Chris Wallace: 'A Chill' Descended On Front Row Upon Trump Arrival At Bush Funeral

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace said he was "struck" by the reception of President Trump and first lady Melania Trump upon their arrival at the funeral for George H.W. Bush on Wednesday, saying "a chill had descended" on the front row that included the Clintons, Obamas and Carters.

“I have to say I was struck when President Trump and Melania Trump came to the front row, that it was as if a chill had descended on that front row," Wallace said on Fox's "America's Newsroom" during live coverage of the Bush state funeral at Washington National Cathedral.

"You had seen a lot of chatty talk between the Clintons and the Obamas, the Carters. But when Donald Trump sat down, the greeting that he was given by Barack Obama and Michelle Obama was about as cool as it could have been.”

Trump and the first lady greeted the Obamas and shook hands when sitting down next to them in the front row of the service for Bush, who passed away last Friday at the age of 94. There was no greeting between the Trumps and Clintons, who sat farther down the row.

Hillary Clinton, Trump's rival during the 2016 presidential election, turned when Melania Trump entered the area but did not appear to turn to acknowledge President Trump's arrival. Her husband, former President Clinton, and former President Carter turned their direction when Trump greeted the Obamas.

2. The fact that the roof at the Cathedral held is a miracle itself, indeed.

9. lol.

I personally joke about bursting into flames every time I enter a church. I have to weight the risk vs reward. Ironically enough, every polling place I’ve ever voted at has been a church.

I haven’t combusted yet either.

Winning!

13. And I got the flames. lol.

What’s funny is that Mom went to Christian college. She studied to be a librarian... Then she got into occult / which craft.

When I grew up we had an Ouija board and Fate Magazine in the House.
Now she says I’m going to hell for questioning her new found religios
Dogma.

Lol. People.

8. Trump is a lion that will devour you in any setting

His opposition knows this, therefore the testicles recede into the body for safety and the mood changes quickly.

17. trump is a constant and everlasting humiliation to this country.

He earned that reaction from the ex-presidents and their spouses and the eulogists, fair and square.

16. Even faux civility has left the political arena with far too many.

As a nation we have become far too polarized, and the chill is just merely a sign of the deep divide between the parties.
