7:56 Trump at The Bush Funeral – Here’s What REALLY Happened

Trump at The Bush Funeral – Here’s What REALLY Happened

Did Donald Trump really ignore Bill and Hillary Clinton at George Bush's recent Funeral? Did he also snub Barack and Michelle Obama and the Carters?

In this video, we'll analyze the body language and other communication in this incident so you can more fully understand what really transpired.

— Here's everything I use to make my videos:

It appeared as if the funeral proceedings were actually about to begin when the Trumps entered the church, so it may have been difficult for Trump to greet each of the former presidents and their first ladies, without being somewhat disruptive to the solemn atmosphere.

Also, he was seated at the very end of the row, so only had easy access to the Obamas to reach out a handshake.

Did he have other options he could have employed to acknowledge those other couples? Yes. He could have just walked quickly down the open row in front of those people, and offered his regards to each individually before returning to his seat.

Or he possibly might have stood and waved discreetly toward the other two couples who he could not reach to offer his respects.

While this episode may have been a missed opportunity for Trump to recognize those other presidents, there is not a lot of evidence that his behavior was an obvious or deliberate show of rudeness or even discourtesy.

Have you seen the Jordan Peterson and Cathy Newman debate?
See for yourself how he deals with it and give us your opinion in the comments!

We've all found ourselves in conversation and felt attacked like we started off talking about one thing and then the other person twisted our words and before we knew it, we lost our cool, lost respect in their eyes, and maybe even acted like a jerk. Now, I don't normally do the same person twice in a row but this interview between Cathy Newman and Jordan Peterson was just too interesting of an opportunity to discuss how you can handle someone who uses subtle conversational tricks to bully you into looking dumb. So in this video, you're gonna see firsthand some of the most common tricks that people might be using on you and you're also gonna learn how to reverse those so that you can walk out of a kind of aggressive situation having earned more respect than you had going in.

So first off, to stop a conversational bully, you have to realize what's going on before it's too late. Now, typically, a person will reveal their aggressive attitude early on with their tone of voice and their word choice. Check out the rest that we will show in this video and how Jordan Peterson tackles them.

1:49 Jordan Peterson deals with so-you're-saying trap
2:39 Jordan Peterson deals with the "assuming the sale"
5:30 Jordan Peterson deals with the smash technique
7:08 But don't straw man the other person's ideas though
7:47 And visual imagery can also help
8:25 You can show them that they're already agreeing with you

Trump Destroyed by Comedian Hasan Minhaj at 2017 White House Correspondents Dinner

Hasan Minhaj's full comedy routine at the 2017 White House Correspondents' Dinner. The comedian told one blistering joke after another about the sitting President of the United States, Donald Trump, and the media that covers him. Given this moment in history, it will go down as one of the bravest, and most timely, comedic performances in the dinner's history.
