As former Presidents Barack Obama and George Bush were seated next to former First Ladies Michelle Obama and Laura Bush, people were surprised when they say President Bush get some candy from his wife then pass some candy to Michelle Obama.
In a time when Democrats and Republicans seem to have nothing in common, the show between the former leaders has touched people in many ways. A photo mashup showing touching moments between President Bush and Michelle Obama quickly went viral.

Things have become tense in America due to political differences that have been highlighted under President Donald Trump’s administration. Even during Senator McCain’s eulogy, his daughter Meghan McCain made a remark about President Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) and President Trump as well as First Lady Melania Trump were not invited to attend.
Even though some thought Meghan McCain’s eulogy was politically fuelled and President Trump and the First Lady were publicly shamed with their ban, people couldn’t notice how close former President George W. Bush and Michelle Obama were.
The pair got along famously and people are finding the duo inspiration in dark political times. Not only did the videos and photos go viral but many noticed that whenever there are political events where both the Bushes and Obamas attend, former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Michelle Obama can be seen chatting, laughing and having a blast.
