When a Supreme Court Justice passes away, the president of the United State is expected to attend his or her funeral; but Obama didn’t even make it to Justice Scalia’s funeral.
Obama and his first lady, Michelle Obama, did, however, stand in front of the justice’s casket for a “moment of silence.”
Here’s how Michelle spent that moment of silence:
The First Lady’s utter lack of respect for the late Supreme Court Justice is hard to comprehend. It is extremely disturbing to see the First Family treat a deceased Supreme Court Justice with such disrespect. However, though, it is not that surprising.
Say what you will about George W. Bush, but at least he was a respectful and dignified president. When Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist passed away, he went to his funeral and even gave a eulogy.
SHARE if you can’t wait for a new president!
