CNN's Jake Tapper Calls Out Democratic Party Over Photo It Used to Celebrate Memorial Day

News

"... this is not what Memorial Day Weekend is about."

Jake Tapper, CNN anchor and chief Washington correspondent, took exception Saturday to a tweet the Democratic Party posted in honor of Memorial Day:

The photo of President Barack Obama downing an ice cream cone in St. Paul, Minnesota, last June was accompanied by the message, "Happy Memorial Day Weekend, everyone!"

Tapper, a big supporter of U.S. soldiers, wasn't about to let the Democrats' imagery misfire go unnoticed:

"Respectfully, @TheDemocrats, this is not what Memorial Day Weekend is about," he tweeted in response.

Many other Twitter users posted similar reactions:
