Twitter account went dark during last year’s “long weekend.” He didn’t tweet at all from May 22-25.

Monday's tweets were retweets from Mike Pence's own twitter account, all of which marked the day in some shape or form.
