As America mourns the loss of conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, President Barack Obama just disgraced his memory in a big way.
Days after giving a pathetic, clumsy announcement about his death… The White House has announced he will completely skip Scalia’s funeral.
President Barack Obama will not attend Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s funeral on Saturday, the White House said Wednesday. Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden will attend.
Obama and first lady Michelle Obama instead will go to the Supreme Court on Friday “to pay their respects to Justice Scalia” while the justice lies in repose in the Great Hall, press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters Wednesday.
Compare that to 2005, when Chief Justice William Rehnquist passed away. Not only did President George W. Bush attend… he gave a eulogy!
You can be certain that if one of the more liberal Justices passed away, the funeral would turn into a four-hour long campaign commercial for Obama and the Democratic Party.
Apparently, Obama is too busy trying to find dirty tricks to play on Senate Republicans, trying to force them to force on whoever his nominee may be.
President Obama’s snubbing of Justice Scalia lacks class. He is an embarrassing President, and 7 years of him in the White House have been too long.
