Former first lady Laura Bush is calling 93-year-old former President George H.W. Bush’s groping incidents “very innocent.”
Author Christina Baker Kline and actresses Jordana Grolink and Heather Lind have all independently verified that Bush has a ‘groping’ problem, at least when it comes to beautiful women standing right next to his wheelchair.
“I’m just sad we’ve come to this,” Bush said in an interview with CNN. “That was something that was very, very innocent that he’s been accused of. But I know he would feel terrible. He would never hurt anybody.”
Last week, Kline penned a Slate op-ed detailing her run-in with the former president.
“You wanna know my favorite book?” Bush whispered to Kline before he “put his arm around me, low on my back.”
“His comic timing was impeccable, ‘David Cop-a-feel,’ he said, and squeezed my butt, hard, just as the photographer snapped the photo. Instinctively, I swiped his hand away,” Kline wrote.
Heather Lind wrote, “When I got the chance to meet George H. W. Bush four years ago to promote a historical television show I was working on, he sexually assaulted me while I was posing for a similar photo. He didn’t shake my hand. He touched me from behind from his wheelchair with his wife Barbara Bush by his side. He told me a dirty joke. And then, all the while being photographed, touched me again.”
The former president has apologized to “anyone he has offended,” saying that he intended his actions “to be in a good-natured manner.”
Maybe so, but in this day and age touching women inappropriately is obviously off-limits, even for wheelchair-bound 93-year-old former presidents.
However, the media furor and faux outrage over the whole thing is a tad bit hypocritical. BizPac Review’s chief editor Kyle Becker writes:
It’s just all-too-convenient to make the charge years later, after Hollywood is getting so much heat, even it is a part of the #metoo movement. It switches attention from creeps like Harvey Weinstein, and the numerous celebrities who “knew,” and onto a former Republican president. Coincidence? You decide.
After all, these are the same Hollywood elitists who turned a blind eye to Bill Clinton taking advantage of then 22-year-old intern Monica Lewinsky, whom he had sexual relations with in the Oval Office. They all lined up to vote for him in 1996, and even mocked middle America for caring about it.
If the Hollywood left wants the heartland to care about these issues, maybe they should spend less time mocking Christians and ordinary citizens, and spend more time engaging in introspection.
