Look closely (0:22), George W. Bush just slipped Michelle Obama a mint. A nod to Bush sneaking him a mint at the funeral of John McCain. Per protocol, Michelle is usually seated next to George W., today is a rare exception. #GeorgeHWBushFuneral pic.twitter.com/Z11djVty72— Beatrice-Elizabeth Peterson (@MissBeaE) December 5, 2018
George W. Bush has about two or three more times to hand Michelle Obama a piece of candy before y’all completely forget about the Iraq invasion and the 2008 financial crisis altogether.— Donté Stallworth (@DonteStallworth) December 5, 2018

But the post-presidential friendships of Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama has been vital to demonstrating that the office of the presidency transcends party affiliation. And nothing matters more than peaceful transitions.
When he dies I hope some joker sticks George W. Bush’s dead arm straight up out the casket holding candy for Michelle Obama so liberals can go “awww” one last time— paige (@BonerWizard) December 10, 2018
