arms around each other and being there. our thoughts and prayers are with the bush family tonight. great lady, great memory, great legacy and now it henry is in for shannon. take it away. >> i am it henry filling another busy newsnight. breaking details of the horrifying gnerre the, the first us airline fatality in decades. live coverage on the passing of first lady barbara bush continues which we heard from pres.s and first ladies across the political divide. barbara bush will be remembered for her devotion, the obamas noting she is the rock of a family dedicated to public service. the clinton saying simply she was fierce and feisty but full of grit and grace. what struck me is the reaction of a basketball great named earl
russell to help the celtics win 11 championships. barbara bush walked up to this and said i want to introduce myself. and said to the former first lady i know who you are. that always stuck with me. i thought it was nice of her. joining the with reflection, brett bear and senior political analyst britt hume. i want to start with you because i heard the stories how white house correspondence used to go to kennebunkport and you would find the president in the backyard flipping burgers, drinking beer out of a can and this couple that was known as being very powerful, very rich also seemed very approachable. >> they certainly did and it had been customary for presidents on vacation to throw a little party
for the press that have to cover them on these trips and the family could come and kids could come they were there and they always did a very friendly and gracious way and mrs. bush was especially gracious of those events but you always sense that while she was sympathetic and well-meaning and friendly and full of hospitality that if your shirttail was untucked or you look sloppy, she would not fail to notice. you ever attended this events were always aware of somebody was on patrol she always was. we never felt she was being horribly judgmental but we knew to be on our best behavior. >> we met each other covering the second president bush and had the great fortune and honor to cover these powerful people, this was a woman who was formidable in her own right. >> he was the matriarch and anybody in that family will say she lay down the law, she had warmth and wit, a sharp tongue
and you knew where she stood a lot of issues. what was striking was the love affair between barbara bush and hw bush and she said i married the first man i ever kissed and she said when i told it to my children they just about throw up. she had a lot of humor. on this date is important to remember that 41, hw bush held her hands all day. according to staff, he was there throughout the day and was there when she passed. he is being stoic and strong, lifted up by a large and supportive family but obviously this is saying goodbye to the love of his life, 73 years, they celebrated 72 years of marriage january 6th and there was nothing like that covered. >> you saw the couple up close, brett is referring to the statement we have seen from the longtime chief of staff to bush xli as he is known.
it is obviously impossible to get in his head but this has to be heartbreaking for him. >> of course because their marriage was so solid, so enduring, the family was such a success. they had one tragedy when the little girl died at the age of 3 but we know who the other members of the family were. they have done well and prospered, the president served two terms, governor jeb bush, dorothy, a man we all know around washington is a terrific success in business, these people were close to one another, their admiration for their parents was palpable when you saw them all together. that was teasing and friendly competition but this was an unusually close family and they
set an example, family values, a family we could look up to and admire and sympathize with and i speak for everyone when i say our hearts go out to them especially pres. george hw bush who has lost the love of his life tonight in the late stage of his own life when he has had plenty of health challenges. our prayers are with him for sure. >> the young george w. bush came home late last night, stumbling at 2:00 in the morning and this agent says you might want to be careful, your mom was looking for you and they are upstairs sleeping and mind your business and gets out of the way and w opens the door and makes all this noise, light come on, mrs. bush comes running down it yells at him for being out late and you go apologize to that agent,
be more polite. my mom said i need to apologize to you. that says a lot about young george w. bush but she did - she lay down the law. >> she treated everybody -- >> the secret service put out a statement. they have a real love for hw and barbara bush. the people who worked for the bushes expressed that. her codename was tranquility. george w. bush used to say he had his father's eyes but his mother's mouth. they knew the language, she was going to come back with a quip. she published in her memoir in which she advised them, enjoy life, don't cry over things that were or things that aren't, enjoy what you have to the fullest.
