Fox News political analyst and longtime Washington journalist Brit Hume said former First Lady Barbara Bush was a "woman of enormous character."

Bush died Tuesday night at the age of 92.

Hume, who covered the Bush 41 White House, said Mrs. Bush also "adored her husband."

"I can only imagine the sense of loss he feels tonight," Hume said of former President George H.W. Bush.

Hume said Mrs. Bush was also "not a mellow first lady" and a person of strong views, but that she managed to be a noncontroversial first lady.

"People saw her character and admired her, and she was indeed admirable," he said.

Hume told Tucker Carlson several sweet and entertaining stories about his encounters with Mrs. Bush.
