What particularly could become the fodder for meme-makers on the Internet, is hard to say. But one thing is for sure that nothing escapes the eyes of the ever vigilant Netizens. So naturally, when former US president Bill Clinton decided to literally hide between two Bushes (statues of George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush), it left everyone in frenzy.
The former POTUS recently visited the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in Dallas, Texas, to celebrate this year’s graduating class from the Presidential Leadership Scholars program. During his visit, he took a moment to hide among the Bushes and was snapped by a reporter and since then the photo has gone viral.
In fact, many Twitterati highlighted that the picture is historically accurate as Clinton’s served as the President in between the father-son Bushes. Reporter Yashar Ali shared the photo of Clinton peeking from behind the statue grinning and who looks like a child between the two large bronze statues.

Many also drew resemblance of the photo with Trump Press Secretary Sean Spicer hiding behind bushes at the White House, that too became a hit meme earlier this year in May.

The photos so loved so much that people began multiple Photoshop battles on Reddit and the results are hilarious, and even NASA tried a hand at this battle!

Clinton proved he’s a sport and latter even replied to one of the users to his reaction of the photo

Clinton has long been a close friend of the Bush family despite defeating George H.W. Bush in the 1992 election. During the moderated event at the library, the two former presidents and proud granddads jokingly tried to pull each other’s legs over who has smarter grandchildren.
