The former first lady, Michelle Obama, defended her friendship with former President George W. Bush, in an interview with Bush's daughter, Jenna Bush, Hajar. The former first lady, 55, stated during her talk on Today's program that while she and Bush (73) may differ on political issues, there are in reality many things in common, which is what most people think Where she says that "our values are the same, we differ on politics, but we do not disagree on humanity", and she adds, "We also do not differ on the concept of love and mercy, and I think this is true for all of us."
The two got to know each other over the past decade, where first heads and ladies belong to a very exclusive community, bound by important events. "I had the opportunity to sit with your father at funeral ceremonies, and at happy and sad events alike, and we shared stories about our children and our parents," Ms. Obama said in the interview.
The Americans certainly noticed their friendship. On many protocol occasions, which included many former presidents and first ladies, Michelle and George were always sitting next to each other, and this gave them the opportunity to talk and share snacks.
In 2018, Bush caught cameras as he presented to Mrs. Obama a candy mint, at the funeral of Senator John McCain. And he did this again, months later, at the funeral of his father, the former President, George HW Bush. On this, Mrs. Obama says: “He has a mindful presence and a sense of humor. He brought me candy, mint, and he brings me such things all the time, and here lies the beauty of George Bush’s spirit.”
Last month, Mrs. Obama appeared on the "Today Show" program, and talked about her husband, the former President, Barack Obama, who is on the mission of getting their 18-year-old daughter (Sasha) to the University of Michigan. "There were tears," she says, "but we did not want to embarrass her in front of her roommates. In the end, after lunch, we told her goodbye."
