The Obama administration announced this weekend that it will be sending not one, but three, officials to attend the funeral of Michael Brown on Monday in Ferguson.
Only a low-level delegation was sent to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s funeral last year.
More recently, President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden skipped the funeral of Major General Harold Greene, the 2-star general killed in Afghanistan on Aug. 5. The president played golf during the funeral for General Greene.
Also, neither close friends nor family will be delivering the eulogy for Michael Brown in Ferguson; it will be Rev. Al Sharpton.
