Former President George W. Bush may want to opt for an umbrella the next time he’s out in the rain.
It was drizzly Friday as President Donald Trump was inaugurated as 45th president of the United States, so many of the attendees in the Washington, D.C., crowd donned rain gear of one type or another. But all didn’t go according to plan when the 43rd president of the United States tried to put on a poncho:

In a series of photos, a Reuters photographer captured Bush struggling to put on the rain gear before flashing a slight smile.

The Internet, predictably, loved it:

It’s not the first Bush public appearance to become Internet fodder recently. In July, Bush awkwardly swayed as a choir sang during a memorial for five slain police officers in Dallas.
Bush smiled, swayed and moved his arms up and down while holding the hands of wife Laura Bush and first lady Michelle Obama during the Dallas Police Choir’s rendition of ‘‘The Battle Hymn of the Republic.’’Material from the Associated Press was used in this report.
