Former President George W. Bush made some waves and raised a few eyebrows during the Dallas memorial event for the five officers slain last Thursday evening. When the choir began singing Battle Hymn of the Republic, Bush began rocking back and forth with a smile on his face, singing along and swinging his arms.
Standing next to him was his wife, Laura Bush, and first lady Michelle Obama, who seemed less jovial for the memorial event and slightly uncomfortable with the former president’s behavior.
Bush quickly came under criticism for his actions via social media, where users questioned whether his conduct was appropriate given the serious nature of the event.

Was that George W. Bush next to Michelle Obama rocking out to “Glory Hallelujah” during the police memorial? Even Biden knows better.

I wonder if Bush was drunk in the memorial service in Dallas. He was dancing to “Glory, glory, alleluia.”
