Me too.

I don't want to see Michelle's scowling face at the funeral of a REAL First Lady.

The funeral event will be difficult to plan and execute. Rain is forecast, so they will have large tents on standby.

Often when it rains in SoCal this time of year, it is a violent storm. High winds etc. That was the case day before yesterday.

But when the storm has passed, skies turn clear and beautiful, with a chill edge.

First Lady Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton are scheduled to attend Nancy Reagan's private funeral Friday at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley.

President Obama, however, won't attend and will instead be at the South by Southwest tech conference in Austin, Texas, according to several media outlets.

I don't really have a problem with this at all, and I can't stand the sight of Obama or the sound of his robotic voice.
Trump has created a cult and looks more and more like Hitler every day.

===============================

His simply standing there at the funeral service would certainly detract from both Ronald's and Nancy's memory.

Better that he won't be there.

It's right that Michelle Obama attends the funeral.  I don't even care if she's dragged kicking and screaming.  She has responsibilities as the current FLOTUS and this is one of them.

That is correct. High offices are, in part, ceremonial and traditional. Why else does the UK keep their monarchy ??

Mr. & Mrs. Reagan were the best, and Simi Valley is a great setting and facility.

Weather forecast is for rain, however. They reportedly have huge tents at the ready, should they be needed. We can use every drop, and this storm series is cold, than previously during the season. That means snowpack in the High Sierras.

There were two problems Obama simply could not avoid so he could go to the funeral.  She was white and she was a republican. :whistle:

Nothing unusual about this. It's pretty much expected behavior for a current First Lady to attend a funeral for a former First Lady.

Maybe so but that isn't the main issue. That her husband won't is.
