Bush Praises Obama on Facebook

Looks like George W. Bush has finally got the hang of “the Internets.” The 43rd president appeared in a webcast interview with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg Monday night. Asked why he decided to appear on Facebook, George W. Bush told Zuckerberg, "Because you've got a lot of people paying attention to us, and I'm trying to sell books." He praised President Obama during the hour-long discussion on Facebook Live, saying that he approves of his successor’s positions on Afghanistan and education. Dubya also complimented Zuckerberg’s entrepreneurship, and the young billionaire said he admired Bush for doing what he considered right.
