How Trump's golf habits predicted his presidential ones

 

 

Where the heck was he? The Dems should get a warrant for his cell phone records to pinpoint his exact location during the funeral.

Trump did not attend John Lewis' funeral. He also skipped Lewis' memorial service in Washington, DC.

Former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton each delivered eulogies for Lewis at his funeral.

Here are 4 other major funerals Trump has missed while president:  Rep. Elijah Cummings, Rep. John Dingell, Sen. John McCain and former First Lady Barbara Bush.

 Former President Barack Obama appeared to take a jab at President Donald Trump at the funeral service of the late Rep. John Lewis in Atlanta on Thursday.

"Even as we sit here, there are those in power who are doing their darndest to discourage people from voting," Obama said during his eulogy,   "John Lewis devoted his time on this earth fighting these very attacks on democracy."

Obama received a standing ovation from the crowd.

 

 

Would the 'nation' be less appalled if President Trump did attend? Doubtful

I believe they would be equally appalled. Those that like Trump would still like him. Those that dislike him would retain their dislike for him.

Trump would get flak from his racist base if he attended. Trump does not want to  give the impression that any Black life matters.

Herman Cain,74, went to Trump's  rally in Tulsa, caught the virus and died.

Will Trump attend HIS funeral?

 

 

Once again, ZERO PROOF...you disingenuous bastard...

Tell me XO.   Who was more disrespectful.   Trump for not attending the funeral or Obama attending and then attacking Trump during his eulogy?

Lewis would have been entirely down with Obama attacking Trump at his funeral. If you don't know this, you are an idiot.

Trump could not attend without losing some of his base.

Had Trump been President way back then, he would have sent Goons to accompany the  Alabama State Police at that bridge and you know it.

Trump would have been down with Bull Conners and all he stood for.

Had nothing to do with his base. Had he attended he would have been attacked for turning the event into a campaign speech. Not one liberal alive honestly wanted him to attend. Not one. His absence wasn't missed and should rather be applauded. Democrats got to plant a 17 term congressman without a single noteworthy piece of legislation attached to him. Trump got to avoid any accusations of making the funeral about himself. Everybody won with his decision. 

 

Trump will obviously attend Cains funeral. Will Obama?

Bush is a globalist, therefore  anti  American 

The fact he gave a speech for a man who refused to attend his inauguration and called him an illegitimate president is unfortunate. 

 

Fact is no one wanted Trump to attend. Attacking him for not doing so is disingenuous. He should definitely attend Ruth Bader Ginsbergs funeral. 😁

He didn't attend Bush's inauguration, calling him a fake president. The fact Bush eulogized the man gave me even less respect for Bush.

so we can say that Lewis refused to attend a white man's inauguration unless he was a Democrat...

Lewis refused to attend Trump's inauguration...

 

And then....

 

In January 2001, Lewis boycotted the inauguration of George W. Bush by staying in his Atlanta district. He did not attend the swearing-in because he did not believe Bush was the true elected president.[87]

 

 

In October 2008, Lewis issued a statement criticizing the campaign of John McCain and Sarah Palin and accusing them of "sowing the seeds of hatred and division" in a way that brought to mind the late Gov. George Wallace and "another destructive period" in American political history. McCain said he was "saddened" by the criticism from "a man I've always admired," and called on Obama to repudiate Lewis's statement. Obama responded to the statement, saying that he "does not believe that John McCain or his policy criticism is in any way comparable to George Wallace or his segregationist policies

"Trump's presence at civil rights leaders funeral an affront"

They would have had a meltdown either way.

 

Trump is "disrespectful" for not going, but would have been "showboating" if he had gone.
