Michelle Obama, Bush share sweet moment
- There was a moment from the funeral.
Bush 43, he's greeting the presidents.
He hands Michelle Obama a piece of candy,
which is something that he did at John McCain's funeral.
Such a small moment, but it really--
that camaraderie stands in such contrast to what
we saw with President Trump.
DOUGLAS BRINKLEY: It absolutely does.
And 43 and Michelle just adore each other.
They're cute together all the time.
- Yeah, they are.
DOUGLAS BRINKLEY: They do photographs,
and they have a genuine affection for each other.
And so that was obviously a pre-ordained thing, that I'll
give you a candy again.
- What do you make of that, that friendship--
that unlikely friendship?
DOUGLAS BRINKLEY: That it's a little flirtatious,
and a little bit of the feeling that I think
it must be refreshing for Michelle Obama
not to dislike a president that's a Republican.
And her disdain for Donald Trump is legendary.
Her memoir just came out where she says, I blame--
I'll never forgive Donald Trump for my kids' safety.
Yet her heart is very open to George W. Bush.
