Despite an increasingly partisan divide in this country owing to the current occupant of the White House, former presidents have been otherwise successful in showcasing their bipartisan nature.
That phenomenon was again put on full display today when former President George H.W. Bush took a photo with former President Bill Clinton. Bush paid tribute to Clinton’s now-best selling book that he co-wrote with author James Patterson, aptly titled “The President is Missing.”
Bush also donned a pair of socks with Clinton’s face on them. The former president is known for his eclectic collection of socks.

The friendship – made all the more impressive given that Clinton defeated H.W. Bush for the presidency in 1992 – comes in stark contrast to Trump’s relationship with his predecessors. Notwithstanding the fact that he has essentially predicated his presidency on undoing Barack Obama’s legacy, he and his administration have also been vocal in their criticism of the Clintons and the Bushes during what has amounted to a troublingly divisive tenure.
Trump may have billed himself as a unifier, but no person has done more to divide this country than him.
