George W. Bush saves special treat for Michelle Obama during his father’s state funeral

Melania Trump didn’t get a piece of candy. Neither did Hillary Rodham Clinton, nor Rosalynn Carter, nor their husbands.

Only Michelle Obama did. It’s pretty clear that she is George W. Bush’s favorite.

At his father George H.W. Bush’s state funeral at the National Cathedral, the younger Bush greeted President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump, as well the other living former presidents and first ladies. While he shook hands with the Trumps, Clintons, Carters and Barack Obama, he saved a special treat for Michelle Obama, according to People.

“They were old cough drops,” Obama said. “That’s the funny thing, because they were in the little White House box, and I was like, ‘How long have you had these?’ And he said, ‘A long time, we got a lot of these!’”

Obama canceled book tour appearances in Paris and Berlin for her memoir “Becoming” so that she may attend the funeral services.

“It’s important to me to join the Bush family in celebrating President George H.W. Bush’s exemplary life,” she tweeted. “This will unfortunately preclude my visits to Paris and Berlin. I’ve been deeply touched by the enthusiasm for my memoir, and I’m working to reschedule my trip for next year.”
