Charles Krauthammer just stated in 3 words the REAL reason why Obama doesn’t want to attend Justice Scalia’s funeral.
“That is such obvious nonsense, that it shows they aren’t even trying. […] He doesn’t care! He doesn’t want to spend a Saturday in a pew listening to speeches about how great a jurist Scalia was when [he] believes sincerely that everything Scalia argued for was wrong and harmful to the Republic.”
“If there is a political reason, it is because he’s going to be nominating a justice who will want to undo the 30-year legacy of ‘Scaliaism.’ And he doesn’t particularly want a photo-op of those speeches in praise of Scalia.”
