Trump to attend George H.W. Bush funeral

President Donald Trump will attend George H. W. Bush’s funeral in Washington, D.C., the White House announced on Saturday.

Trump, who has a strained relationship with the Bush family and did not attend Barbara Bush’s funeral, is scheduled to talk to George W. Bush by phone on Saturday to offer his condolences, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. She said that the president and First Lady Melania Trump were notified of Bush’s death last night.

“A state funeral is being arranged with all of the accompanying support and honors,” Sanders said, adding that Trump will designate this Wednesday as a National Day Of Mourning.

The funeral is scheduled to take place at the National Cathedral.

I dunno why there was any doubt about this in the first place.

I don't like the idea however, of the Obamas going to it; it's way above their class.

6. You know Trump is doing a great job

When the best Lefty can do is complain that his helicopter pilot cancelled a flight in the rain to a cemetery

Doesn't matter. Except if it's your funeral. Then you can invite or exclude anyone you want.


As far as it being above the Obamas' class, I'm pretty sure they're not going to embarrass themselves or our country by acting like it's all about them. I honestly hope the Bushes haven't asked tRump to say a few words. Or maybe I do. Could be good for some cringe-worthy entertainment.
