Former President George W. Bush had a big problem at Donald Trump's inauguration. It had nothing to do with politics, but rather with how to put on a poncho.

The 43rd President of the United States recently stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where he discussed many things, including his strong bond with Michelle Obama. But, the host made sure to ask him the ultimate burning question.

"The poncho was a problem," joked DeGeneres. "Had you put one on? Is that the first time?"

Laughing, Bush responded, "Yeah, it looks like it."

DeGeneres then wondered if the issue might run in the family, showing images of his mother, former first lady Barbara Bush, also dealing with the poncho conundrum at the inauguration.

"It's genetics," quipped Bush, who was then presented with an official presidential poncho, complete with easy instructions. <iframe src="//widgets.ellentube.com/videos/0_0457ib9h/" width="575" height="324" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" class="" scrolling="no" resize="0" replace_attributes="1" name=""></iframe>ßm[ó¯}ï6ñ·7Õþ^{‡^ë{ïž½ÛMýÛ½¼
