1. We took sincere people like the Biden's for granted for so long...

Now it is the exception in our daily routine to see decency.

he think he's too good to show a little respect to a good man?

42. K&R. The Idiot would dishonor Mr. Lewis by showing up.

Good he keeps out of the picture so as not to take away from the highest honor due Rep. Lewis, a true patriot & champion of human rights & equality.

He said he wouldn't be attending. Because he has so much class.

15. That's fine. He wasn't missed.

Much better without him blighting the whole thing. He would not be able to sit still. He'd be fidgeting like an unruly first-grader, knowing none of this was about him. And he'd be taking umbrage that he didn't hear his name come up during the various sets of remarks, and probably thinking about who he'd retaliate against and in what way. Spiteful little pissant. AND probably figuring up the ways he'd make sure his own eventual memorial would top it, bigger and showier and with lots more pizazz and gold-tone paint.

Nobody missed him. FAR better and more solemn and elegant NOT having him attend. I forget who the commentator was - who speculated that John Lewis would not have wanted him there, either. It was referred to as a party to which he was not invited. Glad he WASN'T there! He certainly didn't belong.

38. I always wonder if DT ever looks at ceremonies like this & wonders what people will do for HIM when

it's his time? I mentioned to my hubby at dinner "what will anyone say? They can't say he was a good man. Can't say everybody loved him."

for the day.

Joe Biden would have attended any major political figure's funeral/memorial, D or R. Trump would not...

That says so many thing on so many levels.

bearers called out...”Ready, step! Ready, step! Ready, step!” over and over as they labored to carry his body up the Capital steps. Just that had me tearing up.

39. The precision and unison movements of military pallbearers always...

...gives me chills. They are so together that it is as if they function from a single brain.

The same is true for military color guards.

36. Such class and decorum, sincerity and respect.

This is how a First Couple should act. So much class. You'll never see Dr. Jill Biden wearing a jacket that says, "I Really Don't Care. Do U?"

I can't wait until they are in the White House. I truly mean that.

By the way, how many funerals now that the two Dumps have been asked not to attend? I've lost count.
