In the “actions speak louder than words” rubric, the White House has been showing its priorities by sending or not sending representatives to funerals.
When Margaret Thatcher died, the White House sent no representatives to her state funeral.
When James Foley was beheaded by ISIS, the White House sent no representatives to his funeral.
When Michael Brown died in Ferguson, MO, the White House sent three representatives to his funeral. It also sent Attorney General Eric Holder to Ferguson.
