REPORT: Donald and Melania Trump Travel in Motorcade to Go 0.1 Mile Across the Street to Blair House to Meet With the Bush Family

Seriously?

At another world gathering, the President skipped a walk to take a golf cart and drew criticism for the decision.

While in France for the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI, the President skipped a symbolic walk down the Champs-Élysées with French President Emmanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, British Prime Minister Theresa May and German Chancellor Angela Merkel as well as other world leaders.

That choice also drew anger from people in the United States and around the world.

The expense of the use of a motorcade over walking also drew ire.

One Twitter user offered an alternate means of transportation.

President George H.W. Bush’s state funeral is Wednesday at the National Cathedral, followed by a memorial service in Houston before he is laid to rest next to his beloved wife at his presidential library in College Station, Texas.
