Whirlibird, you missed the thing that makes it all better (read the rest of this sentence with EXTREME sarcasm, of course): Mr. Mayor checked the schedule and plans to be back in time for the funeral – what’s the problem?!?
He skipped the swearing in of 500+ new cops. I hope somebody bars him from the funeral.
He claims the visit was a relatively short notice decision – but he ended up being a keynote speaker for the Marxists. Uh, yeah, right, Mr. Mayor. Like that decision was also a last minute decision? And this guy wants to be President….
