5 Former Presidents Came Together For A Good Cause. One of Them Had a Secret Message on His Jacket
Five former presidents gathered in Texas to rise money for hurricane relief this weekend. Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush all wwere present.
Fox News reports:
The concert featured the country music band Alabama, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer ‘Soul Man’ Sam Moore, gospel legend Yolanda Adams and Texas musicians Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen.
The appeal backed by the ex-presidents has raised $31 million since it began on Sept. 7, said Jim McGrath, spokesman for George H.W. Bush.
Texas A&M is home to the presidential library of the elder Bush. At 93, he has a form of Parkinson’s disease and appeared in a wheelchair at the event. His wife Barbara and George W. Bush’s wife Laura Bush were in the audience.
When the national anthem played, all five presidents placed their hands on their hearts. H.W. did not stand because he is bound to a wheelchair.
However, respecting the anthem was not the only patriotic thing George H.W. did. A close up of President Bush shaking President Obama’s hand showed the former president’s true colors. Look:
His buttons are red, white and blue. Patriotic!
Bravo to H.W. Bush for his patriotism.
