It seems Obama really doesn’t think much of those who serve in our military. Saturday, May 17, is Armed Forces Day — a day created by Harry Truman in 1949 to celebrate all the branches of the military.
Obama, however, failed to mention Armed Forces Day on Twitter, Weasel Zippers noted. Instead, he chose to mark “International Day Against Homophobia Or Transphobia,” even using the #IDAHOT hashtag. He also marked the 60th anniversary of the Supreme Court Brown vs. Board of Education ruling.

Some embassies also marked the day by flying the gay pride flag:
