During the funeral for John McCain back in September, George W. Bush was seen pulling sweet Grandpa moves by sneaking a piece of candy to Michelle Obama, who was sitting beside him. Bush Jr. and Michelle recreated their funeral candy moment again today during the state funeral for Bush’s late father and former President, George H. W. Bush.
It happened after Bush Jr. and Laura Bush walked in and greeted the line-up of ex-Presidents (and Donald Trump) in the front row. Bush shook Trump’s hand, then Melania Trump’s, then Barack Obama, and when he got to his girl Michelle, he took her hand and palmed her a candy.

That’s enjoyable, but it doesn’t hold a candle to the dying inside look on Melania’s face after she realizes she got the “Aaaaand none for Gretchen Wieners” treatment. Speaking of dying inside, you know Trump was so pissed that he wasn’t given any special attention via pocket candy, and right after he got Hillary Clinton shade. I bet if he had his phone on him, he would have whipped it out and tweeted something bitter at Bush Jr. and Michelle for excluding him from their special club. “Whatever, I don’t need your sad candy. I’ve got my own, better candy. And yes I’m talking about an escort named Candy, and she’s petite, sweet, and very discreet.”
