During a visit to the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Texas yesterday, former President Clinton took a moment to add a little levity after celebrating this year’s graduates from the Presidential Leadership Scholars program with his successor, former President George W. Bush.
While the differences between the Bush and Clinton administrations were striking, both Bush and his father, former President George H. W. Bush, have become friends with the Clintons. It’s a small club, after all. The two men reminisced about the difficulties of being President on stage together and made a few thinly veiled criticism of the Trump administration, but neither said anything inflammatory or particularly pointed.
But it was Clinton’s playful pose for reporters after the event was over that has captured the internet’s attention.

Unlike Trump White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who infamously hid in the bushes to escape reporters recently, at least when Clinton peeks out from between bushes, he’s just putting lining up in numerical order.
