Don’t be a jerk like Philippe!
At the funeral service for Barbara Bush, First Lady Melania Trump was seated next to former President Barack Obama, and they appeared to be having a pleasant conversation at one point:
Barack Obama and Melania Trump are sitting next to each other at Barbara Bush’s funeral. Donald Trump did not attend: https://t.co/mwp8Tpvfad

Among those dripping with disdain for that picture was former Hillary Clinton adviser Philippe Reines:
A funeral. Sitting next to the man she & her husband birthered.
Yet it’s the 1st smile on her in years. In older photos she’s ALWAYS smiling.
Obama is a funny guy, but that’s a woman craving distance from a monster being reminded what dignity looks like.
she’s still complicit. https://t.co/e4IXOze3bt

What a low life…
If you didn’t already realize how awful a person Reines is from the accounts in @amychozick’s book, you should get a sense from the below.
Not many people scummier than this scumbag. https://t.co/XUALWmRfb1

And the people in the responses are even sicker than he is.

And one that wouldn’t know the truth if it smacked him in the mouth
She had nothing to do with Trump adopting the birtherism Hillary started.
Also, plenty of recent pictures of her smiling.
You’re really bad at lying. https://t.co/tqcJWoVeDR

Maybe using a funeral to score political points is one of the many, many reasons you lost? https://t.co/mVdAYevmTG

A perfect example of how not to be when at a service for someone who’s passed.

Melania smiles all the time. Do you live in a cave? https://t.co/v4q0VbDATE

Considering what we found out about that POS yesterday and how he treats women, it’s amazing that he had the audacity to actually tweet that.

Reines has been in the news lately for being not warmly quoted in a book about the Clinton campaign written by NY Times reporter Amy Chozick:
Um, so not only is Clinton flunky Philippe Reines confirming he told a female reporter “I didn’t know I had to say it was off the record when I was inside you,” he’s *doubling down*. https://t.co/wS9ZlbT14S
