Social Media Shares Awkward Moment as Trump Family Greet the Obamas at Bush Funeral

Published December 6th, 2018 - 09:57 GMT

Social media users circulated a video of a rare and “awkward” moment when four of the U.S. presidents gathered together in the same row, for the first time since Trump’s inauguration.

At the state funeral of the 41st president of the United States held in Washington's National Cathedral, videos captured the moment when the Carters, the Clintons, Obamas and Trumps gathered in the front row to attend the funeral's ceremony.

However, the rare moment was not devoid of any awkwardness.

As Donald Trump and First Lady Melania were the last to arrive, the moment in which they took their places and shook hands with the Obamas setting next to them seemed tense.

This might not be surprising given the latest remarks made by Michelle Obama in which she vowed never to forgive Trump for stirring up what she called lies made in 2011 that her husband was not born in the United States.
