Melania Trump joins show of unity at Barbara Bush funeral

Out of all the "fake news" Donald Trump's political counselor Kellyanne Conway has spewed in the past year and some change, we've gotta say, this is one of the most eyebrow-raising.

Before they left Barbara Bush's funeral on Saturday, all of the attending former presidents and their spouses took a rare group photo together - and it quickly went viral.

President George H.W. Bush, who just laid his wife to rest, has been hospitalized.

The White House said that President Trump would not attend "to avoid disruptions due to added security, and out of respect for the Bush family and friends".

TMZ asked the president's senior counselor whether she thought reports that USA magazines were snubbing the current first lady were true, since Michelle Obama had been featured in at least a dozen magazines during her husband's eight years in office.

After being spotted by TMZ's cameras in Washington D.C., the gossip site asked Conway about if there's a double standard with First Lady Melania Trump scarcely being featured on magazine covers.

People also noticed that Melania was sitting next to Barack Obama during the funeral service.
