Come On: Nets Made Bushís Funeral About Trumpís Behavior
Newsbusters.org ^ | December 6, 2018 | Nicholas Fondacaro

They just couldn’t help themselves. During their Wednesday evening reports on the deeply touching and emotional funeral service for the late President George H.W. Bush at the National Cathedral, broadcast networks ABC, CBS, and NBC had to get in their digs against President Trump for his behavior (or lack thereof). One even touted how Trump managed to keep his mouth shut about Bush all week.

In the midst of their stories on the funeral service, both ABC and CBS noted the tension between President Trump and the Clintons. “The Trumps and Clintons did not shake hands,” reported CBS Evening News anchor Jeff Glor after noting how the Trumps and Obamas greeted each other.

Meanwhile, on ABC’s World News Tonight, they actually had an entire segment set aside for discussing Trump’s behavior and a nation divided under him. “As you saw there, one of the most remarkable images of this day, all of the living American presidents together, even in a divided time,” declared sensationalist anchor David Muir. “Because Jon [Karl], it seems it might have been one last call to service for the late President.”

As if he were a bratty child, ABC chief White House correspondent Jon Karl praised Trump for being on his best behavior around the adults:

And for his part, President Trump honored every request that the Bush family made in planning this week's events. And perhaps most importantly, he remained quiet, uncharacteristically so, leaving the spotlight for this week entirely on the memory of the 41st President.

Come On: Nets Made Bush’s Funeral About Trump’s Behavior

After President Trump was barred from the McCain funeral, the liberal media (Karl in this instance) seemed perplexed that the Bush’s would want the current President there at all:

In fact, David, the Bush family reached out to the Trump White House months ago. They had a clear message. The message was that President Bush wanted President Trump and the First Lady to be part of his memorial. And if you looked out at that crowd today, you also noticed that the Bush family also invited many of the President's top advisers, top White House officials were also there.

“Important unity for the country,” Muir added as they wrapped up the segment.

As for NBC Nightly News, chief foreign affairs correspondent and Clinton fangirl Andrea Mitchell couldn’t help remark that “[i]t was extraordinary to see President Trump sitting with the former presidents paying tribute to a leader whose humility and decency is different from today's politics.

Karl condescendingly praised Trump for “uncharacteristically” “leaving the spotlight for this week entirely on the memory of the 41st President.” Too bad the liberal media couldn’t do the same. But then again, it’s 2018 and everything was now political.

ABC’s World News Tonight December 5, 2018 6:38:24 p.m. Eastern [1 minute 3 seconds]

DAVID MUIR: As you saw there, one of the most remarkable images of this day, all of the living American presidents together, even in a divided time. So, I want to bring in ABC's chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl tonight. Because Jon, it seems it might have been one last call to service for the late President. George H.W. Bush, himself orchestrating this rare moment of unity.

JON KARL: In fact, David, the Bush family reached out to the Trump White House months ago. They had a clear message. The message was that President Bush wanted President Trump and the First Lady to be part of his memorial. And if you looked out at that crowd today, you also noticed that the Bush family also invited many of the President's top advisers, top White House officials were also there. And for his part, President Trump honored every request that the Bush family made in planning this week's events. And perhaps most importantly, he remained quiet, uncharacteristically so, leaving the spotlight for this week entirely on the memory of the 41st President.

MUIR: Important unity for the country. Jon Karl, thanks so much for your reporting all day.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The President of the United States was BARRED from a funeral???? Sure, if you say so.

They are so surprised that the President was able to act like the only adult in the room when he was surrounded by childish assholes.

The Nets and the dims want to remove the man.. the President voted in that office by the people... by voters who were tired of the GOP letting the dims and the Nets run everything for so many years. And the Nets and the dims are not used to dealing with a man who fights back... who does not let them rule ..who has put a dent in their swamp tent where they ruled and reigned for a long time.

Like Newt said, this is not about law.. it’s about removing the President. They don’t like the way he talks, the way he does anything. but the one thing they hate him for.. they lost their power. Don’t the GOP know they are supposed to lay down and take it from the dims?!

They candy coat this CRAP and people believe it. My wife is continually saying, “you’ll never guess what Trump did ...” daily I get this and she’s getting it right from the Daily News, FOX, Drudge ... they are all doing it! I’m keeping the TV off as much as I can, but I can’t turn off her IPad!

I’m afraid that’s common. My wife tells me that “everyone” hates President Trump. Everyone. No one in the entire country thinks he’s doing anything good. Worst president ever. Of course, we live in MA, so she gets info from co-workers, neighbors, and Facebook. We have no TV (guess why?)

One photo during the funeral has Hillary doing her bitter side glance at Trump. It was classic

It's a devious psyops campaign to manipulate the gullible. They pick apart EVERY little thing about him and pretty soon people are hating him - even though they cannot explain exactly why. During WWII the Japanese developed a psyops strategy to ply upon Americans that had two components - 1) your leaders are incompetent 2) your leaders are lying to you at all times. Seems the same strategy is in play right now. Ask your wife if she feels comfortable forming judgements upon opinion of questionable origin, formulated and presented by random people who are experts of nothing.

GHW Bush said he voted for Hillary. Why? Could it because Trump stopped dynasty building?

And the media hate him because he stopped Hillary thus beating them.

For once the voters didn’t have to vote for the lessor of 2 evils.

GHW and GW Bush never disclosed how they voted—said it was no one’s business.
