George W. Bush and Michelle Obama Caught Together At McCain Funeral In Sick Viral Moment

Published

on

With the death of Senator John McCain has come a string of memorial services, lying in state, and wakes. However, now that a week has passed those services are over. But, what people have to say about what went on during them is still going on.

Former President Obama, his wife former First Lady Michelle Obama, and former President George W. Bush and his wife former First Lady Barbara Bush were in attendance. It was the unlikely showcase of friendship between Michelle Obama and George Bush that had people talking. Some in very different ways.

The Hill reported,

“A light-hearted moment between former President George W. Bush and former first lady Michelle Obama during the funeral service for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Saturday went viral. Social media users quickly caught on to the brief moment, showing Bush passing something from former first lady Laura Bush to Obama. It’s unclear what exactly was passed to Obama, though MSNBC described it as candy.

Bush has spoken openly before about his “genuine” affection for Michelle Obama. “She kind of likes my sense of humor. Anybody who likes my sense of humor, I immediately like,” Bush told People Magazine last year. The pair are often seen laughing at events together and a photo of them sharing a hug during the opening ceremony of the African American History Museum in Washington in 2016 went viral on social media.

“I needle her a little bit and around her, I’m fairly lighthearted. [The Obamas] are around serious people all the time, and we just took to each other,” Bush said last year. Both Bush and former President Obama gave eulogies during McCain’s service Saturday. McCain died last week at the age of 81, a year after being diagnosed with brain cancer.

Obama praised McCain’s ability to rise above “small and mean and petty” political controversies. He also spoke about McCain’s sense of humor. “What better way to get a last laugh than to make George and I say nice things about him to a national audience,” Obama joked.

President Trump was not invited to McCain’s funeral services, though several members of his administration attended, including his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner. Defense Secretary James Mattis, White House chief of staff John Kelly and national security adviser John Bolton were also in attendance Saturday.”

The Hill also reported in a separate article,

“Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) on Saturday shared a photo of three former presidents from two political parties in attendance at the funeral for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), declaring “decency wins.” Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) on Saturday shared a photo of three former presidents from two political parties in attendance at the funeral for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), declaring “decency wins.”

Flake, who is retiring after this year, joined McCain as one of Trump’s most vocal critics in the GOP, frequently criticizing the Trump administration over various policy positions and comments from the president. The retiring senator has repeatedly criticized Trump in the past year, including taking to the Senate floor in January to denounce the president’s attacks on the mainstream news media.

Twenty-four senators, including Flake, attended the funeral service Saturday for McCain in Washington, D.C., according to Roll Call, while six former senators also attended. McCain, who served in the Senate since 1987, was known for bucking party and operating as a “maverick” senator who frequently crossed party lines to find bipartisan consensus.

His funeral arrangements underscored his tense relationship with Trump, who questioned his status as a war hero during the 2016 presidential race and blasted his vote last year against a scaled-down ObamaCare repeal bill. Trump was not invited to attend McCain’s funeral service, instead spending several hours on Saturday at at his golf course in Virginia. Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner attended the funeral. Bush and Obama, who both faced McCain during their respective White House runs, eulogized the late senator on Saturday among friends and family.”

McCain ran for president in 2008 against the ultimate winner, then-Senator Barack Obama. He was a military officer and prominent American politician who served two terms in the United States House of Representatives as well as several terms in the United States Senate. Prior to his public service, he served the United States in the military.

In 1958 he graduated from the United States Naval Academy and was commissioned into the United States Navy. During his time in service, he was a naval aviator who undertook flying ground attack aircraft from aircraft carriers in the ocean. This all took place during the Vietnam war.

His service is most notable for his being seriously injured, shot down, and later captured by North Vietnamese forces when he was on a bombing mission during Operation Rolling Thunder near Hanoi in 1967. For several years he was a prisoner of war and was tortured. However, he refused early repatriation and remained with his fellow prisoners of war.

REPORT: Mueller’s Investigation Is Over… NO COLLUSION

Published

* By

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: Sara Palin

It is being reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into President Trump and his 2016 presidential campaign is over, or is at least in its final stages.

In an exclusive report, One American News Network claims the Mueller investigation has “thoroughly investigated all known possible individuals” and has been unable to make a connection between officials on the Trump campaign team, WikiLeaks officials, or Russian sources.

