What was he doing? Watch Bush dance at somber Dallas memorial
Bush awkwardly swayed from side to side while standing next to First Lady Michelle Obama
In what many have described as cringe-worthy viewing, former US President George Bush awkwardly danced to a hymn during a Dallas memorial service on Tuesday.
Bush, who awkwardly swayed from side to side while standing next to First Lady Michelle Obama, appeared completely detached from the solemn nature of the service – held for the five police officers killed in the Dallas shootings last week.
In fact, he stood out as the only person on stage to have been dancing and smiling, while the rest somberly sang "Battle Hymn of the Republic."
On social media, many questioned whether his behavior was appropriate, and commented that Michelle Obama appeared to not know how to react.
please watch Michelle Obama in this clip. I can just hear her saying “this is not the way Lord, this is not the way” https://t.co/PQkapJASaN— kevin daniels (@kevinddaniels) July 12, 2016
Kelly Byrd tweeted: "George Bush dancing to "Glory Glory Hallelujah" at the #DallasMemorial while smirking makes my heart hurt."
"I usually like Bush - but why in the world was he dancing and being goofy during last song? I was cringing," one Twitter user, Roger Cullins, said.
"The look on Michelle Obama's face as Bush starts rocking out at a funeral is everything," Steve Silberman said.
