Gov. Brown orders flags to half-staff in Barbara Bush's honor

  • The giant flagpole on the grounds of Donald Trump's private club Mar-a Lago flew high on Wednesday morning despite an order from Trump himself that flags should be flown at half-staff following the death of Barbara Bush the White House later corrected

Former First Lady Barbara Bush, who passed away on Tuesday, once had a bit of a brush with TV's Marge Simpson.

"She and I were needling each other", Bush said, "and the doctor came in, and she turned to the doctor and said, 'You want to know why George W.is the way he is?' And the doctor looked somewhat surprised, and she said, 'Because I drank and smoked when I was pregnant with him'". Daughter Dorothy, or Doro, has preferred to stay out of the spotlight. "We all know that", Mrs.

Dolly Dominy and her mother waited outside the George Bush Presidential Library on the campus of Texas A&M University 10 minutes before it opened Wednesday morning.

"Night after night, George held me weeping in his arms while I tried to explain my feelings", she wrote. "The grace, honor and decency of Barbara Bush and her husband displayed are entirely absent in President Trump and his clan of grifters". Well before George Bush became president, Acree and her late husband were active Republicans. All I had to do was keep a pool of children under control, but even then I needed her help.

As first lady, from 1989 to 1993, she embraced the cause of universal literacy, and founded a foundation for family literacy.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb has directed flags across IN to be flown at half-staff to honor former first lady Barbara Bush. "She's managed to insult almost all of my friends with one or another perfectly timed acerbic comment", Laura Bush said in her 2010 book, "Spoken from the Heart".

"The entire Bush family (is) in my family's prayers tonight", he tweeted.


"People know the name Barbara Bush", says Finck.

Mrs. Bush cradled an infant, kissed a toddler and hugged an adult AIDS victim to demonstrate a message: "You can hug and pick up AIDS babies and people who have the HIV virus" without hurting yourself, she said. But many would also tell you, she was the real deal. And as an American, I'm grateful for her service.

Kaplan was Jeb Bush's last chief of staff, in 2005-06, and said he could tell where the governor got the trait of asking pointed questions.

"They no longer do", she lamented.

Stapleton remembered his "Aunt Barb" as a motherly figure who could "give you a tongue lashing like nobody else" and who "would not tolerate rude behavior, selfishness or bad manners of any kind". But in the spring of 1990, she found herself in a battle on the front page of The New York Times. I'll always treasure my summer visits to Kennebunkport. "They pulled back the curtain, and there it was, 'The Robin Bush Center.' Needless to say, George and I both burst into tears'".

The United States is a nation in mourning after the passing of Former First Lady Barbara Bush.
