CNN repeatedly attacked President Donald Trump on Monday for putting politics aside and paying respects to former President George H.W. Bush in a segment that exemplified the network’s willingness to criticize the president for ratings and not for his actions.

Trump, despite his clashes with the Bush family, visited Capitol Hill to pay his respects to the 41st president, whose casket was lying in state in the Capitol Rotunda.

CNN used the event to assume the worst of the president and proceeded not to focus on remembering the life of Bush, but instead focus on attacking the president, more specifically, his character.

“He’s not one to mend fences too readily,” CNN’s Jamie Gangel complained. “I think he’s doing this because he feels he has to do it and I’m also assuming General Kelly has had a big hand in it.”

“I do know from the Bush family that they are very appreciative and think the White House has just bent over backwards, gone to great lengths, been extraordinarily helpful,” Gangel continued. “That said, I just can’t help but wonder if there was a thought bubble over Donald Trump’s head just know, what he was thinking as he stood there.”

“I have to imagine he was thinking, ‘how much longer do I have to stand here?'” CNN panelist Jeffrey Engel said.

“It’s, it’s, he had to be there, he did it, um, I think it’s interesting he did it because maybe he could have waited till the National Cathedral and then he saluted,” Gangel added. “It was somewhat theatrical, uh, in nature, but it’s, I, I can’t imagine that this is very comfortable for him, these moments and I think it is going to be fascinating to watch the cathedral on Wednesday and how he interacts with these other presidents and how he sits there during these eulogies.”

Engel then said that people shouldn’t give Trump credit for “not kicking dirt on the grave of a person who just passed away.”

“I think we need to be a little bit thoughtful and careful about how we interpret what President Trump is doing here,” Engel said. “David Gergen just mentioned we need to give him credit for not tweeting out nasty things about President Bush. I’m concerned that we shouldn’t give credit to someone for not kicking dirt on the grave of a person who just passed away.”

WATCH:

The president had tweeted out respectful things about Bush after he passed and immediately ordered the flag at the White House to be lowered to half mast.

    This is so disgusting CNN spreading hate and lies. President Trump will show respect. He don’t need to be told to do it. CNN needs to be taken off the air. They are not news, but liars.

    Why does anyone put the spotlight on CNN? What they do, say, or claim is of no importance to humanity.

    the CNN people,I will not call them reporters, have no clue how to go about telling real news. They embarked on a make believe journey and embraced a concept called fake news, They believe they know all while they know nothing. Someday their tent will fall and maybe, just maybe, they will understand what reality is.

    CNN has no class, no decency whatsoever. I can’t believe people watch such a disgusting biased anti-American program. Jealous people make poor journalists.

    The leftists can’t help it, it’s Trump Derangement Syndrome on full display. It’s like the Obamas and Clintons were all smiles and chummy until The President and Melania came in and they immediately showed their hate for Trump. And they say the Right is the angry side.

    These people have an addiction to President Trump. They have to have their daily dose of Trump Hate every day or they will have the shakes or worse. When he wins re-election in 2020, they all will be on a major melt down and never be able to kick their sick habit in this life time. Intervention will never work. I can’t wait to watch them on election night.
