George Bush is peak dad in this clip
There are two parts to the “Dad Joke.” Part one is the actual telling of the terrible joke. Part two is the anxious anticipation of the response to said joke. Anyone who has a partner or father who tells terrible jokes knows this. That’s why this clip of George Bush telling a joke to Barack Obama during Bill Clinton’s speech at Saturday night’s “Deep From the Heart: The One America Appeal” event is going so viral right now.
It’s peak dad.

I mean, look at his face:
He’s really happy with himself:
Just about everyone is relating to this clip in one way or another. We all know we laugh loudest when it’s most inappropriate, right? And now we know that it happens to all of us.
My man Obama is holding back that laugh with his entire soul. That's me when I'm reading funny tweets in a meeting… https://t.co/7wQP9dkKUl

Mostly, people are probably just happy to look at something concerning a president that finally makes them laugh, instead of weep into their pillow.
I never, in a million years, thought I would miss George W Bush… https://t.co/QHGU35wFzy

And looking at Obama’s smile can make you believe the world isn’t disintegrating… if even just for a moment.