From their report:

Mueller’s investigators have been focused on determining whether there was direct or indirect communications with WikiLeaks and Russian sources loosely associated with the 2016 Trump campaign.

Specifically, Mueller’s team has been aggressively drilling down to determine if there was any advance knowledge of anyone remotely associated with the Trump campaign, and advanced notice of the leaked DNC documents and hacked John Podesta’s email.

Mueller”s investigation team has thoroughly investigated all known possible individuals with potential advanced knowledge of the leaked documents. A number of individuals have been interrogated, some multiple times to date. Documents in at least the hundreds of thousands have been reviewed. Computer equipment has been reviewed by top electronic forensic teams, and a long list of individuals have been subpoenaed and interrogated.

Per the report, Steve Bannon, Dr. Jerome Corsi, Tandy Credico, Theodore “Ted” Roosevelt Malloch, Sam Nunsberg, and Roger Stone have all been subpoenaed and interrogated for information about potential advanced knowledge of the WikiLeaks release of private emails of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta.

And:

The implication is that Roger Stone knew well in advance that the Podesta emails were hacked and would be released.

There is no credible evidence indicating that Roger Stone or any other individuals loosely associated to the Trump 2016 campaign had any advance knowledge of the WikiLeak, DNC and Podesta emails.

The investigation is wrapping up regarding Roger Stone’s possible collusion with no findings.

Check it out:

Here’s more on Jerome Corsi’s interaction with the Mueller investigation, via the Wall Street Journal:

Corsi said that he had turned over his computers and phone records to investigators in an effort to cooperate and demonstrate that he had nothing to hide. Mr. Corsi was also questioned by investigators about his interactions with other conservative activists and the website WikiLeaks before a grand jury, The Wall Street Journal previously reported.

“We had nothing to hide,” Mr. Corsi said on YouTube about his cooperation with the special counsel investigation.

And:

During the 2016 campaign, Mr. Corsi was also a part of a small, informal network of researchers and activists on the margins of Republican politics who were looking for incriminating information about Hillary Clinton, Mr. Trump’s Democratic rival. The Journal has previously reported that the special counsel is looking at whether Mr. Corsi or any other activists had advance knowledge of email hacks and leaks that U.S. intelligence agencies have said were part of a Russian campaign to help Mr. Trump win.

Prosecutors have been scrutinizing messages sent between Mr. Corsi and Roger Stone, a Trump confidant, in which they discussed material that would eventually be released by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, according to a person familiar with the matter. In his YouTube broadcast, Mr. Corsi asserted that he had “figured out” that Mr. Assange had emails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

Some outlets report the Mueller investigation could make more indictments as early as today regarding the Russia probe, but it is not believe they are related to collusion.

Mueller reportedly plans to issue new indictments in the Russia investigation TODAY

The special counsel Robert Mueller is expected to issue new indictments as part of the Russia investigation as soon as Tuesday, CBS reported, citing multiple sources with knowledge of the probe.

Meanwhile, acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker plans to consult with Department of Justice ethics officials about whether he should recuse himself from the investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, a department representative said Monday.

Since Mueller took over the investigation in May 2017, his team has charged four Americans once affiliated with Trump’s campaign or administration, 13 Russian nationals, 12 Russian intelligence officers, three Russian companies, and three other people.

They include Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman, George Papadopoulos, a former Trump campaign adviser, and Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser.

Talks between Manafort and Mueller’s team have reportedly stalled.

November and December are widely expected to be busy months for Mueller, following a quiet period during which prosecutors, following DOJ guidelines, avoided taking any actions that could be seen as influencing the outcome of the midterm elections.

For months, Mueller has been zeroing in on the longtime GOP strategist Roger Stone and his associates. At the center of Mueller’s focus is whether Stone or any other Trump associates had advance knowledge that Russia had stolen batches of emails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign and disseminated them via the pro-transparency group WikiLeaks, founded by Julian Assange.

In addition to Stone, Mueller has also focused on the far-right commentator Jerome Corsi, who told NBC News on Monday that Mueller’s team told him he would be indicted.

“I don’t recall ever meeting Julian Assange or getting information from anyone about what he had including the Podesta emails,” Corsi said Monday, referring to John Podesta, the Clinton campaign manager. “But they have all your emails and phone records … They’re very good at the perjury trap.” Continue Reading…
