During live coverage of the service, Chris Wallace of Fox News said he was struck by the reception of President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump upon their arrival at the funeral for George H.W. Bush claiming “a chill had descended” on the front row.
“I have to say I was struck when President Trump and Melania Trump came to the front row, that it was as if a chill had descended on that front row.” Wallace said.
“You had seen a lot of chatty talk between the Clintons, Obamas, and the Carters. But when Donald Trump sat down, the greeting that he was given by Barack Obama and Michelle Obama was about as cool as it could have been.” He added. (Videos Below)

What an image. An awkward moment for sure, as Hillary Clinton nodded toward Melania Trump. Some cold stares, but also remarkable that an event can bring this group of people together, at least physically. pic.twitter.com/PY1vOb55pZ
