Despite being vilified unmercifully by the left more than any recent president — not counting the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. — George W. Bush seems to be wearing his post-presidency well.
As seen when a very relaxed, Tommy Bahama-rocking Bush photobombed Fox Sports reporter Emily Jones McCoy during a Texas Rangers game:
A Presidential Photobomb!

And before the haters jump in, Jones was more than thrilled to be on the receiving end of the playful ex-president’s antics:
My most favorite photo bomb ever! https://t.co/RUyKrjeT3z

Bush was once part of an investment group that owned the Rangers and while he no longer has a stake in the team, he remains a big fan.
…and still has a few fans of his own, based on the reaction to the endearing moment — maybe even a closet fan or two.

Why did I despise this man for eight years? https://t.co/wsA5YZELiL

The media might have had something to do with that … hope you’re taking notes.
I know we're supposed to not like him but https://t.co/QfQ4KAigii

@MLBONFOX Yes, he was better than the current WH occupant, but still so glad he’s in the rear-view mirror of history.
