Reporters speaking in hushed tones & applauding trump's civility is Comedy Gold.

After two years, they know damned well that this asshole will be tweeting shit about Mueller as soon as the ceremonies are over.

He'll be shitting on flynn and anyone else that gets in his way.

He has no choice but to act civil at a presidential funeral.

The world knows there is not a shred of civility in trump. Zero.

1. The fact that a sitting president is not being a thuggish boor at a funeral

should not be news. The fact that it is news tells us that the default mode of this president is thuggish boor.

19. I thought he was a thuggist boor at the funeral.

I admit I only watched a few minutes here and there, drumpf entering and shaking hands, the Meacham eulogy and GWs eulogy. However, drumpf was an ass from the minute he walked in until the end from the glimpses I got and from the pictures I've seen. He was scowling and looking butt hurt every second. He sat all puffed up, red in the face, looking like he wanted to kill someone when he wasn't cat napping and looking like he'd rather be anywhere else and just came to prove he could and spoil the "celebration". However, the joke was on him. The others were into the moment and ignored his low class pouting and refusal to participate.

I didn't hear any media making good remarks about him, did notice them pointing out the non-participation, the sleeping and the almost constant frown and crossed arms. But then again, I avoided most of the hoopla, just couldn't take it.

21. With him it's relative.

He looked surly but he didn't disrupt the service, which made it easy to ignore him. He probably was annoyed at having to take a couple of hours away from watching Fox and tweeting, not to mention that he'd have to just sit there and listen to some dead guy get all the praise while his name was not even mentioned.

2. this is a stupid man

who walked off a stage in Argentina G20 with a live mike on and said "get me out of here".

Wait until this funeral is over, he will back to his rude ruthless self again with tweets. Jerk.

13. And I'm sure he was thinking the exact same thing sitting there

That was such an almost impossible chore to have to sit through for him I'm sure. Where the focus was on someone else. He couldn't weasel out of it like he did with the military memorial services.

3. Give Trump some credit please

He didn't drop his trousers and moon the casket. That's the standard of presidential decorum these days.

4. They should be ashamed of themselves. But, I suspect their lack

of critical thinking skills, and being members of the 1 percenters prevent them from feeling shame.

7. The fact that the bar is now this low speaks volumes about this presidency.

It's really sad that NOT making a raging, pompous ass out of oneself is something worth mentioning on the national news channels.

11. Except, I think "closed in" arms tightly crossed IS acting out. Especially compared

to most everyone else, with calm posture and hands on lap. Reminds me of a child who is being made to do something they don't want to do - and they stiffly cross their arms.

"Please don't let this awful man humiliate the whole nation in public again."

16. I was very impressed with his performance

He didnít reach in his diaper and throw poop at anyone the entire time. If thatís not Presidential I donít know what else he could do.

17. That's about what the media expects these days.

If he doesn't piss on the casket, he's acting "presidential."
