Jenna Bush Hager Says Grandmother Barbara Bush Is 'a Fighter' After Family Revealed She Is in Failing Health

"She's a fighter. She's an enforcer", Hager said, using the family's nickname for her grandmother.

"Just know", Hager continued, "that the world is better because she's in it". The former First Lady has been enjoying ME summers for more than seven decades making southern ME her second home.

Jim McGrath did not elaborate as to the nature of the 92-year-old Bush's health problems. She was an unvarnished purveyor of the truth and motivated us all to be better people. After the visit, the former first lady remarked that numerous poor people she had seen were faring better than before the storm hit. "But I think the fact that they are still together in this and he still says, 'I love you, Barbie, ' every night is pretty remarkable". Bush had come to read to the kids once a year. "I've had the privilege - probably the last four or five years, ever since dad has been going in and out of the hospital - of reading to them".

She made a vague reference to her health in a recent magazine article published in the alumnae magazine of her alma mater, Smith College. "And what was worse, in her eyes, was that I had done it all in front of my mom, my daughters, family guests, and most of all, Gampy, who had been raised with the highest standards of sportsmanship".

Throughout a long life in the public eye, Bush was a fierce advocate for her husband and sons, including former Florida governor and presidential candidate Jeb Bush. She married to George H.W. Bush when she was 19 and while he was a young naval aviator. The couple had six children. The NBC Today anchor appeared on the show Monday, April 16, to share the former first lady's health status.
