While visiting former President George H.W. Bush’s casket, currently inside the Capitol Rotunda, former Senator and GOP presidential candidate Bob Dole insisted on being lifted out of his wheelchair so he could salute the former chief executive.
The 95-year-old Dole, by the way, is confined to a wheelchair.
Here’s video posted to Twitter by Axios:

Many were moved by Dole’s classy and respectful act:
This is what respect looks like. He’s frail and yet wanted with all his being to stand and show respect.— patsy houston (@houstonpatsy) December 4, 2018
A sacrifice you never wish upon another generation, WW2 made men of impeccable character.— Cody (@PositivistMe) December 4, 2018
Indeed. Too bad some of that couldn’t be bottled and injected into some of those currently serving in office…
Wow. Complete respect. Well done sir 👍— Cool Change 🇺🇸🌴 (@barrettk50) December 4, 2018
A true patriot saluting another true patriot. God bless them both.— Diana Prince (@lovinglife0725) December 4, 2018
Even if you disagreed with Dole, you have to admit that this was a classy move by a classy man.
