That’s the kind of man Bush really was.
Hillary Clinton refuse to so much as even look at President Donald Trump as he entered George H.W. Bush’s funeral service on Wednesday and sat near her and Bill Clinton.
Trump and First Lady Melania Trump each shook hands with former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama. Bill Clinton at least shook Melania’s hand and shot a glance at Trump.
Clinton, however, remained looking forward, not even acknowledging the sitting president’s presence at the historical funeral service.

The Trumps, Obamas, and Clintons were all seated together at the funeral service.
But the day was not about Hillary Clinton or politics, it was about honoring George H.W. Bush’s life and legacy.
Revealing Bush’s codename, Timberwolf, the Secret Service revealed a powerful story about what happened when he learned the 2-year-old son of the agents on his detail was diagnosed with leukemia.
“Everyone’s #TuesdayThoughts are on President Bush & we wanted to share a memory,” the Secret Service wrote in a tweet. “In ’13, Timberwolf learned that the 2-year-old son of an agent on his detail was diagnosed with leukemia & the detail was going to shave their heads.
