"Today" show correspondent Jenna Bush Hager continues to use the national morning news program as her family's personal show-and-tell hour after she nominated her dad, who "just happens" to be former President George W.

He seemed genuinely surprised -- or just very, very cold -- when his wife, Laura, creeped up behind him and doused him in ice water, anyway.
