VoteVets, a progressive coalition of 560,000 veterans and their families according to its Twitter bio, fired back at President Donald Trump for his “inappropriate” and “self-promotional” Memorial Day tweet, quipping #CadetBoneSpurs.
This is the most inappropriate #MemorialDay comment that a @POTUS has ever made. Self-promotion on a day to remember the fallen, and wishing those remembering their deceased loved ones a “happy” holiday is appalling. #CadetBoneSpurs pic.twitter.com/kRse4dnwiu
