bitchy | George W Bush & the poncho that got here for him grew to become an inaugural meme


Let’s face it, in all probability the happiest particular person on the inauguration of the 45th President of the Untied States was former president George. W. Bush. Apart from the unlucky ill-health of his dad and mom, he possible sat again because the occasions occurred and watched his personal approval scores rise. As Aziz Ansari instructed in his SNL monologue, who ever thought we’d be sentimental for W?

Anyway, one of many pitfalls of retirement is that you just fall off form with many unusual each day issues. Apparently for W that included “coping with rain-gear” final Friday. And I get it, swaths of plastic will be arduous! A sea of darkish coloured umbrellas on the balcony of The Capital constructing may need appeared funereal, a metaphor I think about the present administration wish to keep away from.

We all know W was smitten with Michelle Obama and I feel he was very impressed with Pres. O.’s time in workplace. His relationship with the Clintons drastically improved as a result of relationship between his father and Invoice Clinton. I desperately need to imagine that this was his passive aggressive method on weighing in on the present president taking the oath. Perhaps that’s an excessive amount of credit score, however that’s what I need to imagine. Plus, don’t inform me Pres. Obama doesn’t know full nicely what’s happening behind him. I wouldn’t be stunned if Mrs. O and W had a wager going to see who might make him chortle.

This was my favourite caption:

Watch it because it unfolds (

I stole the ‘… in Time of Orange’ joke from CB, btw.

I really like the facet Mrs. O brings out in him:
