WATCH: Psaki Refuses To Answer Why Biden Failed To Commemorate D-Day On 77th AnniversaryThe Daily Wire

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to answer during Monday’s press breifing why President Joe Biden failed to commemorate the 77th anniversary of D-Day over the weekend. She did claim, however, the event was close to Biden’s “heart.”

“Presidents Bush, Obama and Trump all commemorated D-Day anniversaries on D-Day, on the D-Day anniversary,” Fox News reporter Peter Doocy said. “Why didn’t President Biden?”

Psaki responded, “Well, I can tell you that certainly … his value for the role that, the men who served on D-Day and the memory of them, the families who have kept their memories alive over the course of years on this day is something the President has spoke to many, many times in the past on, it’s close to his heart, and I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s more we would have to say on it.”

History.com notes of D-Day:

During World War II (1939-1945), the Battle of Normandy, which lasted from June 1944 to August 1944, resulted in the Allied liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany’s control. Codenamed Operation Overlord, the battle began on June 6, 1944, also known as D-Day, when some 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France’s Normandy region. The invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history and required extensive planning. Prior to D-Day, the Allies conducted a large-scale deception campaign designed to mislead the Germans about the intended invasion target. By late August 1944, all of northern France had been liberated, and by the following spring the Allies had defeated the Germans. The Normandy landings have been called the beginning of the end of war in Europe.

Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis commemorated D-Day on Sunday, writing on Twitter: “We are free from the threat of fascism because of the sacrifice made by countless, courageous young men 77 years ago. On D-Day, the Greatest Generation cemented their legacy into the fabric of this country as the protectors of liberty and freedom for America and the world.”
