Trump: Obama Would Have Gone to Scalia’s Funeral If It Was Held in a Mosque
Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump questioned Saturday whether President Obama would have attended Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s funeral Mass “if it were held in a mosque.”
I wonder if President Obama would have attended the funeral of Justice Scalia if it were held in a Mosque? Very sad that he did not go!

Trump added that it was “very sad” that Obama skipped the event.
Of course this made headlines in the liberal press.
Trump doubled down Monday night on Hannity.
But Trump clarified his remarks saying it was a joke.
