From Right Wing News: You may recall last week that we reported that Obama sent three–count ’em, THREE–White House officials to Baltimore resident Freddie Gray’s funeral. By contrast, this week Obama sent no one to the funeral of the New York police officer brutally shot in the face.
We noted on April 27 that Obama sent three White House officials to Freddie Gray’s funeral.
But this week New York Police officer Brian Moore was laid to rest. How many White House officials attended? You guessed it. None.
But let’s take a look at some of the other notable funerals during Obama’s regime.
Here are the funerals that Obama didn’t bother attending or sending any officials to:
- British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher
- Polish President Lech Kaczynski
- Navy SEAL Sniper Chris Kyle
- Murdered NY officer Brian Moore
Now here are some of the funerals that Obama attended or sent White House representatives to:
- Saudi King Abdullah
- Florida criminal Trayvon Martin
- Missouri criminal Michael Brown
- Maryland criminal Freddie Gray
Maybe there is a pattern here?
Addendum: I had misremembered about the Polish President’s funeral. Yes, Obama skipped it, but he did send our US ambassador to the ceremony. Just to set the record straight.
