    Who would of thought it?

    President Barack Obama is not scheduled to attend any of the funerals for the victims of the San Bernardino terror attack nine days ago, Breitbart News has learned. He has yet to visit the town in the wake of the deadliest terror attack since 9/11.

    The White House did not return a request for comment about the president’s schedule.

    It is unknown to the public whether he will attend any funerals, the first of which took place on Thursday for victim Yvette Velasco. Two were scheduled for Friday morning, which Obama appears to be missing as well.

    Obama delivered the eulogy at the memorial service this year for the victims of a racist mass murder at a church in Charleston, South Carolina. Obama used his remarks to push for gun control: “For too long, we’ve been blind to the unique mayhem that gun violence inflicts upon this nation,” he preached.

    The White House also sent three representatives to the funeral of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old who robbed a store in Ferguson and later fought with police officer Darren Wilson. Massive Black Lives Matter protests had resulted from accusations that Wilson shot Brown in cold blood. Brown’s alleged gesture of surrender–“Hands up, don’t shoot”–was repeated by protesters, elected officials and celebrities. Wilson was later exonerated of killing Brown, and the “Hands up, don’t shoot” claim was found to be false.

    Obama did not attend, nor did he send a representative to the funeral of slain “American Snyper” Chris Kyle, Breitbart News reported. Neither were representatives sent to the funeral of journalist James Foley, who was beheaded by the so-called Islamic State (also known as ISIS, ISIL, or Daesh).

    The White House sent “Cabinet Secretary Broderick Johnson, chair of the Obama administration’s My Brother’s Keeper Task Force; Heather Foster, an adviser in the White House Office of Public Engagement; and Elias Alcantara from the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs” to the funeral of Freddie Gray. Gray had died a week after injuries sustained during an encounter with police in Baltimore.

    Even on the third anniversary of the death of Trayvon Martin–the man that Obama famously said looked like the son he never had–Obama met with Martin’s parents at the White House. “Today, on the third anniversary of Trayvon Martin’s death, showing all of our kids, all of them, every single day, that their lives matter, that’s part of our task,” he said according to Time.

    The President will go on holiday in Hawaii in just seven days, but questions have surfaced over whether the Commander-in-Chief will visit San Bernardino, California on his way.

    Not all of the funerals for victims of the San Bernardino terror attacks are being made public. Some are strictly private events.

    Obama recognized in his address to the nation last Sunday that the attacks were terror related, after days of cautioning that they could turn out to be “workplace violence.”

    It is unclear if Obama will visit or send any representatives to the remaining funerals of the 14 victims killed in the attacks.

    Yea, I agree... Better he stay home... But isn't it strange that he's not showing up there? He was pretty quick to show up in Roseberg.

    Guess this time it's different... Jihadist, Islamic extremist, Muslim terrorists committed this crime... Hits a little too close to home for him perhaps?

    Besides what could he possiblely have to say? More gun control, California is the Demoncrats model state... Seen how that all worked out didn't we...

    And sales in California skyrocketed after the massacre... What's that tell you???

    The less we see and hear from him the better. I view this as telling that the their veneer thin narrative is starting to show through and the American public is seeing the ugly, rotten substrate below.

    Fellow citizens: please keep waking from the political charade induced coma you have been in for the last 7+ years.

    Stupid or sly?

    He's deceitful, we know that for sure.... His hope and change has turned into desperation and despair...

    What surprises me is that he would not attend the funerals of his two fellow Muslims who were killed by the "Crusader" police department.

    Maybe, Obama can invite the mother or brother of the attacker to the White House in a sign of solidarity with his fellow Muslim brothers.

    If it does not benefit the democrap party politically, can not be used to divide the citizens or have something to do with playing golf the great one wants nothing to do with it.

    Why would he say anything the shooters were on his side. He might go to their funerals...

    Oh come on.

    You all know that when a politician, left, right, middle, shows up at such funerals it has nothing to do with sympathy or empathy for the families or the victims, it is all a show to gain constituent support and power for the politician. :rolleyes:

    Same for the flyovers of disaster areas/etc. and other shows of supposed concerns.

    I just went through a funeral for a close family member. Personally, if someone isn't a close friend or family member, I don't want some stranger showing up - especially some politician/et. al. with their entourage and cameras and so on. It isn't about them, and I would very much appreciate it if they just stayed away at that point and let my family grieve in private without making it a show all about them and their agenda. :mad:

    Two reasons why he isn't going:

    1) It would confirm his lack of testicular fortitude in fighting against the actual enemies of our nation.

    2) He has a tee time to make; right after a bloviating speech about how the weather is going to kill us before ISIS does.

    Yeah, I'm sure all of those families in San Bernardino are really concerned with how the climate is and how it may affect their futures. Least Ohole could do is send each family a solar panel to show how much he cares.
