Washington(CNN)Former President George W. Bush will attend President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration, and former President Jimmy Carter will not, their respective representatives said Tuesday.

Bush and former first lady Laura Bush will attend the inauguration, according to Freddy Ford, Bush's chief of staff. The Bushes also attended Barack Obama and Donald Trump's first inaugurations.

"President and Mrs. Bush look forward to returning to the Capitol for the swearing in of President Biden and Vice President Harris," Ford said in a statement. "I believe this will be the eighth inauguration they've had the privilege of attending -- President Trump's being the most recent -- and witnessing the peaceful transfer of power is a hallmark of our democracy that never gets old."

2. Trump made GWB look like a benevolent professor

 

and gave him a chance to rehabilitate his image.

At least he won't be seen as the worst POTUS by history.

3. Jimmy Carter needs to stay safe at home.

He and Roselyn need to stay away from people. They are so special.

10. W was a bad president, but he loves the country and understood what it means to be president.

W made bad decisions, but they were made in good faith. We have had bad presidents like W and corrupt presidents like Nixon, but trump is the first president who just didn't care about the country. For trump being president was just another business opportunity. That is what makes trump unique, he was the first president who was not a patriot.

12. Have you heard anything about the Clintons and Obamas?

I would assume that both couples would attend, but I haven't heard either way.

14. Even without the pandemic, I wouldn't expect the Carters to attend.

They're looking pretty frail. I'm not surprised that Dumbya and Laura are attending. IIRC, his dad attended both of Obama's inaugurations, as did Dan Quayle. It seems only Trump is a petty asshole.
