Hillary’s message wasn’t about America’s fallen. Instead, it all about her, critics said.
On social media, the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate was torched for what many called a “tone deaf” message.
“I’m missing our Chappaqua Memorial Day parade today while also feeling grateful to leaders like @NYGovCuomo for making responsible decisions to keep people safe,” she wrote on Twitter. “Wishing everyone a safe and healthy holiday. @BillClinton and I will be waving our flags at home.”

She used the day honoring veterans to gripe about not being able to parade around with her crooked cronies, her critics said.

Many also took issue with Hillary heaping praise on New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has been heavily scrutinized for his deadly decision to force coronavirus patients into nursing homes with at-risk seniors.
More than 5,000 New Yorkers have died.

Hillary said she was “grateful” to have “responsible” leaders like Cuomo keeping people safe.
“By responsible decisions, you of course mean killing thousands of elderly people by putting COVID patients in nursing homes with them… ” observed conservative writer Tim Young.

“Too bad he killed all those people in nursing homes,” one user named Ali wrote.
President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and second lady Karen Pence spent the day honoring America’s fallen at Arlington Memorial Cemetery.
The president then traveled to Fort McHenry in Baltimore to remember the lives lost during the battle that inspired The Star-Spangled Banner.
