Remember that time the Bushes said they couldn’t attend President Trump’s inauguration ceremony because they were too sick?

Well, after being released from a Houston area hospital in late January, former President George H.W. Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush appeared well enough to make a surprise appearance at Super Bowl LI on Sunday.

President Bush, 92, hinted at the coin toss with a tweet on February 1. “Getting fired up for Sunday and #SuperBowl,” he wrote.

The crowd erupted in cheers when the couple was escorted onto the filed by the military. While it was awesome to see them in good spirits, social media had a field day with the tweets and memes.

Forget Brady…. Bush you the real MVP! These were my exact thoughts! #SuperBowl2017 #NotMyPOTUSTrump #PresidentBush
