Three days ago, former First Lady of the United States Barbara Bush passed away at the age of 92 in the Texan city of Houston. In the days since, the other members of the Bush family – including former Presidents of the United States, George, Sr. and George, Jr., and the little engine that could, Jeb Bush – have spoken out to express their mourning and also offer thanks to those who have offered them condolences.

Donald Trump called Barbara ‘a wonderful, wonderful woman’

Current US President Donald Trump said that he and his wife, current First Lady Melania Trump, join the rest of America after the passing of Melania’s predecessor “in celebrating the life of Barbara Bush.” Meanwhile, past President Barack Obama (a member of the Democratic Party and therefore politically opposed to the Bush family) and his wife Michelle (also a former First Lady, of course) released a statement in which they remembered Barbara Bush fondly as “the rock of a family dedicated to public service.”

Bill Clinton, also a former US President and a Democrat and therefore a Bush rival, has praised Barbara as “a remarkable woman,” and said that both he and his wife Hillary – who, as you may remember, ran against Trump in the 2016 Presidential election – are mourning her loss. Death brings two opposing political parties together, apparently.
