On Thursday, in Texas at the George W. Bush Presidential Library, former President Bill Clinton posed between statues of his predecessor, George H.W. Bush, and successor, George W. Bush. The photo was posted on Twitter by Clinton’s press secretary, Angel Ureña, and quickly went viral.

Many people on social media made connections to the Washington Post story in May about White House press secretary Sean Spicer hiding from reporters in the bushes outside the White House after the firing of former FBI Director James Comey.
Clinton and George W. Bush were there to co-host a panel at the library to celebrate this year’s class of Presidential Leadership Scholars (PLS) Program.
During the moderated event, Clinton and Bush talked about their presidencies, offered advice to those who wish to serve for higher office and even joked about who has the smarter grandchildren.
Here is one of the moments of the event:
Clinton: The best thing for a politician "is to be consistently underestimated"
Bush: "I was pretty good at that" https://t.co/W1w5gtz3B4

Bill Clinton evidently learned a thing or two from Spicer about the camouflage potential of bushes. https://t.co/mIx2ugOOyE
