Because presidents don't historically attend former first ladies' funerals, the current first lady does?

2016 US Presidential Election Thread Part VI

Who cares about historically? Why does he have an obligation, at all? Ronald Reagan died four years before Obama was even president. Nancy Reagan had already left the national scope. How many times do you think Obama has even met Nancy Reagan? Potentially a whopping zero times. But seriously. Maybe two or three times.

You're not politically obliged to attend the funeral of someone you don't know. Was H.W. there? Would it matter?

Yeah it's just a Faux News trumped up controversy. They know their viewers won't research a damn thing and it's another reason to hate the black president.

Correct.

There's nothing more to say.

HRC has apologized on Twitter. for some reason, i had assumed that these were prepared remarks or a speech she gave. politicians misspeak. it happens.

but still. Reagan spoke more about UFOs than HIV. way to piss off your base.

this is how bad it was:

To be fair, politicians offering an unequivocal apology isn't that common. Good on her.

Well, Tuesday is probably going to be the end of the line for the Bernie express, barring Clinton being denied the nomination at the convention due to health and/or legal issues.

Then again, you can't count the guy out especially after the polls have consistently underrated his support by large margins...as I said earlier, if he can even remotely keep it close in terms of delegates on Tuesday night, it's going to be a loooong drawn out primary as the rest of the calendar is heaven for Bernie fans.

You mean to tell me that encouraging violence at your rallies leads to violence at your rallies?



Fuck Donald Trump.

Hoping to see more confirmed rumours suggesting that Trump = Sanders soon. Keep the hot takes rolling in, liberals.
