We have finally gotten to the bottom of the question that a lot of people have been asking for a while now, “what’s really up with George W. Bush and Michelle Obama?!”
Bush and Obama are known to “cut up” when they are around each other, from playful hugs to private jokes and the former President says that the love is genuine and real.
“She kind of likes my sense of humor. Anybody who likes my sense of humor, I immediately like,” says Bush in an interview with PEOPLE.“I can’t remember where else I’ve sat next to her, but I probably have a few wise cracks and she seemed to like it okay, I needle her a little bit and around her, I’m fairly lighthearted. [The Obamas] are around serious people all the time and we just took to each other.”
