Former Rep. Joe Walsh Criticizes Michelle Obama’s Plans to Attend Hadiya Pendleton’s Funeral

Former Tea Party darling Rep. Joe Walsh criticizes Michelle Obama for her plans to attend the funeral of Hadiya Pendleton, who was gunned down in Chicago January 29, one week after participating in President Obama’s inaugural events.

Joe Walsh tweeted, ‘Heartbroken’ Michelle Obama attending funeral of Hadiya Pendleton. I guess the other 553 murder victims didn’t break her heart.” He followed that up with a second tweet, “Most of the 553 Chicago murder victims in 2012 & 2013 were young black males. Is she attending this funeral to make a political point?”

Okay, his point is well taken but I have to ask, how many funerals of young black males in the Chicago area has he attended?
