From The Daily Caller:
President Barack Obama will not attend Nancy Reagan’s funeral this Friday, and will instead be in Austin, Texas for the annual South by Southwest festival.
It must be a pretty important festival. Right? Probably something related to national security? Maybe heads of state or negotiating with Iran or something to miss such an event as the Nancy Reagan funeral. No, it’s this.
The South by Southwest festival includes film, music, and technology conferences. On Friday, there will be film festival screenings, including for the new Peewee Herman movie, and SXSW comedy.
