Hi there,

You trust Democracy Now! to bring you the news stories and global headlines you won't find anywhere else.

This allows us to maintain the editorial independence you rely on—but it also means we need your help. If everyone seeing this gave just $4 a month, it would more than cover our expenses for the entire year—and today a donor will DOUBLE your first month. Please do your part. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else. Thank you so much!

George H. W. Bush Hospitalized One Day After Barbara Bush’s Funeral

HeadlineApr 24, 2018

And George H. W. Bush has been hospitalized and is in a Houston intensive care unit with sepsis, after an infection spread into his bloodstream. A spokesperson for the 93-year-old former president said Bush is “responding to treatments and appears to be recovering.” Bush’s hospitalization came one day after he attended a funeral for his wife, former first lady Barbara Bush. Saturday’s funeral was also attended by other former presidents and first ladies: George W. and Laura Bush, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Barack and Michelle Obama. First lady Melania Trump also joined, but President Trump remained at his golf resort in Mar-a-Lago, where the White House says he watched the funeral on television.
