Washington - President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump have paid their respects to former President George H.W. Bush at the U.S. Capitol.

The nation’s 41st president is lying in state at the Capitol Rotunda. The Trumps stood in front of the casket Monday evening with their eyes closed for a few moments.

After Trump saluted the casket, the pair walked out.

Trump skipped an earlier service at the Capitol, where Bush was eulogized by Vice President Mike Pence, among others.

Trump plans to attend Bush’s state funeral Wednesday at Washington National Cathedral.

Trump has a fractured relationship with the Bush family, whom he has repeatedly criticized. But he has praised Bush since his passing as “just a high-quality man who truly loved his family” and a “terrific guy” who will be missed.

Mike Pence is more sophisticated and intelligent than you will ever be in your miserable life. Shut up, and go back to your safe place.

To #5- I stand by my original statement; Mike Pence is a boring schlub, who puts me to sleep with his speeches. The Jewish community in Indianapolis, Indiana, where Pence is from had a saying that "Pence is no mentch". Case closed!
