The Heavily Decorated Army Major Escorting Trump At Billy Grahamís Funeral Is Grahamís Grandson

Donald Trump arrived at Billy Graham’s funeral in North Carolina Friday, where he was escorted by a very special member of the Graham family.

As POTUS walked to the tent where Graham’s family and dignitaries were gathered, he was met halfway by a uniformed Army Major. The two saluted each other and the Major escorted the first and second families to their seats.

What many watching may not know is the identity of that man. He is Billy Graham’s grandson, Edward. Edward graduated from West Point and served seven tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, where he was once injured by shrapnel from an IED.

Graham escorted the family and left Trump at his chair with a salute.

Graham was also in Washington, DC, for his grandfather’s service at the United States Capitol. Graham stood for hours, shaking the hands of all of those who were there to pay honor to Billy Graham.

Edward’s father, Franklin Graham, told The Daily Caller, “These people stood outside for us and for my father.” He continued, “I will stand here for them. We love them and so does God.”

He has the family look, just like his dad Franklin.

I was glad they didn’t come. W and Jimmuh are works-based “Christians”. The Marxist Messiah is his own god when he isn’t quietly worshiping alluh.

“And, where were gwb, jimmy carter, lyin’ king? I’ll give ghwb a pass due to his health. The other 3-———disgraceful.”

I have seen several people ask this question and I think I may know the answer. Granted, GHWB is old and sick, and his younger brother passed away a few days ago. GWB may be by his father’s side for that reason. Carter is frail but still travels. I’m not sure what his schedule is. Bill Clinton has no excuses at all I bet. Anyway, my point is that I think that the two or three who could have come didn’t do so because they knew Trump was coming. I think they despise him so much that they can’t even come to the funeral of a friend because Trump was there too. I honestly believe that.

A bit off topic, but I was watching the preliminaries on the computer while the producers were giving close up crowd shots. At one point, the camera focused in on a woman’s face. When she noticed that, she immediately covered up that side of her face with fingers, and then jerked her head a bit and all her hair fell down that covered her face completely. I wondered why she was trying to hide.

I think Hillary would pass out if she got near President Trump. That's how traumatized she was by her loss.

And if she doesn't go, Bubba can't go. Ya know how close they are.

W was in Charlotte Monday and Slick on Tuesday.

No way that witch Hillary was near. Obama had no need to attend as it wasn’t his funeral.

Despise him? Or are afraid to look him in the eye, for fear of what Trump might see in their souls?

How fantastic! Thanks for posting this grossly under-reported story. This is what REAL Americans are like, not the sniveling fake-victim whiners the Dems always parade around.
