The funeral of former President George H.W. Bush brought five presidents were together on Wednesday.
As the casket of H.W. Bush was welcomed to the National Cathedral for a state funeral in Washington D.C., both President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama shook hands. Trump also shook hands with former first lady Michelle Obama. Trump and the Obamas have sparred publicly for years, but the contentious relationship between the presidents seemed to warm for just a moment in the front row of the National Cathedral.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton were seated further down the pew. While Trump and Hillary did not even attempt to shake hands at the ceremony, their significant others did. As Melania was entering the pew, she reached out to Bill Clinton who smiled and shook her hand.
As you can see in the video, Hillary refused to extend her hand to greet our First Lady, only nodding her head with a very bitter look on her face. How graceful.
What an image. An awkward moment for sure, as Hillary Clinton nodded toward Melania Trump. Some cold stares, but also remarkable that an event can bring this group of people together, at least physically. pic.twitter.com/PY1vOb55pZ
