If we go by reports, the two have been known to share genuine friendly moments when appearing together. Bush was quoted in an earlier interview answering to a question related to the former US First Lady, “She kind of likes my sense of humor.” He further adds, “Anybody who likes my sense of humor, I immediately like.” Putting the jokes aside, seeing opposing political leaders on the same page and being friendly towards each other is so refreshing. We can see it as a gentle reminder to treat even political opponents with politeness and respect, which thankfully includes passing a piece of candy to satisfy a dry throat.
