Following the unexpected victory of President-elect Donald Trump in the November election, the liberal media made hay for a while with how none of the living former presidents would be attending his Jan. 20 inauguration.
Of course we now know that to be untrue, as all of the living ex-presidents will be in attendance except for former President George H.W. Bush, whose failing health and advanced age will prevent him from attending.
Business Insider reported that a recent letter from Bush to Trump had been posted online and that it detailed exactly why Bush would not be attending, while extending the gracious former leader’s best wishes for the incoming president.
“Barbara and I are so sorry we can’t be there for your Inauguration on January 20th,” the letter read. “My doctor says that if I sit outside in January, it will likely put me six feet under. Same for Barbara. So I guess we’re stuck in Texas.”
“But we will be with you and the country in spirit. I want you to know that I wish you the very best as you begin this incredible journey of leading our great country.”
He ended the short note by saying, “If I can ever be of help, please let me know. All the best, George Bush.”

Reuters reported that Bush was hospitalized over the weekend after experiencing shortness of breath. He has nevertheless “responded very well” to treatment, and it is hoped that he will be released from the hospital soon.
The letter was a remarkably gracious and classy move by the former president, who likely wouldn’t have been blamed for holding hard feelings against Trump, considering how Trump had overwhelmingly defeated Bush’s son, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, in the GOP primaries.
But Bush has risen above party politics and only wants what is best for the country, and it is only his poor health that is keeping him from taking part in the inaugural festivities.
