Billy found himself in trouble after a tape surfaced during the 2016 presidential campaign. The tape was of an interview he conducted with Donald Trump in 2005 when he hosted  "Access Hollywood."

Trump spoke about how you can treat women when you are famous. He infamously said, "You can do anything… grab them by the [expletive]." Bush was heard laughing on the tape at Trump’s unsavory comments.

However, this time the public was not outraged for his past mistakes but rather over his strange outfit choices. One user called the outfit, "tacky and disrespectful."

Many agreed that sneakers and informal attire were not the right decision for the occasion. Some questioned if perhaps his bags were lost.

While others argued that it would be unlikely. However, some people noted that perhaps he simply "forgot his suit."

The Nation will pay its final dues to George H.W. Bush with a solemn cortege. It will begin in Washington D.C. before he is eventually buried in Texas.
