Former President George W. Bush had five hilarious choice words to describe President Donald Trump’s speech on Inauguration Day 2017: “That was some weird shit.”

The scene for the speech was already interesting, given that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whom Trump pledged to sic a “special prosecutor” on, was sitting just feet from Trump as he addressed the nation as president for the first time.

Bush, who made headlines that afternoon after struggling with a pancho, was thought to have left without giving comment. According to three people who spoke with Bush after Trump’s address, Bush reportedly described Trump’s speech with one sentence: “that was some weird shit.”
