    Obama snubs Scalia funeral: President will NOT attend requiem for conservative Supreme Court justice

    President Barack Obama will not attend Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's funeral on Saturday, the White House says.
    It was not immediately clear why the president won't go to the formal funeral.

    At the suggestion that the president might go to a private ceremony on Friday, his spokesman said the White House would provide more details at a later time.

    After learning of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's death, Obama continued to play golf for several hours before speaking to the nation from the press filing center in Rancho Mirage while not wearing a tie, his rumpled shirt collar open under a suit jacket.

    It's a private funeral. Would the family even WANT him to attend?

    As a President you should be above that stuff and not come across as a dickhead on a message board. But this President has showed over and over that he is a very small man who can't deal with people who don't share his views.

    And where did Scalia ever say he hated Obama or even anything talking bad about Obama as a person. He disagreed with his politics. Obama is a very small man who comes across no different then whining assholes on the internet. A President should be better and bigger then that. This President isn't.

    So Obama won't go to this funeral, but will send reps to the funeral of black criminals and then demonize white cops?

    Fuck this piece of shit. It can't be February 2017 soon enough.

    He'd be groping the Scalia womenfolk. Can't send Biden anywhere.

    I'm not sure I want our POTUS going to a known target location with all that's going on in the world right now.

    Right. Maybe he and Biden had a more cordial relationship. Joe-show = head of state coverage.

    But, for those who will hate Obama for anything, please continue with the sport-outrage.

    The State function on Friday at the Court is more official and he is doing that. Funeral is more of a purely religious thing and more personal to the family so probably better that he is not there.

    In the old school Greek/Italian way, we either go to the wake or the funeral but not both unless it is a family member. Like Tony and Pauly did.
