From your first link:
I still think he should attend instead of playing golf, if that is true, after all the man was a sitting supreme court justice.

It's not all that uncommon for Presidents to not attend the funerals of Supreme Court justices. Bush didn't attend Byron White's funeral, and Clinton didn't attend the funerals for Harry Blackmun, Lewis F. Powell, or Thurgood Marshall.

Should they attend? That's up for debate. But the point is, it's not unprecedented.
