What kind of person takes a selfie at a
funeral euology? What kind of President takes a selfie there? What kind of President takes a selfie at the state funeral euology of a revered international figure?
If this was a kid, taking a selfie in the pews at his grandfather's funeral, what would you think? I know what I'd think: I'd think a totally ego-driven, spoiled, narcissistic little princeling was mocking the dead. And if I were his parent, I'd take him out of the pew and out of the service and teach him some sense.
Call me old-fashioned, but I think this is repugnant.
As with so much else Obama has done lately, the mind reels.
NOTE I rather like "President Selfie." I think it might have legs; it skewers the narcissism.
UPDATE Dana Milbank points out the DC is "Selfie City." Exactly.
UPDATE I don't care who's holding the camera (it looks like they both are, to me). They both ought to have been dragged out of the service by grown-ups and given a talking to they'll remember.
UPDATE I'm wrong on the funeral. It's a eulogy. So what?
