Barbara Bush to George W.: Your Father Was the ‘Best President Ever’

It can’t be easy having Barbara Bush for a mother. Last year, she dismissed the idea that her son Jeb Bush could get elected president, saying simply, “We’ve had enough Bushes.” And today, she broke the news to her son, former President George W. Bush that his father — her husband — was the “best president ever.”

Barbara Bush was discussing George H.W. Bush’s pending skydiving jump with her granddaughter Jenna Bush Hager, who serves as a correspondent for the Today show, when she casually mentioned that her husband was the “best president ever.” She added, “He may tell your father that.”

Just then, the younger President Bush wandered over to hear what his mother had to say. “I agree with that,” George W. Bush said, “but I think you’re the second-best First Lady.”

When he added that he has her “right up there with Martha Washington,” Barbara Bush remarked, “I look like her.”

This is apparently what it’s like to be a member of the Bush family.
