Former first lady Barbara Bush’s funeral was held on Saturday. President Trump chose not to attend “to avoid disruptions,” so his wife Melania had the freedom to do whatever the heck she pleased — and she decided to hang out with some political legends.
She laughed with Barack Obama, power posed next to Michelle, the Bush family, and the Clintons, and spent so so much time SMILING. Can you believe it? Probably not, because no one on Twitter could.
Over the course of Donald Trump’s time in office people have noticed Melania hasn’t always looked too happy. And yet here, at a funeral, when separated from her husband and seated beside Barack Obama, she smiles and laughs.
At the funeral for Barbara Bush today, Melania Trump sat next to guess who…
After over a year in office, Melania has not smiled once in the presence of Donald Trump.
10 minutes with Obama’s, and look what happened!

add “make Melania smile” to the long list of things Obama can do that Trump can’t

After seeing Melania and Barack come across as genuine pals, Twitter users took some time to imagine what the two were discussing.
Many assumed they were gossiping about Donald, but others thought they were simply catching up on the latest television shows or Twitter beefs. Were there any flies on the wall?? If so, we would like to speak to you immediately.
Barack: Good to see you smile for a change.
Melania: Some people choose to see the ugliness in this world. The disarray. I choose to see the beauty.
Barack: So you watch #Westworld
Melania: Not really. I tried to once.
Melania: It doesn’t look like anything to me.

Then, in case that earlier moment of pure political peace was not enough, Melania posed for a photograph with the Bush, Clinton, and Obama families like it was NBD. Why is this photograph so nice?????? What is missing? Hmm…
A major historic moment occurred at St. Martin’s Church on Saturday when former presidents, their wives, & current first lady Melania Trump gathered to say goodbye to the former first lady Barbara Bush.
All politics aside, seeing all those people together, and smiling, is a joy! pic.twitter.com/C2zMQZp5Pb

I see many Democrats sharing that meme photo where Melania has never smiled as bright next to POTUS Donald Trump as she did next to Barack Obama…
… the truth is, Michelle Obama has never smiled this brightly next to Barack as she is in this photo next to Melania Trump. 😉 pic.twitter.com/SNiSkofbp3

Hopefully Melania’s next fun day away from Donald won’t have to be a funeral.
