First Lady Melania Trump made an incredible gesture for the Bush family this week that not many in the media are talking about.
The Bush family has been in Washington, D.C., this week following the tragic death of the late President George H.W. Bush.
On Tuesday, one day before Bush’s state funeral, Melania Trump invited former President George W. Bush and his wife, former First Lady Laura Bush, to the White House.
The Bush family was given a tour of the White House Christmas decorations and even took a picture together in front of the 41st President’s portrait.
Laura Bush uploaded a picture to her Instagram page thanking Melania Trump for the invitation.A sweet visit during this somber week. Thanks to Mrs. Trump for inviting our family to the White House to see the Christmas decorations and our old friends, the residence staff,” Bush wrote.
President Donald Trump also took to Twitter to express his condolences and thank the Bush family accepting the invitation to visit the White House.
“Looking forward to being with the wonderful Bush family at Blair House today. The former First Lady will be coming over to the White House this morning to be given a tour of the Christmas decorations by Melania. The elegance & precision of the last two days have been remarkable!” Trump tweeted.
The gesture, while it may not seem like much, likely meant a lot to the Bush family.
Dealing with the loss of Bush Sr. was certainly hard on the family, and being able to get their minds off of it, even for a few hours, was a very nice gesture by the Trumps.
Former presidential candidate Jeb Bush also praised the Trumps for how gracious they were after the tragic death of his father.
Bush said Trump called him after his father passed away last weekend and said he “couldn’t have been nicer
Of course, the mainstream media has hardly covered this story and the act of kindness.
Instead, many in the media have exploited Bush’s death and funeral to levy a barrage of attacks against Trump.
Earlier this week, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell attacked President Trump for how he held his arms during the state funeral for the late president.
“Watching that service, the president sitting with his arms like this,” Mitchell complained while mocking Trump by crossing her arms and frowning.
MSNBC anchor Lawrence O’Donnell used the funeral to disgustingly claim that no one will speak kindly about President Trump at his own funeral.
“When Donald Trump’s time comes and he is being remembered by people gathered in a cathedral, no one — not one person — will step up to a microphone and say he never hated anyone,” O’Donnell grossly predicted.
“No one will step up and say he was the most decent and honorable person [they] ever met,” he continued. “No one will say he was one of nature’s nobleman. No one will say that.”
