Two-time failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton snubbed Melania Trump during George H.W. Bush’s funeral on Wednesday, refusing to shake her hand or wave at the First Lady after the other former presidents and their wives did.
Melania shook hands with former President Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, and former President Bill Clinton as she then waved in the direction of Hillary and former President Jimmy Carter – only to receive a wave back from Carter and an awkward and bitter nod back from Hillary.
All the former Presidents and their wives either shake Melania Trump’s hand or give her a friendly wave except for Hillary Clinton who gives her an awkward nod. pic.twitter.com/1yMfOA42GC

Many on Twitter commented that Hillary’s actions at the funeral were rude and classless:
Poor dumb Roland thinks this makes Hillary look dignified instead of confirming what a cold nasty person she is https://t.co/2VZttTR1v0

Hillary’s behavior today at the funeral is exactly why America rejected her two years ago.

What an image. An awkward moment for sure, as Hillary Clinton nodded toward Melania Trump. Some cold stares, but also remarkable that an event can bring this group of people together, at least physically. pic.twitter.com/PY1vOb55pZ
