George W. Bush is nothing if not a good sport. And in no better way was that illustrated when the former President donned a Santa suit for a hospital visit in Dallas.
The 68-year-old was handing out toys at the Children's Medical Center of Dallas to patients who have to spend Christmas at the facility.
The family that posted the picture of Bush to Facebook lost one of their twin daughters earlier this year to a heart disease called restrictive cardomyopathy.
Is that you, Mr President? George W. Bush hands out toys at the Children's Medical Center of Dallas on Saturday
'Guess who just came and gave Emily a Christmas present dressed in a Santa suit with Secret Service and all?!?!?.......... Pres. George Bush,' mom Natalie Smith posted to Facebook on December 16.
Her daughter, Shayde, died in January.
Her surviving daughter, Emily, has undergone a heart replacement, but is constantly in and out of hospital as her body rejects the organ.
The family have been raising money for Emily's medical expenses on GoFundMe.
There were reports on Twitter that Bush's secret service detail dressed as elves to accompany him.
Bush, who was succeeded by Barrack Obama in 2009, has lifetime secret service protection, as do all former Presidents.

I hate his politics, but I loved this. He made his secret service dress as elves Unfortunately, as Bush always does, he didn't bring any professional photographers so all we have are the families pictures. Either way it's freaking adorable. I can see now that this man really didn't want to be president at all, it's a shame he was used, he seems like a lovely person. (which I expect to be how I will feel about obama once he is out of office, being president really changes people for the worse)
