The most decent honorable person I ever met with my friend, George Bush, one of nature's noblemen hatred corrodes the container. It's carried in. And they're sitting in front of former Republican Senator Alan Simpson in the front row is a man who is nothing but hatred filled with hatred and Alan Simpson's view, a corroding container of a man. On Donald Trump's time comes and he is being remembered by people gathered in a cathedral. No, one not one person will step up to the microphone and say, he never hated anyone. No one will step up and say, he was the most decent and honorable person I ever met. No one will say he was one of nature's noblemen. No one will say that. I know Alan Simpson I worked with him when I was on the democratic staff and the United States Senate, and he was one of the most reasonable Republicans with whom we mostly disagreed on policy but worked with every day. Alan Simpson knew that by saying George Bush never hated anyone and by saying hatred corrodes that container. It's carried in his words would be interpreted as a direct reference to. Donald trump. Alan Simpson knew that his words would be taken as praise for George Bush and at the same time as condemnation for the president who has publicly spewed more hatred than any president in history.

The only time that Donald Trump and Barack Obama sat as close together in a private conversation was when President Obama invited President-elect Trump into the Oval Office, and when the door was closed, President Obama warned Donald Trump, not to hire Michael Flynn as his national security adviser. Donald Trump had to sit in that front row today with the other presidents without Trump drowning in the countless humiliations he has brought upon himself as president, including recurring proofs that he is the most ignorant president in history. Donald Trump had to sit there in the front row, the National Cathedral covered in the humiliation. He has earned. Thanks to stormy Daniels description of his pursuit of her and the federal criminal case in which Donald Trump is named as an unindicted co conspirator for arranging illegal payments to stormy Daniels. It's hard to know, which of Donald Trump's many humiliations weighs on him the most. But today sitting in that front row with President Obama on a day when Michael Flynn is once again dominating the headlines. It must have been extra painful for Donald Trump that Barack Obama was sitting in the I told you so position on Michael Flynn.
