With the passing of Obama’s aunt earlier this month, a funeral was held and the one family member who was conspicuously not present, was none other than Obama himself.
He was not dealing with a crisis like Ukraine, or even local issues like the increase in violence in his hometown of Chicago. No, Obama was out golfing.
The New York Times’ Jason Horowitz reports:
Mr. Obama helped pay funeral expenses and sent a condolence note, Ms. Onyango’s family members said, but the president did not attend, as he was golfing.
Obama’s “auntie,” Zeituni Onyango made headlines in 2008 when Obama was forced to return her campaign contribution because she was in the country illegally.
