As cold and awkward it appeared on TV, Melania Trump was apparently well prepared for a face-off and the unwelcome stares at former President George H. W. Bush’s State Funeral at the National Cathedral that took place in Washington, DC.
Donald Trump and First Lady Melania looked very uncomfortable as they sat next to Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and Jimmy Carter and their wives — Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Rosalynn Carter.
While Hillary and Michelle hugged, talked, and even joked, Melania looked straight ahead and never uttered a word.
A source close to Melania said this: “Melania felt like she was getting major tension from both Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton at Bush’s funeral, but she did her best to remain stoic and not let the negative energy bother her.”
The insider added: “Melania felt uncomfortable with other women, but it is nothing new nothing she hasn’t already felt from them and dealt with in the past. The first lady was prepared for it and is now used to feeling like a bit of an outsider. Everyone on TV talked about how it was very cool between Trumps and Obamas, and Trump didn’t greet the Clintons. And Trump has slammed bot ex-presidents and Hilary so much, why would they be friendly to him and Melania.”
One person reacted to the icy gathering by saying: “He clearly did NOT want to be there, and then to have to sit by the Obamas whewww lawddd. What really got to me was the way he took off his coat and gave it to the soldier. He should have done that before he entered the Chapel, but nooo somehow he had to make something on this day about him. Ohhh and did U see the look on Dick Cheney’face?? If his eyes were fire rays, DT would have burned to the ground.”
Another commenter stated: “He was walking down the aisle and you could see him trying to get that piece of candy ready for our Queen Michelle. He was laser-focused on getting that candy in her hand. This is so sweet and funny at the same time.”

This follower commented on the fact that George W. Bush gave Michelle a candy and added: “Trump seemed very uncomfortable sitting with REAL PRESIDENTS. He sat and folded his arms and refused to follow along when others read Scripture and sang hymns. He definitely must have felt awkward listening to the praise of 41 and how it’s so OPPOSITE OF HIM. Very nice gesture by 41 who despite his grieving, thought to give to FLOTUS MICHELLE OBAMA the candy.”
Politics have a lot of intrigues.
