It could have been intentional.

Intentional would have been even more demeaning.

Unless demeaning them and changing the past was the point.

Demeaning them... YES... but they cannot change the past.

The past occurred many years ago and is over and done with. It can and will be remembered as long as those in office officially recognize it. But even if it is no longer recognized by current or future administrations... it still happened and cannot change or be changed.

FWIW

History books can be written to remove history, at which point the younger generation will never learn it.

Bush, Obama and Trump all remembered the day in their speeches. Did her forget or did he not care?

He probably just forgot. But then I wonder what else he forgets, and how long until either we end up with President Harris, or his handlers essentially do a "Weekend at Bernie's" with him to keep up the illusion that he's still with us.

His staff also know that his memory is not as sharp, so they should have written it into the script on the teleprompter for him to read. So they are more so at fault than he himself.

The kids who are responsible for that probably were never taught that in history class, it was likely never celebrated in their politically correct woke indoctrination center school, and it wasn't on the standardized tests that schools have been teaching to for the past 30 years or so. Thus they had no clue, and probably just didn't google for historical events that happened so it came and went unnoticed.

Given the present trajectory of education in some jurisdictions, it wouldn't surprise me that 30 years after most of us are dead and buried, more than 51% of the population will have forgotten that December 25th was a day we celebrated, while July 4th will be more or less deleted during our remaining lifetimes.

Just like in "1984" - although they will probably start "Hate Week" as everything from the past is purged and sent down the memory hole to be forgotten, as monuments are removed and history re-written to fit the Party line.

As they are adults now... I don't think they should be referred to as kids today. But you are right. They were probably never taught that when they were kids in school. And it's a total shame that our education system has eroded to such a point that they do a disservice to the children being indoctrinated as well as a disservice to our country.

That is a very likely possibility unless we do something about it NOW! There's not much time left to return our education system back into the learning establishment it used to be.

Sort of reminds me about this:

How they attempt to divide us... Just so we're clear...

I never cared that you were Gay or Transexual, UNTIL you started SHOVING it down my throat.

I never cared what color you were, UNTIL you started blaming me for your personal problems.

I never cared about your political affiliation, UNTIL you started condemning me for mine.

I never cared where you were born, UNTIL you wanted to erase my history and blame my ancestors for your life failures.

I never even cared if your beliefs were different than mine, UNTIL you said my beliefs were wrong.

Now I care... my patience and tolerance are gone! And I'm not alone in feeling like this.

Just know that there are hundreds of millions of us who feel the same way.

And with that said, "we hundreds of millions" need to perform a major overhaul of our entire education system. The quickest way to do that is to prove that current education system is not doing what it's supposed to so fire ALL of them. Yep... each and every one from the school, city, county, state... and also remove the unions from our education system as well. It was the union's strangle hold that helped force in much of what we have in our schools today.

Once that's done, we need to re-hire educators (teachers, principals, city, county and state officials) with priority being on those whom have served in our military. They were taught the proper history of our country and thus are better qualified than current school teachers or board members. Those who served 4 or more years of active duty in any one of our military branches should be given first pick. All people chosen to work in these schools regardless of their duty (including janitors, cooks and others) should undergo Hermitage Foundation's 6-hour course on our Constitution, our Bill of Rights, the Federalist Papers, what a Republic, a Democracy, a Monarchy and an Oligarchy are and many other basic necessities which ALL Americans were taught back when I went to school, but which you don't find taught in schools any more today. After taking that 6 hour course, they must take a test and pass it with a score of 85 or better before they will be offered a job in our education system. And yes, even janitors, cooks and other non teaching personnel should also be required to pass the test.

Without a heritage to keep... every generation starts over!

FWIW

Edited to add: [And don't just limit that 6 hour course to our education system... ensure that every member of Congress, every person who works in the White House and all of our judges including the Supreme court appointed judges also be required to watch the 6 hour video. But for Congress and Judges... the score should be set at 90% to be able to pass and keep their jobs. For the Supreme Court, it should be 95% or above!!!]

We already have handlers running him. He doesn’t write his own words or plan anything.  He’s so obviously not all there.

and future archaeologists will wonder about what made the civilization collapse so utterly, especially when most of the record of its demise was censored and de-platformed during the final years of its decline and fall because they were all on fakebook and twitter.
