We wish we'd been a fly on the wall for this one.

As Bill Cinton made a speech at a benefit concert in aid of communities affected by hurricanes Maria, Irma and Harvey, George W Bush whispered something to Barack Obama and cracked him up.

As they stifled their giggles, it looked like Clinton was also struggling to compose himself as he addressed the crowd.

The moment garnered quite a reaction with everyone loving the moment between the former presidential trio and wonder what the hell Bush said to elicit that reaction...
