When there’s one good example of setting partisanship aside in favor of kindness, then it is the friendship between the Obama and Bush families.
Now, former first lady and”Becoming” writer Michelle Obama further revealed her reverence to the former president and his loved ones, announcing that she’s canceling a part of her book tour to attend President George H.W. Bush‘s funeral. The 41st president passed away on Friday.
“It is important for me to combine with the Bush family in celebrating President George H.W. Bush’s exemplary life. This will sadly preclude my visits to Paris and Berlin,” she composed on Twitter. I have been profoundly touched by the excitement for my own memoir, and I am working to reschedule my trip for the next year”

Due to governmental protocol, Michelle Obama and former president George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush’s eldest son, are seated together at all official acts — a necessity that has the apparently improbable friendship between both families.
In Senator John McCain’s funeral, both shared a silent moment: a very simple swap of a cough drop that shortly after went viral.
“He is my partner in crime at each significant thing where all of the’formers’ collect. So we are together all of the time,” the former First Lady told TODAY back in October.
On Instagram, Obama shared a touching tribute to Bush’s dad, sharing a photograph of herself as well as the 41st president at the White House’s Oval Office. “As a public servant, father, and grandfather, President George H.W. Bush was an outstanding example for us all,” said Obama.
