Baby, baby, baby, oh no he didn't!

While being interviewed on the Today show by his granddaughter, Jenna Bush Hager, former President George H.W. Bush kinda, sorta dissed Justin Bieber—albeit in a playful, funny fashion.

It all started when Hager mentioned that there have been comparisons made lately between the onetime Commander in Chief and the pop star over their appreciation for colorful socks.

"Bieb? Is he a sock man?" a surprised Bush asked when the subject came up. "I don't know much about the Bieber. Never see him, I don't know what he does."

Hagar then proceeded to sing a bit of Bieber's hit tune "Baby" in the hopes of jogging her grandfather's memory.

 "Is that his song? I don't think I'd like it," replied Bush.

It's OK, Biebs. You can at least take comfort in knowing there's a principal in New York who's a fan.
