Was George Bush aware of where he was during this video?
A lot of people are asking that question as a video surfaced of Bush swaying merrily during an otherwise somber memorial gathering for the victims of the Dallas shooting.
Standing beside Michelle Obama, Bush is clearly the one in the crowd of people who stands out. Throughout the video, he is swaying, smiling and looking like he’s ready to party. At a few points in time, you can see Michelle looking over, clearly confused about Bush’s actions.
Ever since the event, the internet has been spreading the video to raise eyebrows about just what Bush was thinking during this event.
It seems like Bush just wasn’t on the same page as the rest of the crowd there at all.
If you look around, you can see glances his direction happening throughout the entire video. At some points, it clearly looks as if he is trying to get Laura Bush and Michelle Obama to sway along with him.
Clearly the occasion wasn’t exciting enough for him.
Of course, Twitter and the rest of social media didn’t take long to respond to the incident:
George Bush is dancing. This is it. He forgets why he is here.

What a flashback to 2000-2008, when we had a president who barely knew what was going on around him at any given time.
