I guess not everyone can use their funeral to give 45 the middle finger.

I've been wondering if he would go. Hope he will be civil when he's with Obama.

I heard Trump's statement on Bush's death. Don't know who wrote it but it definitely wasn't Trumpo.

Maybe we'll see Melania smile/laugh again?

Bush and Clinton became close friends; the Obamas are also close to Bush Jr. I wonder how Trump will react when they both get to give a eulogy and he isn't invited to babble.

hopefully those are the last fed to him words we will hear from him on the subject. I don't think he will give a Eulogy...Jezz he would look at the crowd and think it was a rally in Michigan and........well you know what would happen.

George H.W. Bush confirmed to author Mark K. Updegrove in his book "The Last Republicans" that he voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton over Trump in 2016, saying he considered Trump to be a "blowhard."

Not much love lost there. Individual #1 is making some sort of eulogy today, along with George W Bush. You couldn't blame the Bush family for declining to have Trump speak at this funeral but OTOH they are sticklers for tradition so they might do it out of a sense of propriety.

On a relatred note, HW's Oval Office note to Clinton:

[www.washingtonpost.com]

Here is my guess at Individual #1's letter:

Dear "Insert wildy inappropriate nickname here":

Congratulations on "winning" the Rigged election. Here's a picture of the record crowds at my Inawguration. Your crowds were Smaller. Also hear is a map of my bigly in history landslide Electoral College. These are to remind you that I have been the Best precedent evar! My rain was trually unpresidented! You will probably Regret "winning" the election because there is no way you Could do as much as I did in three short Years!

Good luck, sucker!

P.S. I @#$%& Somewhere in the Ovul Office. Good luck finding it!

I wonder if he'll greet Jeb as "Low Energy". He apparently even had a nickname for Bush 41, "Bush Original".

Found this Wikipedia page tracking all of the nicknames.

I think the problem is that Bush is a dead President, not a dead Senator or a dead First Lady. The protocol probably does not allow for a former President's funeral to diss the current President.
