Donald Trump was reportedly annoyed this week that he had to share the spotlight with funeral services for George H.W. Bush, but was proud of public behavior.

The president attended the state ceremony Wednesday in Washington, D.C., where he received a chilly reception from his predecessors but heard no open rebukes from the Bush family or other speakers at the services, reported the New York Times.

Administration officials revealed to the newspaper that Trump was “snappish with aides most of the week,” at least partly because he resented so many ceremonial events focused on the former president and not himself.

Trump sat through much of the funeral services with his arms folded and did not recite the Apostles’ Creed along with the former presidents and others in attendance or sing hymns.

The newspaper reported that Trump was “impatient for the memorials to end but expressed pride in himself for remaining publicly civil.”

Sources close to the president said he had changed course since he was widely criticized for his public behavior the week of Sen. John McCain’s services, where several speakers took aim at him — and to which he was not invited.

President Obama threatened to beat up a cameraman who didn't put him in the center of his shot.

Donald Trump was reportedly...

LOL! All they have to say is "reportedly", and then follow that with anything they want. That's an old leftist trick. Who is the source on this again?

You know it is true. You know Trump is annoyed that yet another Republican is receiving acclaim from the world in a manner that he will never get.

And you know he's proud of himself for meeting the bare minimum standard of decent human behavior.

Re: Trump was fuming about sharing the spotlight with GHW Bush

Other administration officials stated that Carter & Clinton were both wearing adult diapers, Obama was bumming cigarettes from the Secret Service, and Trump had a fleshlight in his coat.

Does anyone actually think that is untrue?

Who's standards?

Which unnamed "administrative officials?"

When Bush lost to Clinton, the same and similar things had been said about Bush. So easy to forget how the former head of the CIA had been bad mouthed.

Of course he was. He's a narcissist. Trump can't focus on, understand or think about anything other than Trump.

Re: Trump was fuming about sharing the spotlight with GHW Bush

No doubt he was told to keep his mouth shut, sit there and be quiet.The Bush family despises this asshole, no doubt all attending the service felt the same...He had no business being there

Re: Trump was fuming about sharing the spotlight with GHW Bush

I don't know what the trumps were "fuming about" but from the moment the cameras started covering their entrance to their exit they both appeared to be very angry about something. That was BEFORE they were seated, now of course once that were seated I could understand their chagrin because they couldn't have entered Antarctica and received a chiller reception. I don't blame the Formers and their wives the way djt has talked about them I wouldn't piss on him if he were on fire if I were them. I thought Dubya was very gracious even allowing the trumps to come to his fathers funeral.
