This week MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell decided it was appropriate to use President George H.W. Bush’s funeral to criticize President Trump’s posture during funeral.
”Watching that service, the president sitting with his arms like this,” Mitchell begins to demonstrate by crossing her arms and frowning, “When everyone else was looking forward. There was one handshake with the Obamas sitting closest to him but no other interchanges we could see.”
It is pretty distasteful that leftists use funerals to attack the President any way they can. This was supposed to be a funeral of remembering and honoring the passing of George H.W. Bush. The left can never help themselves when attacking the President. It seems whenever something happens in this country.. the left can’t ever just put politics to the side and be respectful. If a conservative host was doing this, we would never hear the end of it.
The media, especially most of the hosts at MSNBC have all used George W.H. Bush’s death as an opportunity to attack President Donald Trump. Instead of accurately retelling Bush’s legacy, which had its flaws like every other person that has been in office, they put him on a pedestal to viciously attack President Trump. Let’s not forget the funeral of John McCain and how they used that stage to attack Trump. A real media would never use funerals to further their political statements. It’s quite tragic to see this happening. We sure didn’t see the media personalities criticizing Barack Obama during his time in office. In the eyes of a MSNBC Host, a republican can do nothing right.
MSNBC should focus on reporting the truth instead of bizarre segments using a funeral to constantly criticize President Trump’s body language. Who knew sitting normally at a funeral would cause such a freak out at MSNBC.

Four presidents were seated together Wednesday at the funeral of former President George H.W. Bush. The fifth living president, George W. Bush, sat across the aisle with his family.
When President Trump arrived, he and former President Barack Obama shook hands. Trump also shook hands with former First Lady Michelle Obama. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not attempt to shake the Trump’s hand but as Melania was entering the pew, she reached out to former President Bill Clinton, who smiled and shook her hand.
Throughout the rest of the ceremony, the Trumps simply sat quietly and followed along the program. Continue Reading
