President Trump Honors 41

The Bush family had already invited President Trump to the funeral of former President George H.W. Bush before the 41st president passed away.

The family told the president they didn’t want to reenact the funeral of Senator John McCain, who couldn’t reconcile his disdain for President Trump even in death.

McCain announced (before his death), the Commander-in-Chief wouldn’t be welcome at his funeral — a petty final gesture which actually told you more about the Arizona senator than the president.

However, Herbert Walker Bush was cut from a different cloth. He was void of sanctimonious bluster and ego, which in all probability cost him his reelection as president.

H.W. was a humble man who only wanted to serve America and it was without a doubt in America’s interest that President Trump be accorded the respect to attend a former president’s funeral.

President Trump was at the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina when he heard the news and immediately ordered the Presidential plane “Air Force One” be available to fly the late president’s casket from Texas back to Washington.

“Air Force One will be taking myself and a group of our people back to Washington. It will then be reset and it will be sent to Houston to pick up the casket of President Bush and it will be sent back to Washington.”

Adding it is “a special tribute that he deserves very much.”

The president also graciously invited the Bush family to stay at the Blair House, just across the street from the White House. The residence is usually reserved for heads of states visiting the nation’s capital.

The President tweeted that he and the First Lady would visit the Bush family to pay their respects on Tuesday:

“Looking forward to being with the wonderful Bush family at Blair House today. The former First Lady will be coming over to the White House this morning to be given a tour of the Christmas decorations by Melania. The elegance & precision of the last two days have been remarkable!”

Early Wednesday morning the president tweeted out, “This is not a funeral; this is a day of celebration for a great man who has led a long and distinguished life. He will be missed!”

The funeral will be a rare opportunity with all 5-Presidents in attendance at the same time, President Trump and First Lady Melania, along with the Bush family, the Clintons, the Carters and the Obama’s will join other dignitaries at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC.

The eulogies will include speaker’s former Senator Alan Simpson of Wyoming, former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, and presidential historian and Bush biographer Jon Meacham, with Former President George W. Bush delivering the main eulogy, memorializing his father.

A significant moment that shouldn’t be ignored came from Jeb Bush in regards to President Trump’s magnanimous gesture in honoring his dad. The former rival for the Republican nomination for president expressed his appreciation to the president stating that Trump couldn’t have been nicer” to the family after his father’s death, thanking them for their “gracious hospitality.”

  1. So called President Trump looked at the crowd and thought they should be here for him instead of former President Bush. A lot of the crowd agreed they would rather it not be Bush in the coffin.
