When I last interviewed the remarkable Barbara Bush, in February, she was as always smart, funny and engaged, and not afraid of what might be ahead. My thoughts and prayers are with her and her family. https://t.co/nh8bHiS0Ol

Mrs. Bush has always used her extraordinary personality to be the light that this nation has so often needed. Our thoughts and prayers are with her and the entire Bush family right now.
