President Obama will not be attending Muhammad Ali’s funeral on Friday in Louisville because the service conflicts with daughter Malia’s high school graduation from Sidwell Friends in Washington, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported Wednesday morning. Obama — who has spoken to Ali’s wife, Lonnie, according to family spokesman Bob Gunnell — will send top adviser Valerie Jarrett to read a statement.
