Bush can be seen digging an item out of his left pocket as he approached the front pew of the National Cathedral, where President Trump and first lady Melania Trump, as well as three former Democratic presidents and first ladies, were seated.

Bush appeared to hand former first lady Michelle Obama something at his father's funeral, recreating a moment from Sen. "This photo, taken Monday, is courtesy the Senate Press Photographers" Gallery pool", tweeted Bush spokesman Jim McGrath, who included a picture of the crowd surrounding Bush's casket as he lay in state at the Capitol Rotunda.

Bush then shook hands with former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, causing her to smile when he passed her what appeared to be a piece of candy.
