5 Former Living Presidents Pal Around, Define #SquadGoals and Raise $31 Million for Hurricane Relief Efforts

Only a few time spans in United States history have produced five former living US Presidents. And even fewer times have brought those men together to put their differences aside and be cordial for the greater good of the American people.

We are living in one of those times. (The last time was in 2013 at the dedication of President George W. Bush's library in Dallas.)

Most recently, Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter came together for a benefit concert to aid victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. The concert, Deep From the Heart: The One America Appeal. awas held at Texas A&M University, which is also where H.W. Bush's library is located. Since the group launched the initiative on September 7, over $31 million from more than 80,000 donors has been raised. Funds from the campaign will be distributed into various charity and relief organizations throughout Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Presidents H.W. Bush and Clinton have been teaming up in regards to disaster aid since Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama are Currently Involved in the World's Most Historical Bromance

On November 4, 1991 President George H.W. Bush joined Presidents Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford and Richard Nixon at the opening of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California. It was the first time five living Presidents gathered together at one time.

On May 1, 2013, in Dallas, Texas, President Barack Obama joined Presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter at the opening of the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum. It was the second time in history five living Presidents gathered together at one time.

But, forget all that proper stuff, because now Presidents just pal around together at golf tournaments like college frat buddies at a reunion weekend.

President Barack Obama Was a Groomsman During a Wedding (Like, The Other Day)

Remember that time Taylor Swift was her childhood best friend's maid of honor and the Internet freaked out?

Well, move over, Taylor, because President Barack Obama was recently a groomsman to his longtime friend and aide Marvin Nicholson. President Obama, of course, was still second in charge to the mother of the bride.

Nicholson wed Helen Pajcic at a private home in Jacksonville, Florida, where Secretary of State John Kerry presided over the vows.

Like, what?

Do you think they made him rent a tux? Did he have steak or chicken? Did he dance with the bridesmaids?

Ellen DeGeneres Forgot Her ID and Almost Couldn't Get Into the White House for Her Presidential Medal of Freedom Ceremony

To quickly sum it up: only Ellen DeGeneres could pull this off.

Before the ceremony, during which President Barack Obama presented DeGeneres and 20 other artists, athletes, activists the Presidential Medal of Freedom, DeGeneres shared a photo of her sitting outside alone on a bench saying, "They haven't let me in to the White House yet because I forgot my ID. #NotJoking#PresidentialMedalOfFreedom."

Only Ellen.


Eventually, DeGeneres got in and was presented the highest honor a civilian can receive, recognizing her extraordinary contributions to world peace, culture, and other national interests.

Of course, before the ceremony, she led the other honorees in the Mannequin Challenge.


When it was finally time for DeGeneres to receive her medal she was clearly emotional, which made just about everyone else emotional as we were reminded to "just keep swimming."
