According to one of his daughters, former President George W. Bush once said that he wanted to do "an interpretive reading" of an angry letter from his mother, former First Lady Barbara Bush.
As the Decider reported, that claim was made by Jenna Bush Hager during Friday's episode of "Today With Hoda & Jenna."
"My dad actually texted me because my grandmother once wrote us both a very mad letter," Bush Hager told co-host Hoda Kotb.
"She was mad at my behavior because I was playing tennis and I was acting like I do and my dad thought it was hilarious, so he was cheering me on," the former first daughter recalled.
This is not the first time Bush Hager has discussed her family on air, as Hello! magazine reported that during an episode from November of 2022 she discussed her mother, former First Lady Laura Bush.
Hager Bush noted that she and twin sister Barbara Pierce Bush regarded the former first lady as their "steady rock," saying, "She was the most calm, we couldn't even understand it, we could not rattle her."
However, Hager Bush did acknowledge that she and her sister occasionally had awkward moments with their mother as teenagers.
"There were times when she would try to be kind of cool, she's going to disagree, but there were times we would go to Florida for the Rangers – the baseball spring training – and we'd be like walking around with her, and she'd be like 'Girls, look, there's some cute boys,'" Hagger Bush recalled.
"Look, Barbara and Jenna, they're cute!' Like we were supposed to go up and be like, 'Hi! Wanna hang?'" the former first daughter laughed.
