In the midst of so many negative news stories, it’s nice to see something like this that warms the heart.
Former First Lady Laura Bush sent a very sweet and touching message to our current First Lady Melania Trump, thanking her for her hospitality during the George H.W. Bush’s funeral.
USA Today reported that the Trumps invited the former FLOTUS and a host of Bush children and grandchildren to see the much-mocked Christmas decorations at the White Houseon Tuesday morning, but the visit was private and no photographers or reporters were present, said Trump’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham.
But later, Laura Bush posted pictures on Instagramof a crowd of Bushes gathered round under the White House portrait of the 41st president, which was draped in black cloth.
And here's more, from TheDailyWire:
A day before former President George H.W. Bush was laid to rest, former First Lady Laura Bush and Bush family members were hosted by First Lady Melania Trump at the White House, touring the much-discussed Christmas decor. Mrs. Bush was quick to thank Mrs. Trump for the "sweet visit during this somber week."
"Thanks to Mrs. Trump for inviting our family to the White House to see the Christmas decorations and our old friends, the residence staff," wrote the former First Lady, posting two photos from the visit.
One of the photos featured a gathering of Bushes in front of a White House portrait, draped in black cloth, of the late George H.W. Bush.
"Looking forward to being with the wonderful Bush family at Blair House today," President Donald Trump posted in preparation for the visit. "The former First Lady will be coming over to the White House this morning to be given a tour of the Christmas decorations by Melania. The elegance & precision of the last two days have been remarkable!"
Stephanie Grisham, the First Lady's spokeswoman, said the visit was closed off to the press and photographers, though photos of the visit have been floating around the Internet.
Following the visit, the Trumps and the Bushes greeted one another in a warm exchange outside the presidential guest house, Blair House (video below).
