    Obama’s Orlando funeral dilemma

    Obama’s Orlando funeral dilemma

    By Thomas Lifson

    What will President Obama do about the memorial service that is certain to follow the awful carnage in Orlando this morning? He has a clear pattern, but this incident does not fit in very well.

    In Charleston, SC, the decision was easy. The victims were black and the perpetrator was a white racist. Two check marks, so a presidential visit was assured.

    In San Bernardino, the perpetrators were Islamic, and the victims were of multiple ethnicities, including protected classes. A mixed signal, but because the perps were of a group that must be shielded from any public perception of collective responsibility, a presidential visit was out of the question.

    But now in Orlando, we have a Muslim perp, but the victims are another highly favored group that collectively is a bedrock constituency of the Democrats: gays.

    What’s Obama to do?

    If he snubs the memorial service, he risks offending gays. But if he goes, he risks highlighting Islamic hostility to gays, as well as the threat of global jihad.

    If I had to bet, I’d say he plays golf.

    President Barack Obama is set to travel to Orlando on Thursday, the White House says.

    Obama to travel to Orlando on Thursday

    Washington (CNN)President Barack Obama on Thursday will pay his respects in Orlando to the victims of the country's worst shooting massacre.

    White House press secretary Josh Earnest said in a written statement late Monday Obama would travel to the Florida city to "stand in solidarity with the community as they embark on their recovery."

    Earnest didn't provide any details about Obama's visit, but said additional information would be forthcoming before the trip.

    Speaking in the Oval Office Monday, Obama described the attack as a result of "home grown extremism," but said the attacker wasn't being directed by any particular terror organization.

    He described the massacre as a "devastating attack on all Americans."

    "It is one that is particularly painful for the people of Orlando, but I think we all recognize that this could have happened anywhere in this country," Obama said. "And we feel enormous solidarity and grief on behalf of the families that have been affected."

    It was the second time Obama addressed cameras about the Orlando killings, which took place overnight Sunday at a gay night club. He said during the day afterward that the crime -- where 49 people were killed and more than 50 others injured -- was being investigated as a terror attack.

    Obama is expected to address the shooting again Tuesday following a meeting of his National Security Council at the Treasury Department in Washington.

    The meeting is meant to focus on cutting off funding for ISIS.

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.
