George W. Bush on his friendship with Michelle Obama: ‘We just took to each other’
Anyone who thinks Republicans and Democrats can’t get along needs only to look at the friendship between George W. Bush and Michelle Obama.
The former Republican president has opened up about his wise-cracking relationship with the former Democratic first lady, which was captured in a sweet photo from the opening of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in September.
“I’m kind of a needler, and she handles it pretty well,” Bush told Ellen DeGeneres on her show Wednesday. “(The friendship) surprised everybody. That’s what’s so weird about society today, (the surprise) that people on opposite sides of the political spectrum can actually like each other.”
