Greta: We deserve to know why Obama isn’t going to Scalia’s funeral

Greta Van Susteren isn’t letting President Obama off the hook as easily as the lap-dog press.

In her “Off the Record” commentary segment on Wednesday, the Fox News host called for Obama to be held accountable for his decision to skip the funeral of late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on Saturday.

“The American people deserve to know why our president won’t represent the nation at a Supreme Court Justice’s funeral,” she said.

Instead, he’s sending Vice President Biden to the funeral while he and first lady Michelle Obama pay respects at the Supreme Court building on Friday, leading one reporter to ask if he has golf plans on Saturday.

“If there’s a great reason, I’m going to back the president up,” Van Susteren said. “But no reason? Well, that’s not right.”

“So Mr. President, the ball is in your court,” she said. “Why aren’t you going to the funeral?”

“For the sake of our nation – and decency,” Van Susteren said, and we all hope it’s not because of political differences.

    Will the family confirm Obama was requested not to attend the funeral ?

      The family likely has been threatened by WH minions to toe the democrat line, or else another one of them will be made an example.

    Sorry Greta but don’t hold your breath…We can’t get ANYONE, not even a REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED Congress to hold this idiot accountable for blatantly Unconstitutional and Illegal actions. Do you REALLY think anybody will hold him accountable for missing a funeral? Bravo to the reporter who had the jewels enough to ask if obama was going to be on the golf course. THAT is journalism…however that person has already, more then likely, seen his last day in the WH press corps.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if the reporter gets slapped with an IRS audit now.

    Let me start by saying I am no fan of this guy that runs our Nation. However a funeral as a political event? No. Funerals by their nature are Personal events. That means Family and Friends. Obviously that means no obama.

  4. Bob says:

    Maybe he just can’t go to a funeral of a man that maybe he had something to do with causeing his death

  5. Jane Graham says:

    Lacks character….the kind Scalia lived by!

  6. Libs R Loons says:

    Justice Scalia was a great man….but by LGBT standards Obama’s not even a “man”.

  7. The DC DICTATOR must get in 18 Holes of GOOOOOOOOF…..So a Funeral can’t get in the way of more pressing items on his Agenda…

    What ever Ovomitt says he needs to do on Sat. will not be able to be verified for sure! Just 1 more disgusting act of the democraps fearless leader!!!!

    I think being a muslim it would go against his cult to enter a Catholic church. Especially the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. Plus he doesn’t want to take a chance of getting to close to the Holy water, he may disintegrate if he gets splashed.
