As the funerals of the two slain NYPD officers grow near and New York in utter turmoil with nearly all law enforcement literally turning their back on Mayor Bill de Blasio, Obama has decided his presence is not needed and is sending Vice President Joe Biden in his stead.
Spokesman Eric Shultz said, “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.”
This, of course, comes while Obama is vacationing happily in sunny Hawaii. According to the Weekly Standard, Obama was on the golf course as the above announcement was made.
