WATCH: George Bush Spreads Warmth At Solemn Occasion, Slips Michelle Obama Candy (again!) At His Father's Funeral

Written By Daamini Sharma | Mumbai | Published:

With leaders from around the world gathered in Washington on Wednesday for the state funeral of George H.W. Bush, George Bush’s fondness for Michelle Obama was quite evident as the two shared another sweet moment. George W. Bush was spotted once again slipping what appeared to be a candy to Michelle Obama as he walked down the aisle of the National Cathedral to pay his respects to his father.

While greeting the current and former first ladies in attendance at his father’s state funeral — including President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Jimmy Carter and Rosalynn Carter — George W. pulled the sweet out of his pocket to hand it to Michelle, who smiled at the gesture. Take a look:

The pair had shared a similar moment that went viral at the September funeral of John McCain. In a video clip shared on Twitter, Bush took the small parcel from Laura Bush, and passed it to Obama. She took the piece from Bush and whispered "thank you." 

"She kind of likes my sense of humor,'' Bush said in the interview. "Anybody who likes my sense of humor, I immediately like."

“I didn’t realize at the time that anybody noticed what we were doing. President Bush and I… we are forever seat mates because of protocol, that’s how we sit at all the official functions so 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.,” Michelle explained during an October appearance.
