KOMMONSENTSJANE – THE ART OF BULLYING.

A good case of bullying in this article.

Trump odd man out as presidents assemble for Bush funeral

The Associated Press — By CATHERINE LUCEY and ZEKE MILLER – Associated Press

As we all know the Associated Press is full of foreigners – not American patriots and their job is to come to America and stir Sh*t. Excuse the French.

This is about as good job of bullying that I have ever seen.

Their rhyme and reason job is to stir it – that is why they are here. Now read their sh*t. The two writers think they get to decide in their article as to who gets to be a part of this cabal since they are hauling it.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush reaches out to his brother, former President George W. Bush as they arrive to watch the casket of former President George H.W. Bush arrive for a State Funeral at the National Cathedral, Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018, in Washington.

WASHINGTON (AP) — There was no mistaking the odd man out.

(No – the cabal were the odd people out because America voted for the President. The Prez continues to try to bring people together.)

The Washington funeral service for former President George H.W. Bush served as a rare reunion of the remaining members of the presidents club, but the front-row banter among Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter and their spouses came to an end when President Donald Trump and wife Melania arrived.

The Wednesday encounter was a real-time illustration of the uneasy ties between the current occupant of the White House and his predecessors, suggesting Trump as a member-in-name-only of the Oval Office fraternity. While the funeral ceremony itself was a warm celebration of the late president, the relationships between the surviving presidents are considerably cooler.

Trump gave the two Obamas a handshake before taking his seat in Washington’s National Cathedral without greeting the others. Hillary Clinton nodded at Melania Trump but then stared straight ahead.

The last of the five presidents to arrive was George W. Bush, who made a point to shake hands with all four couples — and appeared to share a moment of humor with Michelle Obama, slipping something into her hand (a piece of candy, token of friendship). Bush then took his seat with the rest of the Bush family, across the aisle from the ex-presidents.

Some discomfort with Trump was perhaps to be expected.

(Now how did these two reporters know that?)

Since his swearing-in, Trump has spurned most contact with his predecessors — and they have snubbed him in return. But while the staid group of Oval Office occupants has been disrupted since Donald Trump’s election, the Bushes had made it known to the White House months ago that, despite differences in policy and temperament, the late president wanted Trump to attend the national service.

(The deceased Bush wanted it – was it meant to make amends for Bush I’s THROAT CUT at candidate Trump’s campaign in Houston, TX? Or, wouldn’t history wonder why Prez Trump wasn’t there?)

The ceremony’s tributes at times stood as an unspoken counterpoint to Trump’s leadership, as historian Jon Meacham eulogized Bush by recounting his life’s credo: “Tell the truth, don’t blame people, be strong, do your best, try hard, forgive, stay the course.” George W. Bush added of his father: “He could tease and needle, but not out of malice.”

The late Bush was the de facto chair of the modern incarnation of the president’s club, transcending contentious campaigns and party lines to bring together fractious personalities who share that rarified experience.

Trump has sought to meet the elder Bush’s passing with grace, a contrast to the rhythms of much of his tumultuous presidency. He came to office after a campaign in which he harshly criticized his Democratic predecessors and co-opted a Republican Party once dominated by the Bush family. Despite the traditional kinship among presidents, Trump’s predecessors have all made their discomfort known in different ways.

(What did these two writers expect? Prez Trump is standing up to these Globalists which the some of the party didn’t.)

“It’s unusual that a cabal of ex-presidents from both parties dislike a sitting president and that’s what you’ve got happening right now,” said Douglas Brinkley, a history professor at Rice University.

(Brinkley, now must express why – now. The cabal are all politicians and Prez Trump is not. Just think where we would be today if Hillary Clinton had been elected and where we are – politicians don’t like hitting on the truth. A businessman has turned our country around – whereby, these politicians were trying to take it into a Globalists world with wealth being distributed in the past by a corrupted Obama – throughout the world – and we were going into the depths of despair which were his plans. Historians won’t ever state that Obama hated the American people.)

The Trump-Obama handshake marked the first direct interaction between the current president and his immediate predecessor since Inauguration Day 2017. Trump has not spoken to Democrats Clinton or Obama since that day.

He did speak with the younger Bush during the contentious confirmation process for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, as the previous Republican president helped lobby for his former aide. Democrat Carter has been briefed by White House officials on North Korea, though it was not clear if he has engaged directly with Trump.

By virtue of health, longevity and opportunities for continued influence, ex-presidents are sticking around longer than ever and staying active in the public eye.

Past presidents often built relationships with their predecessors, Brinkley said. “Bill Clinton would reach out to Richard Nixon for advice on Russia,” he said. “Harry Truman leaned heavily on Herbert Hoover. It’s endless.”

To be sure, Brinkley added, those ties vary from president to president and there have been chilly relationships as well, noting, for example, that “FDR would never talk to Herbert Hoover.”

Busy with a mix of personal pursuits, charitable endeavors — and, in some cases, paid speaking gigs — the former leaders don’t mingle very often, making a funeral in their group a big occasion. Bonded by the presidency, they tend to exercise caution in their comments about each other. Still, all the living former presidents have aimed barbs — directly or indirectly — at Trump.

(Why is this so: Because they are a part of the Globalist era.)

In a speech in September, Obama slammed the “crazy stuff” coming out of the White House without directly naming Trump. Last year, the younger Bush made a speech that confronted many of the themes of Trump’s presidency without mentioning him by name, cautioning that “bigotry seems emboldened” and the nation’s politics “seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication.”

(The only bigotry which is evident is coming from the cabal because of their political differences – they don’t see the world with the same sun glasses.)

Over the summer, Carter told The Washington Post that Trump’s presidency was a “disaster.” And Clinton — stung by Trump’s defeat of wife Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race — told a weekly newspaper in New York state after her stunning loss that Trump “doesn’t know much.”

(The peanut farmer, Carter, has no room for hype and we all know the world of corruption by the “Clinton’s”; therefore, we do not give any credibility of any of the three. And, Hillary’s remark about Prez Trump “doesn’t know much” gives pause to stupidity on her part.)

Even the late Bush’s feelings about Trump were harsh at times. In Mark K. Updegrove’s book “The Last Republicans,” published last year, the elder Bush called Trump a “blowhard.”

The late Bush said he voted for Clinton in 2016 while George W. Bush said he voted for “none of the above.”

(If Bush II voted for none of the above than it means he didn’t vote at all which is a shame of hate.)

There have been other moments when the ex-presidents offered more sympathetic sentiments for Trump. After Trump’s surprise victory, Obama stood in the Rose Garden at the White House and said he was “rooting” for the next president. Carter told The New York Times in 2017 the media had been harder on Trump than other presidents. Clinton said in June that America should be rooting for Trump to succeed in his North Korea talks.

While he has struggled to set the right tone in past moments of national grief, Trump has gone out of his way to address Bush’s passing with consideration, issuing kind statements and ensuring that Bush family members have whatever they need for the funeral. On Tuesday, first lady Melania Trump welcomed Laura Bush and other family members for a tour of the White House Christmas decorations. And Trump and the first lady visited with members of the Bush family at Blair House.

(It’s the country that is being hurt when this cabal tries to hurt the individual. Obama and Hillary are trying to make this country a socialist/communist country run by the two of them as dictators and lawless – not a Christian nation with a Constitution and laws to protect all citizens and values to match.)

(As citizens we will continue to fight against Obama/Hillary’s ideology. The two of them should be in jail at this very moment.)
