Unbelievable photo released of Obama after spending less than 2 min at Scalia’s wake

For a man “not interested in photo ops,” President Barack Obama sure finds himself in plenty.

Raising more than a few eyebrows for not planning to attend Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s funeral on Saturday — an unprecedented act — Obama is seen carrying a “huge binder of materials on possible SCOTUS nominees,” as noted by CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller.

(Keep in mind that binders full of names are only a problem in America when being toted by a Republican — see Mitt Romney.)

From the beginning, one thing Obama has been able to count on, other than his own audacity, is the support of the national media, minus Fox News.

And that support manifested itself Friday in the well-planned photo.

The gist being that Obama will be too busy “plowing through” potential nominees over the weekend to think about attending the funeral of a man who dedicated 30 years of his life to public service.

Knoller posted two images of the president and his binder, coming and going — which is appropriate considering that when it comes to being conned by the media, the American people get it coming and going.

To be fair, Obama did carve out two minutes from his busy schedule on Friday to pay his respects to Scalia, who was lying in repose inside the Supreme Court.

Based on the reaction on social media, it’s a safe bet that most Americans aren’t buying what Obama’s media allies are selling … and think he should attend the funeral.

    Just when you think he couldn’t make you hate him more than you already do he one ups you!
    I guess I learned something. Never underestimate the amount of contempt tyrants can sow for themselves.

  2. well when I go to an event like that I usually take time to offer my sympathy to the family and/or others there and/or shake their hand I did not see him talk to anybody surely arrangements could have been made to at least shake hands with his wife and/or other family members present and say a few words to them.

    Did the odor of sulfur leave the rotunda when the Obamas left? i hope so.

    obama’s constant drama queen antics clearly shows what a small immature mind he has……

    He acts more like a black drama queen school girl……..

    what an embarrassment to his daughters……and, the Nation…..

    Obama is a lame duck POTUS right now.

    I’m truly surprised the Obama’s attended any part of theses proceedings.
    The golden rule of the Left is that if you disagree even in the slightest with their ideologies, you will be swiftly, mercilessly, and endlessly punished for your intolerable insolence.
    This must be what he considers compromise, or his version of getting the final word.

    that binder is full of vacation brochures

    And remember watching Obama and Michele watch a military funeral and a flag was getting folded, Moochele was heard saying ” All that just to fold a flag?”
    My fear is that he’s going to nominate Lorretta Lynch for the new justice. The Repubs have already confirmed her for the AG spot. It would be checkmate for Obama if they say no. They would be called racist and sexist.
