Watch George HW Bush Exhibit Humor, Grace and Class With Dana Carvey After He Lost in 1992

One of the frequent refrains of anyone who speaks about the newly late Pres. George H.W. Bush is his excellent sense of humor, which was often self-deprecating.

The man knew how to take a joke and laugh at himself. Nevermore was this trait that we haven’t seen grace the presidency in the past decade more apparent than when “41” called Dana Carvey — who had perfected his impression of Bush on SNL — and invited him to the Christmas celebration at White House following his defeat in 1992.

Carvey is clearly honored and a bit sheepish doing his impression in front of the amused president and his first lady, Barbara.
