Barbara Bush Told Hilarious Joke About George W Bush Before She Died

Amber Athey | Media and Breaking News Editor

Shortly before she passed away, First Lady Barbara Bush told her doctor a hilarious joke about her son, President George W. Bush.


George W. Bush and his wife Laura relayed the joke during a Wednesday morning interview on Fox Business Network.

Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo asked the Bush family if they were able to say goodbye to Mrs. Bush before she passed away, and George W. said they went to visit her a little over a week ago.

“We had a wonderful visit,” the former president said. “She was strong, lucid, funny — she and I were needling each other when the doctor came in.”

“She turned to the doctor and said, ‘You wanna know why Bush W. is the way he is?’ and the doctor looked somewhat surprised,” he continued. “She said, ‘because I drank and smoked while I was pregnant with him.'”

The Bush family, Bartiromo, and the Fox Business producers all got a good laugh out of Mrs. Bush’s joke.

“She’s funny and we had a beautiful visit with her,” George W. said.
