    Internet goes berserk after former President George W. Bush grapples with poncho during rain-soaked inauguration address

    Either the poncho was with him or against him in the fight against the rain.

    Former President George W. Bush, 70, attempted to stay dry during the rainy inauguration of the 45th president, Donald J. Trump, on Friday.

    His efforts — wrestling a plastic poncho until it awkwardly shielded him from the raindrops — did not go unnoticed by social media.

    Bush was one of many prominent political figures in attendance, including former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, and of course the Obamas, plus the cowboy-hat-wearing former Vice President, Dick Cheney.

    Bush, however, was on the top of his game with facial expressions, which, naturally, blossomed into hilarious memes. With a camera in his face shortly before being introduced, he breathed heavily, looked down and gave an eyebrow-raising grin.

    I love Dick Cheney's reactions behind Bush. He goes from slight amusement, to quiet reflection on the absurdity of what he is witnessing.

    Man, I miss this. Being embarrassed by our President cuz he acted like a money instead of being terrified for the interns that worked for him.

    Dick Cheney was using his mind to control the plastic to screw with Bush.

    Yeah. Different for different folks, but I wouldn't necessarily hold up Trump as the best counterexample.

    I've heard of no health problems with Bush Jr. Bush Senior and his wife have been in the hospital this week but last I heard they were both doing better.
