George H.W. Bush Remembered at Washington National Cathedral

HeadlineDec 06, 2018

In Washington, D.C., former presidents and top dignitaries gathered Wednesday for the funeral of George Herbert Walker Bush in the Washington National Cathedral. The main eulogy was delivered by Bush’s son, George W. Bush, who called his father a “diplomat of unmatched skill, a commander-in-chief of formidable accomplishment and a gentleman.” President Trump and first lady Melania Trump attended the funeral, sitting in the front row. Trump briefly shook hands with President Obama—whose citizenship Trump previously questioned while leading the “birther” conspiracy movement. Trump did not shake hands with Hillary Clinton, who looked straight ahead and barely acknowledged the first family during the ceremony.
