    President Trump and First Lady Melania are very nice people. Very nice.

    The Bushies, Dana Perino and her ilk have been nothing but a bunch of National Pains in the Azz. Trying to subvert the President that We the People put in office at every opportunity.

    I saw in one of the news shows today the running video clips of the media trashing Trump over and over while talking about Bush 41. This was just one example. Disgusting media behavior. Trully disrespectful to both Bush 41 and President Trump.

      @Aeyrie: ^^^^^^^^^This! 🙂

      Present Trump and FLOTUS know – they have it all and yet despite all that they both show the dignity not many have.

      I would like to know why they lie rather than tell the truth because he died on the 14 November and not the date officially stated.

        Hearing that, Cali! Go back and look again at FLOTUS’ expression as she stands at her husband’s side in the rotunda. If her face isn’t as hard as I have ever seen it and her eyes aren’t glittering with barely contained anger and disgust then I can’t “read” people… and I have a rep for being able to accurately read people. As for your question, timing is everything. Most people don’t know, what most of us here do. As a whole they are not yet ready to learn the truth. Optics are very important to bringing the people to a place where they can accept it. Saying it right now would be perceived as a very unseemly time to tell them. My gramma used to say “It will all come out in the wash.” We need to continue to be patient for a while longer. There will be much disclosed when Mr. Huber testifies about what he has learned in the last yearyjr about the Clinton Foundation and the FISA documents are disclosed. Those two events will start the avalanche rolling.

    I am glad to see that president bush 41 had way more class and love of country than McCain. Im glad he wanted our president to participate, even despite their differences.I know that the primaries had to be hard on him and his wife. You never want to hear bad stuff said about your kids even if its true.

      John McCain was a bitter and self-serving man. I see no comparison because the failed presidential candidate never got over what he thought he deserved….therefore making the spectacle of his own ‘state’ funeral.

      There is no comparison here because President’s honor and attend dead President’s funerals. Period. Whatever Pres. 41 and President 45 thought of each other, they both rise above it to honor the Office of the Presidency and this is what class acts do.

      Above all, what I love to remember is President Trump was very much a part of honoring one of the greatest Americans and Godly men ever…..the Rev. Graham, when he was honored in Washington…..and even his funeral in NC. That trumps all funerals ever.

      • That Graham funeral was breathtaking. PDJT & Melania were pure grace and elegance there. The video of the eulogies is worth multiple watches.

        PDJT is respecting the traditions of America here- not endorsing Bush 41s acts.

        God bless President Trump and America.

          Absolutely, Massive. A million watches, indeed.

          And that’s what President Trump does best….loves America and it’s tradition.

          I thought VP Pence’s eulogy yesterday was beautiful, especially what he shared about his pride and his aviator son landing on P41 namesake aircraft carrier.

          Also, what he and P41 shared as serving as VP’s to President’s who were ‘Washington outsiders who came in to shake things up…..and restore our military”. Outstanding.

          GHW Bush had a very strong view of the office of the Presidency. He respected it. He would have wanted the sitting President to be at the funeral—without question.

        I hear you. Gatewaypundit has headline about unlike McCain Family, the Bushes don’t want to trash Trump at funeral. Nice. But not one came out after McCain funeral saying how terrible it was. Cowards and users.

          I know W had the smirk on his face at McCain’s fest but this is a whole different ballgame with Presidents and funerals for Ex Presidents. Songbird will be remembered for many things. Most importantly, that the bitter evil fool was never President.

        • WEll they trashed him well and good after JEb was beaten. I remember being absolutely floored to see Bush Jr. and Laura perfectly happy to come out of their self-imposed silence out of deference to the office of president that they had so ‘admirably’ observed during the Obamination era.

          And now to see those two best friends with the Bush family told me all that I needed to know about why things went so awry.

          Elitists can be decent and kind and gentle…with their own and on the surface to the peasant class.

          They can even shed a tear for the hardship of those they treat to the soft bigotry of low expectations.

          But when all is said and done, their protection and their profit is their priority.

    A rule of life is that we can’t bring ourselves up by bringing others down. People who do that are suffering from their own deep insecurities. And so it is with most liberals and even some conservatives.

    Had to log in to CTH to hear that President Trump and First Lady Melania visited 41 – had no idea! (I don’t watch the cable news idiots – got sick of them long ago) It’s not being reported on our local news – all we keep hearing about is how Pelosi was there and Moochie cancelled her book tour to show up. NOTHING about the First Family visiting him. So disgusted, and we are in IDAHO!

    • Moochelle sold an AMAZINGLY rapid 2 million copies of her book. The friends they have could easily purchase in the 100s of thousands just to show that there might be momentum for a presidential run.

      BEst selling author is what her husband’s fantasy ‘autobiography’ tagged himself with early in his campaign in order to increase momentum.

    In the back and forth on both sides if this issue: “The Bush family won’t invite the Trumps” and “The Trumps won’t attend if invited”; The right thing prevailed on both sides. They were invited. and they attended and showed the proper respect.

    Donald and Melania Trump are precisely what is required of a president and first lady for our great Republic. They’ve set the bar very high. I’m proud of them and perhaps we should all — and believe me, I’m talking about me most of all — take a lesson from them on how to be compassionate and gracious at a time when it’s needed. God bless them!

      I heard on the radio that the Bushes were housed in the Blair House, and the Trump’s had a visit with them. Then Melania took Mrs. Bush to see the WH Christmas decorations.

      • I WILL say that I enjoyed TREMENDOUSLY Laura Bush’s white house Christmas decorations and unlike Moochelle (who the first year had ornaments with the faces of communists (like Mao) on the tree), Melania is following beautifully in her footsteps.

        I do not think however that Melania will be the disappointment that Laura has been after leaving teh White House.

    OK, I understand why the politicians are paying their respects. HW honorably served our country between his Naval service and the many positions he held before being elected to the VP and President positions. Many of us were alienated from him with the “read my lips” in how he got rolled by the Dems in Congress on spending and taxes. We were also somewhat enamored by Perot with his Pie Chart informercials (they were great). HW phoned in his re-election efforts and deserved to lose. Unfortunately we got Clinton due to the split tickets.

    What I don’t understand is WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE walking through the Rotunda now? This man became irrelevant 26 years ago. Also, when he got into office in 89, according to Mark Levin last night, he asked for the resignation of EVERY SINGLE Reagan appointee across the government.

    While I am glad our nation is being dignified in sending this man off to his after life, I have been unable to watch ANYTHING on TV or listen on the radio regarding this. My lack of interest is complete.

    I’ll be glad when the funeral is over, then we can get the buckets, mops, snow shovels and front loaders and start cleaning up the huge piles of hypocrisy, mendacity and outright BS pouring from the mouths of politicians praising Bush I. Where the hell was their praise when he was VP and president?
    I particularly liked Clinton praising Bush’s dedication to his wife and family…cleanup on aisle 42, better bring a LARGE shovel…
