The Clintons just gave a powerful response following death of Barbara Bush (Details)

On Tuesday, former First Lady Barbara Bush passed away after refusing further medical treatments. She was 92 years old.



While the Clintons had many political differences with the Bush family, they also maintained a level of respect for each other. Following the death of Barbara, the Clintons issued a heartfelt joint response.

“Barbara Bush was a remarkable woman. She had grit and grace, brains and beauty. She was fierce and feisty in support of her family and friends, her country and her causes. She showed us what an honest, vibrant, full life looks like. Hillary and I mourn her passing and bless her memory.

“We will never forget the courtesy and kindness she and President Bush showed us, starting when I was governor in 1983. I’ll always treasure my summer visits to Kennebunkport. Barbara joked that George and I spent so much time together I had become almost a member of the family, the “black sheep” that had gone astray.

“Our hearts and prayers go out to President Bush; to George, Jeb, Neil, Marvin, Doro, and her grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and to the entire Bush family she loved so much. We know that through them her remarkable strength, warmth and wit, and her devotion to our country will live on.”

CNN’s anchor Jim Acosta tweeted an image of the joint statement.

With so much animosity across the aisle due to the Trumpian style of doing business, most were very pleased to see such an act of civility.



Here are some of the responses on Twitter:
