Obama Will Not Attend Scalia Funeral

8

President Barack Obama will not attend Justice Antonin Scalia’s funeral on Shabbos, according to the White House.

Instead, he and first lady Michelle Obama will go to the Supreme Court on Erev Shabbos to “pay their respects” as the justice lies in repose.

Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill will, however, attend the funeral.

When Cheif Justice William Rehnquist died in 2005, George W. Bush attended the funeral and eulogized him.

No official reason has been given for Obama’s planned absence. Read more at Politico.

  1. Don’t worry Mr. President, we all understand. I’m sure that everyone has had the experience of having non-refundable reservations at a luxury golf course.

  2. President Obama is playing partisan politics. Disgusting! If it was Ruth Ginsburg, HE WOULD DEFINITELY BE THERE! It is Obama himself that is causing the rift/racial divide in this Country. Pheh!
