Ari Fleischer claims George H.W. Bush isn't in attendance for his own funeral

It's not clear what the former White House press secretary was doing but it's certain he didn't expect the reaction he got.

When Ari Fleischer sent out a tweet on Wednesday night that read, "Every VP since 1977 is at President Bush’s funeral, except one. Mondale, Quayle, Gore, Cheney, Biden, and Pence are there. The only one missing is President Reagan’s VP, George HW Bush," it's not entirely clear what the point of the message was supposed to be. It's a certainty that he wasn't prepared for the reaction he got on Twitter.

Even Obama is confused

Yet another brilliant use of media considering President Obama was in attendance.

Perhaps some new glasses?

It's hard not to award this one the tweet of the day, if only because it took all of two words to take the former press secretary down.
