First lady Melania Trump attended Barbara Bush’s funeral Saturday sans husband Donald—and the internet had a lot to say about her demeanor.
Melanie sat next to former President Barack Obama and shared the remainder of her row with Michelle Obama, Bill Clinton, and Hillary Clinton. Twitter users quickly seized on a photo of the first lady smiling and sharing a laugh with Obama, a rare sight when she’s in the presence of her own husband.
There’s a morbidity to joking that Melania Trump had more fun at a funeral than with her husband, but then again, there’s a morbidity to everything surrounding the current first family. We might as well take whatever Obama-related memes we can get.
When you ditch your husband to sit with the cool kids. #barbarabushfuneral pic.twitter.com/GjKmmM0aIP

Barack said a few words to Melania Trump and she smiled more than I've ever seen her. This is the greatest day of her life. #barbarabushfuneral

Melania, usually stone-faced, is seen smiling for the first time in a while next to Barack Obama.
Donald is not going to like this picture. RT! #BarbaraBushFuneral pic.twitter.com/4XDbLhr2uO

Melania looks happier at a funeral than she has in ages. Wouldn’t you too if you went from being with Donald every day to sitting next to Barack?
