Trump was fuming about sharing the spotlight with GHW Bush -- but proud of himself for behaving at fu

Source: Raw Story

President Donald Trump was reportedly annoyed this week that he had to share the spotlight with funeral services for George H.W. Bush, but was proud of his public behavior.

The president attended the state ceremony Wednesday in Washington, D.C., where he received a chilly reception from his predecessors but heard no open rebukes from the Bush family or other speakers at the services, reported the New York Times.

Administration officials revealed to the newspaper that Trump was “snappish with aides most of the week,” at least partly because he resented so many ceremonial events focused on the former president and not himself.

...snip...

The newspaper reported that Trump was “impatient for the memorials to end but expressed pride in himself for remaining publicly civil.”

No one else is going to give him a gold star for his peevish behavior.

5. From the images and video I've seen, he has NOTHING to be proud of here

His body language alone at the cathedral displayed petulance; and then his (and Melanoma's) refusal to participate in the service -- reciting the passages scripted in the written program -- conveyed at the very least disrespect, and at worst contempt.

And Individual 1 is proud of this behavior?

23. He is the stark personification of all 7 deadly sins.

Pride.
Gluttony.
Envy.
Greed.
Wrath.
Sloth.
And of course lust.

11. Trump's so dense when a speaker lauded H W Bush for selflessness and service to the country he

had no idea it was a criticism of himself.

15. This ...

"Trump sat through much of the funeral services with his arms folded
and did not recite the Apostles’ Creed along with the former presidents and others in attendance
or sing hymns."

He showed up but did the mimimal required.

16. Ya know, if he really wants a lot of 'ceremonial events focused on him'

he could just up and die. It could even become a National Holiday!

22. Cookies with two scoops of ice cream

for being the bestest boy at the funeral!



How far this nation has fallen, when it is news that the President of the United States didn't act like a kindergartner on a sugar bender at a state funeral.
