BS

I heard on the news about the his “holiday” house he and his family were staying at.

I believe it was called a multi-million dollar house....

I feel the memorial service was planned to coincide with a nice, relaxing vacation.

Just my 2 cents...

The old girl is dead but still provides an excuse for Bammie to duck the press whilst visiting the islands.

Someone tap him on the shoulder and tell him Hawaii is one of the 57 states. I can’t bear to do it myself.

But first he ransacked her home, in search of a damning old piece of paper from Kenya.

What a guy!

He could probably have gotten in nine holes in the time it took to have his picture taken and get back to the limo...

They held the service at a church and he and his grandmother were/are atheists?

Showing how well the AP writes a story according to a staff pool report in “The Honolulu Advertiser” her ashes were scattered from Lanai Lookout after the memorial service. You can read the article here, but be warned that the report covers his activities for the day complete with saccharin sweetness as the presstitutes see it!

I don’t think there was family harmony between him & his whitey granny. Pics sure don’t show it.

Her 10th floor apartment was cleaned out by his sister before the end of the week after she died. They worked so quickly that her body was removed from the apartment by 3:30 am November 3rd and her urn of ashes was delivered back to the apartment the following morning!

Following the ceremony, Obama drove to the Lanai Lookout. He and about 20 members of his family climbed over a stone wall and down onto rocky ledges to scatter Dunham’s ashes.

RIP Grammy

When his grandmother was mobile she did attend a church not far from her S. Beretania St apartment.

And how do we know they were her ashes and not the ashes of the birth certificate that lists his citizenship as Indonesian?

Did the rest of his family attend or did his wife and kids spend the day shopping at the beach? Last two times he spent time with her the rest of the family skipped out. The question is why especially if they missed the memorial service.

Aides said Obama’s half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, and her husband, Konrad Ng, also were present.

Good question for which we will never have an answer! She died late the night of the 2nd, the body was removed by 3:30 am Monday morning, the urn of ashes was returned Tuesday morning and an apartment lived in for 40 years was cleaned out by Nov. 6th. Sure would have been nice to see the dumpster the trash was put in!

Wonder if he took off his shirt and profiled for the camera, at the funeral?

She did attend services at a local church while she was mobile but it was never mentioned if Stanley did as well. Once she was no longer mobile she probably missed services.

How nice! Beloved Leader took time off from the beach to say bye bye to Grams, even if she was just a typical white person. Talk about racial healing.

His half sister and brother in law attended but any mention of Michelle and the girls is absent from both stories!

I refer to them as presstitutes which is fitting! Because of the abject fawning I didn’t notice the article did mention Michelle and the girls. Notice the minute by minute schedule? It must have irked the presstitutes no end they were kept in a van and missed the “all important shots” (sarcasm intended)

Technically he has been an orphan since November 7, 1995 and I would feel sorry for him but I just can’t seem to reach! What? Do I look like a Sympathy card?

You gotta know the right people, that's all. There is this super duper investment manager in New York named Bernie something or other (I could look him up for ya) who can make you rich in no time.
