Justice Scalia on the State of the Union: “I resent being called upon to give it dignity.”

Scalia has at times veered into direct criticism of the Obama administration, including a shot from the Supreme Court bench last year at the president’s executive order on immigration.

But Scalia’s disdain for the State of the Union speech isn’t about partisanship — he hasn’t attended one since 1997.

Scalia has called the event a “juvenile spectacle” and said, “I resent being called upon to give it dignity.”
