Hillary Clinton attended the funeral of George H.W. Bush along with several other political figures. Amid the grief, there was also some tension.


Former first lady Hillary sat next to her husband Bill Clinton. On their right sat Michelle and Barack Obama. To their left was former President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn Carter.

Bush Jr greeted all the officials in the front row of the Washington National Cathedral. This also included the current President Donald Trump and his wife Melania.

The group was dutifully present at the memorial service for the 41st president Bush who died last Friday at the age of 94.

Despite their respect in putting differences aside to be altogether at the occasion, the media noticed one thing.

Melania shook the hands of Bill and the Obamas, not Hillary. Meanwhile, Donald didn't shake the hands of either Clinton, only the Obamas.


It could be due to the distance between them. However, Hillary's resolute forward stare hinted at the rift that still remains between her and the Trumps.

The former presidential candidate took a bitter loss following her run in 2016. Furthermore, this was her first meetup with Donald since his inauguration.

In comparison, Vice President Mike Pence, who arrived before the Trumps, did shake hands with the Clintons.


The Trump administration have continuously voiced their opposition to the Clinton's and Obama's rule since he came into power.

Likewise, the former rulers have also expressed their displeasure with the way Trump has been running things since he came into power.

During the awkward incident, all were silent for the service. Yet a heartbroken Bush Jr could not hold back tears during the memorial.

The former president appeared shaken. In his tribute, he described Bush Sr as "the best father a son or daughter could have.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell also gave an emotive tribute which drew Bush Jr to tears as he stood under the Capitol Dome.

Of course, Bush Sr.'s service dog Sully was also present for the send-off of his former companion. The dog sat near the coffin throughout the service looking on solemnly.
