Set your differences aside about how you feel about former President George W. Bush, seeing him gush about former First Lady Michelle Obama is cute!
We all saw the photo makes its rounds on the internet where Michelle gave Bush a big hug sharing a rare moment together. Now the former president is sharing more details on how the Bush and Obamas went from bitter rivals during the 2008 Election to friends today.
“She kind of likes my sense of humor. Anybody who likes my sense of humor, I immediately like,” Bush said of Obama.
“I can’t remember where else I’ve sat next to her, but I probably have a few wise cracks and she seemed to like it okay,” he recalled. “I needle her a little bit and around her, I’m fairly lighthearted. [The Obamas] are around serious people all the time and we just took to each other.”
