George W. Bush was photographed clearly slipping a piece of candy to Michelle Obama on Wednesday as they waited for his father’s funeral to begin.
The grieving George W. Bush managed to slip former first lady Michelle Obama a piece of candy just before his father’s state funeral got underway – just like he did at Senator John McCain’s service.
Former presidents and the current president of the United States of America gathered in the Washington National Cathedral on Wednesday, December 5, 2018, for the funeral of the 41st president of the United States of America, George W.H. Bush.
His son, former President George W. Bush is close friends with Michelle Obama and they exchanged a beautiful moment just before the state funeral began.
George W. Bush was seen leaning over in front of Donald Trump and Melania Trump to slip a piece of sweet into the hand of former First Lady Mrs Obama.
He was greeting his predecessors and his successors when he passed the sweet to Michelle to the amusement of Barack Obama.
Mrs Obama and husband Barack both smiled to each other as Bush moved on to greet the Clintons and Carters further down the row.
Bush, however, was seated close by with his family on Wednesday to honor his father.
This isn’t the first time something like this has happened between the pair. Back in September George W. Bush was pictured sneaking candy to Michelle Obama during Senator John McCain’s funeral.
The photo went viral at the time and Mrs Obama opened up about her close bond with Bush last month when she spoke of the now-viral moment he was caught handing her a cough drop during McCain’s funeral:
“I didn’t realize at the time that anybody noticed what we were doing.”
“He is my partner in crime at every major thing where all the formers gather… So we’re together all the time and I love him to death.
“He’s a wonderful man. He’s a funny man.
“It was a simple gesture. He was getting a cough drop from Laura – they were old cough drops, they were in a White House box.”
She said the now-viral moment showed that people were ‘hungry’ for unity.
