Former President George H.W. Bush revealed his love for socks — and his surprising familiarity with Justin Bieber — in a Today Show appearance aired to coincide with his 88th birthday.
“I like a colourful sock. I’m a sock man,” Bush said, in an interview with granddaughter Jenna Bush Hager. When it was noted that Bieber is also a “sock man,” Bush was surprised: “Biebs? Is he a sock man? I don’t know much about The Bieber. I never see him, I don’t know what he does.”
When Bush Hager reminded her grandfather that Bieber is the singer of the hit single “Baby,” the 88-year-old Bush said he didn’t think he liked the song. Bush Hager disagreed: “No, I think you like it.”
