I listened to the speakers at his funeral on NPR.  The name Trump was never mentioned but everything they said made the contrast between Trump and President Bush was made very clear.  I was always fond of daddy Bush even though I disagreed with a lot of what he did.  Another Republican I like who is still alive is John Kasich.  I see no hint of goodness in Trump.

..I listened to the speakers also.....'jr's eulogy was emotional and powerful...

..agreed..Trump should have stayed home...every time the camera panned his way, he looked like a little boy pouting and was completely out of place....

Yep. Trump looked very uncomfortable there and like ZLiz said, while they did not mention his name the shots at him were taken.

If you think about it.....they were just all talking of a good person that was a good President. The fact that Trump doesn't measure up was inconsequential. The rest of the Presidents there
in attendance did.....and the day wasn't about Trump.

His sitting there with his arms crossed said it all too.....he knew it wasn't about him...and was extremely uncomfortable with no stage to wander off of.....
