For the second time in 24 hours former Trump UN Ambassador Nikki Haley is under fire for a Memorial Day holiday tweet.
On Sunday Haley was one of the leaders of the attack on Vice President Kamala Harris, who was torn apart by Republicans and Fox News for tweeting four words on Saturday: “Enjoy the long weekend.”
Many on the right claimed outrage, despite it being only Saturday and not Memorial Day. Haley declared Vice President Harris, who one day earlier had spoken at the U.S. Naval Academy’s graduation and commissioning ceremony, to be “Unprofessional and unfit.”
Unprofessional and unfit. https://t.co/XuMo7W5i6d

But Monday morning, Memorial Day, as President Joe Biden and Vice President Harris were at Arlington honoring America’s service members who made the ultimate sacrifice Haley, a former state and federal government official, wasn’t laying a wreath or attending any ceremony honoring America’s fallen soldiers. She was – as are many on this long holiday weekend – enjoying spending time with family, especially as the pandemic is slowing down and social distancing protocols are being lifted.
It did not go well for the former South Carolina GOP governor, who was accused of hypocrisy.
So this Memorial Day is about you spending time with your kids smiling at the beach? Funny, I thought it was about my fallen brothers and sisters. Enjoy your weekend at the beach. Very unprofessional and unfit. https://t.co/bsjYrIKqAm

Blessings of family & spending time with your little one???
How about thanking those who gave ALL.
You point fingers but you don’t even understand the meaning of Memorial Day.
Stop “enjoying your long weekend” – you’re not fit. https://t.co/YdRx0VGbUx

Unprofessional and unfit! Spending time with family during the long weekend was discouraged, I thought. 🤔

This is what you’re doing on #MemorialDay2021
While @VP, who you called “unprofessional and unfit”
Gave a commencement speech at Annapolis and paid respects at John McCain’s grave
You are entitled to family time
But stuff your hypocrisy
Especially when you worked for Trump https://t.co/Pq6NcuusQJ

I don’t see you honoring soldiers… This looks like you’re honoring yourself. So unprofessional, you’re unfit to to acknowledge this day https://t.co/YHoLcHcwmu

It’s wonderful that you have a chance to spend extra time with your family.
Maybe it’s not such a bad thing to “enjoy the long weekend”. You owe VP an apology.
