CNN once again proved this weekend that they will stoop to any level to beat down President Donald J. Trump, this time using the late first lady Barbara Bush as their club.
“President Donald Trump will not attend Saturday’s funeral service for former first lady Barbara Bush, the White House said in a statement Thursday, citing the desire to ‘avoid disruptions’ and out of respect for her family and friends,'” CNN wrote.
The piece was a clear attempt to make Trump look insensitive for not attending the funeral. But sitting Presidents do not usually attend the funerals of first ladies. Here are the facts that CNN conveniently left out of their piece:
In 1994 Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis died and President Bill Clinton sent First Lady Hillary Clinton to her funeral. In 2007, Lady Bird Johnson died and President George W. Bush sent First Lady Laura Bush to her funeral. In 2011, Betty Ford died and President Barack Obama sent First Lady Michelle Obama to her funeral. In 2016, Nancy Reagan died and again President Barack Obama sent First Lady Michelle Obama to her funeral.
Now, in 2018, Barbara Bush died and President Donald Trump sent First Lady Melania Trump to her funeral. It seems the normal protocol was followed.
But that bit of information would be lost on CNN readers.
On the contrary, Trump was quite gracious.
Trump described Mrs. Bush as a “wonderful, wonderful person” and “a titan in American life.”
“Her strength and toughness really embodied the spirit of our country,” he said. “She was a woman of proud patriotism and profound faith.”
He later tweeted out his condolences.

TRUST THE MAN: Here’s A Growing Map of Deep State Conspirators Who Have Been Fired
President Donald Trump continues to solidify the American people’s position in the federal government.
Former FBI director James Comey is reeling from the FBI’s release of information pertaining to his exit from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The forms reveal a mad dash by the Department of Justice in the days after Comey’s spring 2017 firing to retrieve secret information from Comey’s office and to figure out the extent of what Comey was actually doing as FBI director.
Comey signed the Sensitive Compartmented Information Nondisclosure Agreement, which makes it all the more serious that Comey violated sections 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 13 by illegally handing over presidential briefing memorandums (page 5 and 6 of FBI release).

Comey is not alone in his government unemployment.
An interactive mapping project has sprung up on mindmeister to track Deep State conspirator cells that have been fired in the age of President Donald Trump.
