Video: Obama jokes about Scalia’s death, audience laughs

Obama-laughs about scalias deathWhile speaking to the National Governor’s Association on Monday, President Barack Obama cracked a joke about the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.  Although Obama didn’t mention Scalia by name, his intent was clear.

“Some of you may be in the final year of your term, working as hard as you can to get as much done as possible for the folks you represent, fixing roads, educating our children, helping people retrain, appointing judges, the usual stuff,” he said, smiling and snickering about it afterward.

The crowd erupted with laughter.  The video of Obama’s “joke” can be seen below, courtesy of Infowars:
