Special memorial held for Barbara Bush

Special memorial held for Barbara Bush

Current first lady Melania Trump also is in the photo along with former first ladies Laura Bush, Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama.

President Jimmy Carter was out of the country and Rosalynn Carter was ill, but four former presidents and four first ladies who gathered at the funeral of Barbara Bush took a few minutes to pose for an iconic photo.

Mike Barnicle called attention to a viral photo of George H.W. Bush, the Obamas, the Clintons, and Melania Trump, and said that we ought to "frame that picture in our minds".

Ironically, the lovely gold-lined china set, commissioned as part of a 200th anniversary celebration of the White House, was approved by President Trump's 2016 presidential rival Hillary Clinton back in 2000.

He then drew laughs with a nod to Ms Bush's famously sharp tongue: "She called her style a benevolent dictatorship, but honestly, it wasn't all that benevolent".

Many were surprised that Melania Trump was there and appeared so warm.

Kourtney could not just see her and her sisters' style in the DASH brand anymore and had figured a major update was required. I love you more than life itself, you don't even understand how much I love and adore you and I appreciate you.

Melania looks at the funeral with Obama much happier than dinner with trump on the occasion of his inauguration. "Which we often don't see her doing in public".

The wife of former President George H.W. Bush was laid to rest at her husband's presidential library in Houston on Saturday.

Some 1,500 mourners, including governors, senators and former USA presidents, gathered at a televised but invitation-only service at the church to pay tribute to the matriarch of one of the country's most prominent political dynasties, who died on Tuesday at age 92.

About 1,500 people attended a private funeral on Saturday in Houston for the wife of former President George H.W. Bush.

George and Barbara Bush are indeed reminders of a kinder, gentler Republican Party that has been eclipsed by the rise of the Trump.

"Find someone who smiles at you the way Melania Trump smiles at Barack Obama", another Twitter user, Grace, posted to her account.
