The five living former presidents of United States — Democrats Barack Obama, Bill Clinton Jimmy Carter and Republicans George HW Bush and George W Bush recently came together for a fundraising event. The former presidents, who were appearing together for the first time since 2013, had assembled on October 21 to raise money for those who were affected by the devastating hurricanes in Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The concert that took place in College Station, Texas, home of Texas A&M University had performances by the country music band Alabama, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer `Soul Man’ Sam Moore, gospel legend Yolanda Adams and Texas musicians Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen and a surprise appearance by Lady Gaga.
While Bush senior’s tweet about singing with Gaga, if he was given a chance, is doing rounds on social media, a video clip from the event has now caught the attention of the people on social media. In the clip, one can see Bush whispering something into Obama’s ears while Clinton was giving a speech. This ‘middle-school kind of behaviour’ has left Twitterati both amused and happy. While one user said “Bush pulling a dad move, cracking a joke to Obama during Clinton’s speech and glancing repeatedly to see his reaction,” another wrote, “W cracking a joke to Obama while Clinton gives a speech is me in middle school.”
And this is how people responded.

Seeing the former presidents interact like this made some really happy indeed.
I LOVE seeing Bush and Obama joke together. They warm my scared heart! This is how Dems and Repubs should interact. Country OVER party!!!

And some even wondered what could the joke be.

Did anyone else notice even Clinton wanted to join in on the laughing, as he holds back his own.
