PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Liberty Medal wasn’t the only thing former Vice President Joe Biden presented former President George W. Bush with Sunday.
Biden gifted Texas native Bush and his wife, Laura, an Eagles jersey ahead of Sunday night’s Eagles-Cowboys game.
“I’m about to say the medal you’re gonna be presented, but I want to tell you, Mr. President, my wife Jill — who could not be with us tonight — wanted me to simultaneously present you both with a Philadelphia Eagles jersey tonight,” Biden said to loud applause from the audience.
The Bushes later attended the game at Lincoln Financial Field, hopefully — for their own good — in their new gear.
Earlier in the day, Bush was awarded the Liberty Medal at the National Constitution Center for his commitment to helping veterans. The ceremony was met with several protesters.
