On Friday, the nation mourned the death of John McCain, and in Washington D.C. hundreds gathered to hear the eulogies honoring the Arizona senator’s life.
While listening to Senator Joe Lieberman deliver his remarks, Michelle Obama, who was seated in between her husband Barack and George W. Bush seemed to want something sweet. Apparently, Laura Bush, who was seated on the other side of her husband had candy and had George pass her some.
In a clip of endearment widely shared online, former president George W. Bush gave Michelle Obama a piece of candy during a speech by former Sen. Joe Lieberman at Sen. John McCain's funeral. Laura Bush hands the former president the candy, who then passes it to Obama. Obama takes the candy and whispers "thank you."

The unlikely, close friendship between Michelle Obama and George W. Bush is one of my favorite political joys that makes me smile. I’ve seen it before, and we see it at today’s service.— Vanessa Rumbles (@VanessaRumbles) September 1, 2018

The camera just cut away from Joe Lieberman's joke about John McCain to Laura Bush just passing a hard church candy to Michelle Obama thru George Bush and it might be the most amazing thing I've ever seen. #NationalCathedral— Amee Vanderpool (@girlsreallyrule) September 1, 2018

Welp, looks like these BBFs are continuing their legacy. Good to see there still some civility in American politics, especially these days.
