It is not clear what else was said between them. 

Unfortunately, Ivanka Trump and Chelsea Clinton, former friends turned political foes, were sitting too far back in the pews to be understood. 

Body language expert Dr. Lillian Glass also picked apart how the mood changed when President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump took their seats next to the Obamas and the Clintons. 

Hillary seemed to thank Karen Pence for ‘inviting’ her ‘to an event’, according to the lip reader. She was polite but reserved as she spoke with the Pences. When the Trumps arrived, Hillary nodded to welcome Melania but she turned her gaze away before it reached the president

‘Phony smiles’: A body language expert said the Obamas were ‘trying to be cordial’ to the Trumps but could not help ‘showing their true feelings’. Michelle said: ‘Good morning’ to President Trump as she shook his hand

Barack Obama appeared to say ‘welcome’ to the Trumps but it is unclear what else he muttered when they took their seats. Body language experts noted how his lips were pursed and his eyes were not crinkled meaning he was tense

Jimmy Carter offered Melania a warm wave and enthusiastic smile when she arrived 

One of the most endearing and intimate moments of the event was when George W. Bush slipped Michelle Obama a piece of candy on his way into the church. He did this at Senator John McCain’s funeral in September. Michelle, speaking after that event, said George W. was her ‘partner in crime’ at major events 

‘You see Obama is very tense around Trump. He has a very phony smile where his lips are pursed.

‘His eyes are not crinkling.  Michelle has a phony smile, her eyes are not crinkling either. 

‘They’re trying to be cordial but their true feelings are coming out.’ 

She also spoke of the touching moment Jeb Bush reached out for his brother George W. once he had sat back down, still crying, having just delivered a tear-jerking eulogy to their father. 

‘Jeb touches his knee and comforts him and that speaks to the emotion and the closeness of their relationship,’ she said.
