"Per the Article VIII of the US Constitution, Lady Gaga is President now," jokes one fan.
All five living former presidents came together in a rare appearance Saturday night in College Station, Texas to raise money for relief efforts for the devastating hurricanes that hit Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
The "One America Appeal" concert hosted former presidents Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama. Country music band Alabama, as well as Sam Moore, Yolanda Adams, Lyle Lovett, Robert Earl Keen and Lady Gaga performed for the crowd.
The initiative has raised over $31 million so far, with Gaga announcing she donated $1 million herself at the event.
A pre-taped video message from current President Donald Trump played during the fundraiser event in which he thanked his predecessors for their help in supporting relief efforts.
"As we begin to rebuild, some of America's finest public servants are spearheading the One America Appeal. Through this effort, all five living former presidents are playing a tremendous role in helping our fellow citizens recover," Trump said. "To presidents Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, Melania and I want to express our deep gratitude for your tremendous assistance."
Twitter had a field day following the event, with many comparing Trump with the former Presidents club or wishing Gaga was POTUS herself.

Five presidents— The Seuss is Loose (@SeussIsLoose_) October 22, 2017
But one declined
to accept his invite.
To help in relief,
Trump was unavailable;
But as Commander in Chief,
Surely his reason was unassailable?
Alas, it seems,
Our president deems
It a far better feat
To golf and to tweet.#OneAmericaAppeal