you only have two choices, like what you do or dislike it. i choose to like it and what fun i had. she said on her 90th birthday she is the luckiest woman in the world, she lived a full life that dealt a lot with the family. >> she had to be second fiddle sometimes to a president of the united states and mother of a second president, in the 80s, she was asked on the today show it seems he is a man of the 80s and you are a woman of the 40s and left it off and said later she felt like crying. >> she would never do that with all her dignity and strength. and absurd comment, those people
are from a second-generation. and a certain set of values and codes of conduct, something you can admire and did. >> i don't with medical care anywhere, she had the family around and told she was enjoying some bourbon. >> until the end, you can imagine that scene. it is powerful that we know that, she chose to not continue medical care and chose to be with her family in comfort care in the hospice, to go through the choice, how they did it. >> a final thought, first ladies pick issues that are important to them, sometimes it matters more than for others which nancy
reagan, mrs. bush is all about literacy. >> one of the last times i saw her was last december when i went to the bush library to mc part of the pearl harbor commemorations. she was not, president bush 41 hosted a dinner, she was off in the literacy event. that spoke to her commitment to that cause she never wavered on but my final thought about her was the example she said as a mother and first lady, what she is remembered by, the woman they call the several -- silver fox, someone we all looked up to and that was an exemplary and she
certainly was. >> commencement address, i chose literacy because i believe that more people could read, write and comprehend we would be closer to solving so many problems plaguing our society. she was about privacy, being with her family. at this end, suite but better end for a nation and the bushes continue. >> thank you. flags are at half staff in the bush library. these are live pictures, in the bush family neighborhood. >> we have seen quite a bit of crowds showing up, neighbors, people from the public dropping by and show their signs and support, have been asking the
press a lot of questions, we have not seen a lot of activity in and around the black irongate, entrance to the exclusive neighborhood where mrs. bush passed away, for the president, he did in fact, was at her side when she, quote, left this good earth. and his, quote, stoic and strong, lifted up by his large and supportive family. one of her sons, former pres. george w. bush had this to stay in a statement, mom kept us on our toes and kept us laughing until the end is i'm a lucky man that barbara bush was my mother. our family will miss her daily
and thank her for her prayers and good wishes. one of her grandsons, george p bush, and commissioner the state of texas writing my grandmother didn't just live life, she lived it well and the sorrow of her loss is softened by the knowledge or impact on the family and country. flags lowered half staff outside the george w. bush presidential library and college station, across the country ordered by donald trump, and the former first lady will be laid to rest, to the daughter she and george lost to leukemia at age 3. it is ultimate going to be the resting place of president bush himself at the library. here's some reaction from well-wishers there tonight. >> her activism continued on past her husband's presidency,

journey, and every level of partnerships in local communities. is this a good first step? >> unconscious bias we deal with every day in our society, what happens in this case, individuals waiting for a meeting as many of us do that their local starbucks and reaching out and finding out why they were there this manager decided to call the police after them. the police chose to arrest them because they were waiting for their meeting which is something we have all done on this panel. starbucks is moving in this direction is hopefully other companies will join that because unconscious bias is a problem and it starts by looking in the mirror and figuring out do i have unconscious bias? >> what do you think of this training? >> i agree with the second part of what richard said, the ratings for starbucks to correct
the situation that happened at this particular store. the ceo met with the people who were improperly arrested, don't think it was handled well in that instance but does that justify a nationwide closing of the entire chain to get the entire workforce at starbucks and this diversity training, a bad call by one employee at one store out of 8000. that seems like overkill, overcompensation for a bad decision in one location. >> another story, stormy daniels on this publicity to a. a lot of people on the president's either frustrated with that and when she went to the view she got more hostile reception and she was expecting. >> it had nothing to do with the case, seemed like you were trying to get attention which i understand your being sued by our president but you are

attention. her lawyer will be beating down the door of any television studio that will have him for weeks on end, it is part of their strategy. if there is a poll that comes out the american people believe stormy daniels, it is not that big a story. don't know where this works. >> stormy daniels is allowed to get his attention because the president decide non-disclosure, we wouldn't be here. >> a false story was damaging. all of you gentle blue. core in the sky, a fire's worst nightmare, those stories will return. ♪ but there will still be pain. it comes when your insurance company says they'll only pay three-quarters of what it takes to replace it. what are you supposed to do? drive three-quarters of a car? now if you had liberty mutual new car replacement™, you'd get your whole car back.
