Seriously, what an absolute scumbag.
President Obama said many nice words about Nancy Reagan when she passed away a few days ago. Now, it seems like nothing but puffery and a huge slap in the face to the entire Reagan family and also the conservative community. Why? Because Obama will be attending South By Southwest (SXSW).
For those of you that do not know what SXSW is, it is a technology and music festival held in Texas each year.
President Obama will skip former First Lady Nancy Reagan’s funeral on Friday. Instead, he will keep a scheduled appearance as a keynote speaker at the South by Southwest Interactive Festival, the White House said Tuesday.
First Lady Michelle Obama will represent the president at the funeral, which is being held at the Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California.
“The president will not attend,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters Tuesday. “The president is actually traveling in Texas on Friday.”
The SXSW Festival is an annual symposium for digital startups and emerging technologies that takes place each year in Austin, alongside film and music festivals.
This comes just several weeks after the president also skipped the funeral of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
This pretty much confirms a few things about our president: 1) He couldn’t care less about the conservative community. So much for reaching across the isle in all those campaign speeches back in ’08. 2) He is a lame duck trying to ride out his tenure as President while doing more fun things as opposed to leading a country. 3) He is the worst president in U.S. history.
I cannot believe the nerve of this man. He should be ashamed of himself.
