Melania Trump Seen Smiling With Barack Obama At Barbara Bush’s Funeral
Bush’s funeral was held at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Houston, Texas. Barack and Michelle Obama were in attendance along with Bill and Hillary Clinton. President Donald Trump did not attend “to avoid disruptions due to added security, and out of respect for the Bush family,” according to the White House.
Bush was not afraid to speak her mind about President Trump. She told CNN in 2016 that she “does not understand why people are for him.”
Melania Trump was seen with a smile on her face, something that hasn’t been seen in quite some time.
Wags on social media recognized the difference immediately.
At the funeral for Barbara Bush today, Melania Trump sat next to guess who…
After over a year in office, Melania has not smiled once in the presence of Donald Trump.
10 minutes with Obama’s, and look what happened!

This photo from Barbara Bush’s funeral speaks volumes. After everything Trump has done to Obama, Obama still treats Melania with kindness and respect. What a diplomat and gentleman. That’s a real President. No way Trump would be half this warm to Michelle. pic.twitter.com/7BSqplbdhT
