Obama REFUSED To Attend Nancy Reagan’s Funeral But Even Mr. T Made It, Other Notables Included…
The variety of backgrounds of the attendees at Nancy Reagan's funeral speak to how much the Reagan's were loved and admired universally. Over 1000 guests were in attendance at Reagan's funeral with the memorial service being held at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley.
There was one person glaringly absent from the ceremony with Michelle Obama awkwardly in her husband's place.
From Conservative Post:
80’s action star, Mr. T (of ‘The A-Team’), was one of many celebrity attendees at Former First Lady Nancy Reagan’s funeral.
He and Ronald Reagan became friends during the ‘Just Say No’ campaign.
Other attendees included former Reagan administration official Ed Meese, Larry King, Mike Love of the Beach Boys, television writer and producer Norman Lear and Steve Ford, son of President Gerald Ford.
Also on hand are actress Bo Derek, actor Tom Selleck and singer Johnny Mathis. Mathis became friends with Nancy Reagan and often visited her home in the Bel Air area of Los Angeles, where she died Sunday at age 94.
Mathis says he and the former first lady enjoyed singing together.
President Obama was not present and instead was at SXSW in Austin.
While not losing focus to remember Nancy Reagan as an incredible First Lady it's hard to not politicize and call out Obama's complete snub.
