President Barack Obama degraded the funeral of Nelson Mandela by flirting and taking "selfie" photographs, Washington Times columnist Charles Hurt says.
"As disappointing and sad as it is that we have a president who would sort of degrade the office and degrade the country in this way, the thing to me that is even more mind-boggling is what kind of a person goes to a funeral and hams it up and thinks somehow they're the star of the funeral," Hurt told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.
"It just blows my mind. I can't even wrap my head around the kind of unseriousness and arrogance that is required for an adult to do something like that," Hurt said Wednesday.
