Melania was there alone! We hear that the reason why Donald Trump decided against attending Barbara Bush’s funeral was that he wanted to avoid the awkwardness between him and all of the people he usually badmouths on Twitter. It makes total sense!
One source explained that the current president did not want to come face to face with the Obamas or with the Clintons.
But no worries, it looked like Melania had a great time in their company and away from him.
‘Donald hates attending funerals at the best of times, so it is no surprise he made the decision to skip Barbara’s, as it would have been a political minefield to try and navigate. Donald’s butted heads with the majority of the high profile attendees at some point over the past couple of years, and continues to throw barbs at Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, on a regular basis—which would have made for some awkward interactions.’
‘It is not like it is standard protocol for the sitting president to attend a former first lady’s funeral – Obama did not go to Nancy Reagan’s, or Betty Ford’s – so Donald decided it was best all around to send Melania on her own, freeing him up to play some golf then get back to work again,’ the insider dished.
As you may be aware, Melania made headlines after photographs of her being all smiles while chatting with Barack were released.
Considering she is usually being made fun of for how quiet and expressionless she is, her smile and overall high spirits attracted the attention of many social media users.
Meanwhile, the Donald announced he would be watching Barbara Bush’s funeral from the Southern White House.
