"The initial moments were total chaos," Bush told Roberts. "The paparazzi were never interested in me before, and now they're outside the gate and ready to go. But once we settled and got to connect, there was a powerful moment — my now 16-year-old daughter Mary called me and she was in tears. She was really upset."

"I said, 'Mary, it's going to be OK. You know, don't worry.' And she said, 'No, why were you laughing at the things that he was saying on that bus? Why were you playing along with that, dad? It wasn't funny,'" he recalled. "I said, 'Mary, I am sorry, and there is no good answer for that.'"
