Bush cracks up Obama at hurricane relief concert
Former President George W. Bush made his successor, Barack Obama, noticeably snicker at a joke delivered during Bill Clinton's speech at a hurricane relief benefit concert in Texas.Posted — Updated
As Clinton discussed the importance of offering ongoing support to the communities affected by hurricanes Harvey and Maria, Bush leaned over and quipped something to his successor, immediately eliciting a laugh from a Obama, whose reaction garnered much positive attention on social media.
All five former living US Presidents attended "Deep from the Heart: The One America Appeal" at Reed Arena at Texas A&M University in College Station.
Musician Lady Gaga made an unbilled appearance and tweeted, "Nothing more beautiful than everyone putting their differences aside to help humanity in the face of catastrophe. #OneAmericaAppeal."
The singer made a "generous" donation, said Jim McGrath, a spokesman for George H.W. Bush.
The elder Bush followed up the concert Monday morning with a joke of his own, saying he would have sung a duet with the pop star -- "if asked."
