George W. Bush Gushes About Granddaughter on The Tonight Show

Originally posted 11/20/2013 12:45AM

George W. Bush may have stepped away from the political spotlight, but he seems to have won the popular (audience) vote – on Tuesday's The Tonight Show.

The former president stopped by to chat with Jay Leno, matching wits with the host as he unfurled a series of off-the-cuff zingers that left both Leno and his audience in stitches.

Case in point: When the host asked why he finally accepted Leno's invitation to return to the show (this was his fourth appearance on it), a deadpan Bush, 67, slyly jabbed at Leno's upcoming exit from the show.

"You're about to head out to pasture – just wanted to see what you looked like before you got to the gate," Bush cracked.

It must be Mila Hager, whose first Halloween was out of this world, as she dressed up as one of NASA's finest and went trick-or-treating with her grandparents George W. and Laura Bush.

Proud mom Jenna Bush Hager posted two photos on Twitter of the 6-month-old posing with each of her parents. "Grandpa-jefe discussing astronomy with his space babe," she wrote of Mila and the former President.

Wearing a casual black short skirt, flats and carrying a large bag on her shoulder, Hager gently snuggled her growing daughter as they prepared to leave for their day trip.

Martin Luther King's Daughter Launches Celebration of His 'I Have a Dream' Speech

The Rev. Bernice King opened the celebration of her father's famous "I Have a Dream" speech Wednesday with an interfaith service in Washington.

King said that her father, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., is often remembered as a freedom fighter for equal rights and human rights. But she said he was most importantly a man of faith. She says he was a prophet and "faith leader" and it was "the spirit of God that infused that movement."

The faith community must continue to lead every movement for justice and equality, Bernice King said.

For a guy who sang so many sad songs, George Jones left behind a lot of laughs.

There was more humor than sadness at Jones's funeral Thursday at the Grand Ole Opry House as thousands gathered in Nashville – some arriving hours before sunrise –to pay their respects to the man whose voice has defined country music for more than half a century.

Friend after friend related stories of Jones' kindness, his love for his widow, Nancy, who's credited with helping him survive his personal demons later in life, and the funny little moments that will stick with them always.

Barney, the perky black Scottish Terrier who made the White House his home alongside President George W. Bush and his family from 2001 to 2009, has passed away. He was almost 13.

You might remember him from a series of White House videos with puppy pal Miss Beazley – or famously biting a member of the press corps – but Barney Bush was a lifelong-pal to the former First Family, who made the sad announcement on Facebook late Friday.
