Barack Obama and George Bush joined forces to speak at the opening ceremony of the the Smithsonian Institute’s National Museum of African-American History and Culture. Midway through the ceremony, Michelle Obama approached George Bush and gave him a hug that is going viral. Of course, the hug did not look comfortable.
Bush was clapping when Michelle approached Bush and grabbed him. He did not hug back. He just continued to clap.
The fact that he didn’t hug back could suggest that he did not like Michelle Obama randomly grabbing him. But who would? You can check out the video and this photo below. In the photo it almost looks like Bush was trying to escape.
