- Former presidents, George Bush and Barack Obama had people on social media wondering what the joke they shared recently was
- Five ex-presidents of the United States reunited as part of a fundraiser to help people that suffered damages from the hurricanes that hit the country weeks ago
People on Twitter thought about a moment shared between Bush and Obama while Bill Clinton was giving a speech at the recent event.
The moment was captured on camera while Bill Clinton gave his speech of the night and the other presidents were waiting for their turn behind him.
While Clinton spoke, Bush whispered some sort of joke to Obama, and he couldn’t hold back his laugh even though he tried really hard.
The 44th president looked proud about his joke as he kept checking to see Barack’s reaction while trying to suppress his own laugh.
Unfortunately for many curious, we probably won’t know what was being said that made both men laugh comradely in a strange moment shared between presidents that come from two different parties.
People on twitter classified the moment as a ‘dad move,’ and a ‘middle school move.’
Some clearly enjoyed the interaction, while others found it disrespectful and childish while pointing out it wasn’t the time or the place to be joking around.
However, it’s refreshing to see politicians being amicable with each other while being in an environment created to raise awareness about such an important issue as hurricanes.
According to Bustle, since Trump took the presidency of the country, Obama’s and Bush’s popularity has been rising while Trump’s has been decreasing.
They stated that:
‘As of June, Bush and Obama are viewed favorably by 59 and 63 percent of Americans, respectively.’
The even from Sunday was the first time the ex-presidents Bush, Clinton, Obama, Carter and George H.W. Bush reunited on stage since 2013.
The fundraiser event was part of a bigger campaign released by the group to help the victims from Hurricanes Irma, Harvey, and Maria.
According to the Chicago Tribune, they have raised $31 million until now.
