Trump Gets Torched Online For Treating Soldier Like His Personal Coatboy — Watch Michelle’s Face
President Trump is taking heat online after Twitter users noticed how he handed his coat to a soldier who escorted him to his seat at the state funeral of former President George H.W. Bush on Wednesday.
Trump and first lady Melania Trump entered the Washington National Cathedral, walking down the center aisle and to their seats in the front row next to former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama. Both Trumps shook hands with each of the Obamas. It’s the first time Trump meets with his predecessors since taking office.
Melania Trump shook hands with former President Bill Clinton and appeared to wave to former first lady Hillary Clinton, who were seated next to the Obamas, before sitting down. But President Trump and the Clintons did not appear to acknowledge each other, yet another sign the wounds have not healed from Trump and Hillary Clinton’s bitter presidential race in 2016.
The Trumps also did not greet former President Jimmy Carter and former first lady Rosalynn Carter, who were sitting further down the aisle.
All of the leaders and their wives then sat expressionless, making for a somewhat awkward moment between the former presidents ahead of the Bush funeral.
Trump has had an acrimonious relationship with his predecessors, whom he has often criticized in the two years since taking office. The Bush family, who has also come under fire from President Trump, invited him to the funeral in a show of national unity.
Former President George W. Bush, who has not spoken with President Trump since he entered the Oval Office, will eulogize his father at Wednesday’s service.
Watch the moment that is taking the internet by storm:

I'm surprised he actually took his overcoat off; he seems to prefer to wear it both inside & out regardless of weather—like a security blanket.
