George W. Bush Handing Michelle Obama A Piece Of Candy During John McCain's Funeral Is Everything

By Mike Walsh

It's an unlikely duo, but former First Lady Michelle Obama and former President George W. Bush, according to People, are extremely fond of each other.

Photos like this one help back that assertion up.

Said Bush of their friendship:

"She kind of likes my sense of humor. Anybody who likes my sense of humor, I immediately like."

The friendship developed because of how often they get seated next to each other at events. When arranging former Presidents and First Ladies, event planners usually go with the President on the left and First Lady on the right then go in order of presidency.

As 43rd President to her husband's 44th, that means Michelle Obama and George W. Bush rub elbows often. Like at Nancy Reagan’s memorial service or the September 2016 dedication ceremony of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC.  

So when they were seated next to each other again at Sen. John McCain's funeral, we got to see a little of the Bush/Obama friendship in action.

With candy.
