The sweet moment between George W. Bush and Michelle Obama at John McCain’s funeral

The sweet moment between George W. Bush and Michelle Obama at John McCain’s funeral

A small moment of sunshine came out of a rather emotional day, as an exchange between former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Michelle Obama went viral.

A memorial service for US Senator John McCain was held on Saturday, who passed away on August 25 due to glioblastoma – the medical term for a brain tumour.

As viewers tuned in to watch the service, many noticed a sweet moment between the former President and First Lady, as George was seen delivering a small piece of church candy into the hands of Michelle.

The exchange happened with the two seated next to each other, as Sen. Joe Lieberman spoke about the importance of reaching across the political aisle.

The video shows former President Barack Obama looking at the pair fondly as his wife responds to George with a “thank you".

George has spoken about the Obama’s with high regard in the past, especially Michelle who he said “kind of likes my sense of humour,” he told People magazine in 2017.

“Anybody who likes my sense of humour, I immediately like.”
