Social media shares disgust, but no surprise over Obama’s excuse for skipping Nancy Reagan’s funeral

The White House announced Tuesday that President Obama will not be attending the funeral for first lady Nancy Reagan.

A surprise? Hardly. Shameful? Yes, according to many who see this as another show of disrespect from Obama who has opted out of several memorial services that one would expect to see a president attending.

Instead of attending the former first lady’s funeral service on Friday, he is expected to speak in Austin, Texas, at the South by Southwest conference.

Social media weighed in on his priorities.
