The White House has announced Donald Trump will not attend the funeral of former First Lady Barbara Bush citing a desire to “avoid disruptions” in regard to the president’s security detail and “out of respect for the Bush Family and friends.”
First Lady Melania Trump will attend the memorial service for Barbara Bush this Saturday representing the First Family.
Reps for former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have indicated they will attend the memorial service as well as former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama.
Barbara Bush, wife of George H.W. Bush, the 41st president of the United States, passed away on Tuesday at the age of 92.
You’ll recall when Obama didn’t attend the funeral of former First Lady Nancy Reagan, right-wing pundits couldn’t wait to criticize.
