President Obama will send three White House officials Monday to attend the funeral of 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was shot by police earlier this month.

The White House announced that secretary of the cabinet and My Brother’s Keeper Task Force Chairman, Broderick Johnson, will travel to Ferguson, Mo., for the funeral, according to the Associated Press.

In addition, the deputy director of the White House Office of Public Engagement, Marlon Marshall, and an adviser for the office, Heather Foster will also attend.

The White House has been selective in sending representatives to funerals — recall that only a low-level delegation was sent to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s service last year. More recently, President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden skipped the funeral of Major General Harold Greene, the 2-star general killed in Afghanistan on Aug. 5.

The move didn’t go unnoticed by Twitter users:

This tweet sums it up:

This article was updated to clarify that President Obama and Vice President Biden did not attend Gen. Greene’s funeral. Sec. of Defense Chuck Hagel was in attendance.

    How can something be appalling when it is expected? This IS the American government today. Their priorities are not exactly where they should be. So appalling? No. Disgraceful? Absolutely.

    White House sent four to Thatcher’s funeral, all high-ranking people she’d worked with. They sent Sec’y of Defence Chuck Hegel and General Ray Odierno to Greene’s funeral. You guys are accepted disrespectful lies from your authoritarian leaderships and you are passing them on, making you liars, as well. Don’t you get tired of being treated as a stupid mob?

    I don, t think many people would argue that bush was an awful president, after all it lead the American people to vote blindly for their first marxist president a man that spent 20 years worshiping at a white hate church both his domestic and foreign policys are an absolute nightmare he has purged and demoralized the greatest military ever conceived at a time the world is in flames.He has aided and abetted enemys of the U.S he supported the muslim brotherhood in Egypt (he gave the brotherhood 52 billion dollars in aid and weapons) He has created more tension and distrust among the races then any president in U.S history.He used the IRS to terrorize his political opponent’s. He has used the department of injustice as his own police force.My god I watched this man time after time give the most passionate speeches i have ever seen when ripping his opponents ( republicans ) but when Americans get their heads chopped off he is emotionless cold as ice, I could go on for hours but liberals don, t care this man is an enemy of the state when he speaks I can, t even look at him.I was a liberal until Obama showed up.He will go down as one of the best campaigners of all time, he reminds me alot of a German leader that rised from the ranks as a nobody to the most powerful leader in the world.And the whole world knows he is a loser that has weakened america and taken her to her lowest depths
