There is nothing as adorable as the friendship between these former leaders of the United States. Recently during the memorial service of Senator John McCain, the camera caught Former US president George Walker Bush playfully passing on a candy to former First Lady Michelle Obama. The video went viral in no time and left the Twitterati bemused. According to the New York Post, the exchange fittingly happened during former Senator Joe Lieberman's speech at the Washington National Cathedral about the importance of reaching across political lines.
Bush, who was seated in the front pew with his wife and former First Lady Laura Bush, sneaked a piece of candy from her and handed it over to Obama who was sitting next to him. While the two come from different parties, the fondness they feel for each other definitely made many people emotional.
I'd like to think that moments like this between W. Bush and Michelle Obama are what McCain was hoping for. pic.twitter.com/vYE3A46Ity— Brenna Williams (@brennawilliams) September 1, 2018

Every time I see them together there is a similar moment. I have to think they genuinely kinda’ like one another.— Lisa Robinson (@LAR65) September 1, 2018
Michelle took an interest in his artwork, something dear to his heart, and a friendship was formed. This does *my* heart good.— Tina (@TinaBinaFace) September 1, 2018
The Bush & Obama families have been friends for years. I think Sen McCain was hoping speakers from different parties-, respected him & were willing to compromise for our country. He was definitely calling for unity. Hope we can unite. Too many refuse to accept facts.— PJ Yusten (@GagaEJ) September 1, 2018
