Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s nearly 30 years on the bench was not enough to get President Obama out of bed for a weekend funeral.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest confirmed Wednesday that Obama will not be attending Scalia’s funeral this Saturday at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Vice President Joe Biden will be in attendance instead.

Earnest told reporters that Obama will view Scalia’s body on Friday while it lies in repose in the Great Hall of the Supreme Court building. The 79-year-old justice died last Saturday during a visit to a private residence near the Cibolo Creek Ranch near Shafter, Texas.
“The president will pay his respects at the Supreme Court on Friday and he’ll be joined with the first lady when he does that,” Earnest said, NBC News reported.
Earnest skirted a question on Obama’s potential golf plans by discussing Scalia’s years of service.
