Because he wants the story downplayed and because he doesn’t give a shit. He just got a raft of flack for using our deceased soldiers coming into Dover as props for a photo op, so he probably figured going for another dead soldier photo op was a bad idea, and if he can’t get a photo op out of it, why bother to go?
All he’s doing right now is hustling the death care bill. Nothing else matters. Ahmanutjob could drop a nuke on NYC right now and he wouldn’t stop hustling his bill.
You are probably right. It all depends on what Axeldork has in mind for his 24/7 muzzie candidate.
