Obama certainly can’t cut his vacation short for the executed NYPD officers funerals. Too much golf to be played.
Obama’s rhetoric is responsible for creating our culture where tensions between so many citizens and the police are so high things like this happen. As former NYC Mayor Rudy Guliana said, “We’ve had four months of propaganda, starting with the president, that everybody should hate the police.”
From the Weekly Standard:
Vice President Joe Biden will attend the funeral of a slain NYPD officer, the White House announced.
“The President has asked Vice President Biden to attend the service for Officer Rafael Ramos and is grateful that the Vice President and Dr. Jill Biden will be traveling to New York City to attend the service on Saturday. Additional details will be forthcoming from the Vice President’s office,” said spokesman Eric Schultz.
The president was on the golf course, in Hawaii, when the announcement was made. He’s scheduled to return to Washington on January 4.
