Former President Clinton posing between two Bush statues goes viral

Former President Clinton was caught hiding in the bushes this week.

A photo from his visit to the George W. Bush Presidential Center sees the 70-year-old Arkansas native peering between tall statues of his predecessor and successor — and it’s making the rounds on Twitter.

Clinton was at the library Thursday to celebrate the graduates from the Presidential Leadership Scholars program, which uses resources from four presidential research centers, the Hill reported.

The image, which has since gone viral, was taken by Clinton’s press secretary Angel Urena.

Presidents Bush and Clinton emphasize importance of humility

President Clinton’s press secretary snapped the photo Thursday.

“Everything’s bigger in Texas,” he wrote beneath it in a Tweet.

In response to the silly photo Clinton jokingly tweeted back: “Note: Not to scale.”

Several Twitter users immediately pointed out just how historically accurate the picture is.

“It is a fairly realistic portrayal of the 1990s,” one person wrote.

Clinton has long enjoyed a friendship with the Bush family, despite beating out George H.W. Bush for re-election in 1992.

In speaking at a scholastic event in Dallas, the younger Bush said it was Clinton’s humility in victory that really jump-started their relationship.

“I think it starts with Bill Clinton being a person who refused to lord his victory over Dad,” he said. “In other words, he was humble in victory, which is very important in dealing with other people.”

He continued on to say there “was a natural ability to respect and like each other. Because he’s called a brother with a different mother.”
