The Daily Briefing host Dana Perino joined Fox & Friends Saturday morning to remember George H.W. Bush.

Bush, who served as the 41st president of the United States, passed away at the age of 94 Friday night.

Perino, press secretary under President George W. Bush, said the biggest honor of her life is being able to say she knew the 41st president.

"You really felt like he did know you," she said. "It's really heartbreaking."

Perino added that George H.W. Bush "accepted the call" no matter what.

"He was at the RNC, he was at the CIA, he was at the United Nations, he was vice president, he was president," she said. "And, I would argue, set the best example for how to conduct yourself in the post-presidency."

Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume also joined “Fox & Friends” Saturday to reflect on George H.W. Bush's life.

"The word that comes to mind when I think of him is 'character’," he said. "This was an extraordinarily gracious man who was humble in victory and similarly humble in defeat."

Hume said that even as kind as Bush was "he had steel in him."

He said that when it comes to party politics, Bush's legacy in Washington was that he was never bitter.

"He was sharp, and he made a lot of friends across the aisle," Hume said. "He played rough when he had to but he was never a bitter partisan."
