GWB just took a mint out of his pocket and handed it to Michelle Obama.

Her reaction was priceless.

1. Damn it- why is he suddenly likeable?

Well I guess if Michelle likes him...

I thought that was cute.

5. Time tends to do that.

People forget about the bad. For all intents and purposes, he's supposedly a very nice person outside of politics.

Then, the politics come in.

Its little things like this small gesture to remind me of the good side of humans.

10. Everybody is likeable in comparison to Trump

Trump is the best thing that ever happened to W because it makes everyone forget what a douchebag he was.

11. Some people (not trump) grow up.. and get better.

I hated his policies and the consequences of his presidency, but dont believe he is irredeemable as a human being. Life is long. People sometimes get wiser or less stupid.

The line between good and evil runs through every mans heart.

2. Didn't he do that previously?

I seem to recall him giving her candy at some other event, and the press fawning over it. Not knocking it, but I think he got good reviews for it last time and it's his go-to with Michelle.

8. There's a story behind that

I didnt realize at the time that anybody noticed what we were doing. President Bush and I we are forever seat mates because of protocol, thats how we sit at all the official functions so he is my partner in crime at every major thing where all the formers gather, she explained. So were together all the time, and I love him to death. Hes a wonderful man. Hes a funny man.

But there is one key detail people missed. The Altoids were apparently from a place they both called home the White House.

I will add they were old cough drops. Thats the funny thing, because they were in the little White House box, and I was like, How long have you had these? And he said, A long time, we got a lot of these!'

9. I hope Barack never shares the same camaraderie with melania.

Better yet, I hope the trumps are eventually excluded from official functions where all the formers gather. Felons should lose their former status.
