Obama seemed to have ‘conveniently’ missed making a statement on the anniversary of D-Day this year — even though he had no problem releasing statements about Ramadan and the passing of Muhammad Ali.
Check out the statements that were released from June 4 to June 6:
The only time Obama mentioned D-Day at all yesterday was in a casual reference to the day when he posted a video on his Facebook page about a soldier that inspires him. It can be seen below:
Seven years ago today, while honoring the heroes of D-Day, I met a young Army Ranger, Cory Remsburg. Eight months later, I walked into a hospital room at Bethesda to visit a grievously wounded soldier. It was Cory, and he had been nearly killed by a massive roadside bomb in Afghanistan. Over the years, I’ve met up with Cory as he’s worked hard to recover, and I’ve shared his incredible story with you.
Now, seven years after we first met, Cory recently visited me in the Oval Office – and for the first time since the explosion, Cory is walking short distances unassisted. He was determined to walk into the Oval Office on his own.
Take a look at Cory’s visit, and you’ll see why, of all the people I’ve met as President, no one has inspired me more than Cory. He never quits. He never gives up. And he’s always pushing the limits, reminding us of our solemn obligation to all our veterans and wounded warriors who’ve risked their lives for us all.
