It's sad that the Bush family had to make a promise to President Trump that there won't be any anti-Trump comments at George H.W. Bush's funeral. According to the Washington Post, the family don't want anyone to feel uncomfortable.
The Bush family promised President Trump that speeches and eulogies at the late George H.W. Bush's funeral would avoid criticizing him, sources familiar with the funeral preparations told The Washington Post.
The family reportedly assured Trump that the elder Bush's funeral would not include the anti-Trump messaging on display at the August funeral for the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).
“The comparisons are presenting themselves; we are not heightening them,” a source familiar with funeral preparations told the Post.
Another source close to the preparations told the Post that Bush “wouldn’t want anyone there to feel uncomfortable, including the incumbent president.”
“It’s interesting, though, that praising the Bushes or McCain risks sounding critical of Trump even when Trump’s in no way part of the thinking,” the source told the newspaper.
