Barack Obama Sends More White House Officials to Michael Brown’s Funeral than Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s Funeral … Add Maj. Gen. Harold Greene & photo-journalist James Foley to the List
Sometimes a headline just says it all … What else would One expect from a Community Agitator?
Fox News reports, that the Obama administration sent more White House officials to the Michael Brown funeral than they did for former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Hmm, Michael Brown, Margaret Thatcher … Michael Brown, Margaret Thatcher. Which one was more historic and important to America, let alone the world? It is just head-shaking the contempt this individual has and over-riding political agenda
The White House sent three officials to attend Monday’s funeral for Michael Brown in St. Louis — three more than it sent for former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s funeral last year.
The administration’s handling of the Brown funeral already has started to raise comparisons between the two.
For Monday’s funeral, the White House sent two officials with the White House Office of Public Engagement as well as Broderick Johnson, chairman of the My Brother’s Keeper Task Force.
No White House officials, though, were part of the presidential delegation sent last year to Thatcher’s funeral. For that, the White House sent former secretaries of State George Schultz and James Baker III — as well as the charge d’affaires to the U.K. and the former U.S. ambassador.
At the time, the nature of the delegation stirred controversy in the British media as tabloids claimed British officials felt snubbed that high-level American officials — including President Obama himself — were not attending.
How many do you think they sent to Maj. Gen. Harold Greene, the highest-ranking U.S. military officer killed in combat since the Vietnam War? Hint, Obama, the so-called Commander in Chief was not there, he was too busy with his vacation. How many did Obama send to the funeral of murdered American photo-journalist James Foley?
President Barack Obama sent no White House representative to the memorial Mass held yesterday in Rochester, New Hampshire, for James Foley, the American journalist beheaded by the Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) terrorists.
President Obama, however, did send three White House aides to Monday’s funeral for Michael Brown, an 18-year-old African American fatally shot in an encounter with a white police officer in Ferguson, Mo.
