George W. Bush and Barack Obama cracked each other up during Clinton speech

George W. Bush and Barack Obama shared a lighthearted moment over the weekend that the middle schooler in all of us can appreciate.

Bill Clinton was giving a speech during the "Deep From the Heart: The One America Appeal" concert for hurricane relief hosted by all the living former presidents on Saturday when Bush and Obama shared a private joke and stifled laughs behind him.

The smirking duo looked like kids in the back of the classroom trying to keep a straight face when the teacher is talking.

Those three presidents were joined by Bush's father, George H.W. Bush, as well as Jimmy Carter and surprise guest Lady Gaga for the benefit at Texas A&M's Reed Arena in College Station, Texas.

It was the latest fun-loving moment between the former presidents from opposite sides of the political spectrum. The two also shared some laughs with Clinton during an epic hangout at last month's Presidents Cup golf tournament in New Jersey.

They came together for a good cause on Saturday night, as proceeds will go toward repairing the damage caused by hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.

Since launching their One America Appeal initiative on Sept. 7, the ex-presidents have raised $31 million for relief efforts, said Jim McGrath, spokesman for George H.W. Bush.

That is definitely something to smile about.
