Adam Goodman joined Eric Bolling on The O’Reilly Factor to discuss President Obama’s priorities concerning Justice Scalia’s upcoming funeral.
President Obama has decided to skip the funeral of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, but he will soon become the first sitting U.S. president to visit Cuba in nearly a century. Eric analyzed the president’s priorities with Republican Adam Goodman and Democrat Scott Levenson. “The president’s choice makes it very clear where he stands,” Goodman said. “Justice Scalia was an intellectual icon on the court and other justices looked to him for inspiration. But the president has decided that it’s not good enough to show up for his funeral but it’s okay to visit a repressive regime.” But Levenson defended President Obama’s decisions. “To judge how other people mourn is a bit shameful. The president is showing respect – he will go Friday night when Justice Scalia is lying in repose, and he’s sending the vice president to the funeral. This should not be used for partisan sniping.”
