Have you ever had to be somewhere with a group of people you couldn’t stand? Of course you have. But did you have to do it with a million plus people watching, parsing your every facial expression?
Well, that was the case for the living presidents and their first ladies, who all attended George H.W. Bush’s funeral in Washington, D.C. today.
While most of the living presidents club of George Bush, Barack Obama, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton seem friendly at events when they have to be together, none of them like President Trump or seem to have much of a relationship with Melania Trump.
Yet all of them had to sit together at Bush’s funeral today and social media enjoyed it to the fullest. It was real-life reality TV drama.
Here are the funniest reactions to the most awkward pairing of people since maybe Aretha Franklin’s funeral.
First, the Obamas showed grace and the Clintons paid the Trumps dust.
