George HW Bush just passed a modern day record for presidents – and it’s not for groping women

Former President George H. W. Bush made history on Saturday, and he didn’t have to do a thing.

Bush achieved a milestone in history and in his own life as he officially became the longest living U.S. president.

At 93 years and 166 days old, the former president stepped into the spot that was previously held by former President Gerald Ford, The Daily Caller reported. Ford died in 2006 at 93 years old.

Bush served as vice president under former President Ronald Reagan, who held the third spot for longest living president.

Former President Jimmy Carter, at 93,  is now the next oldest living president, though he is 111 days younger than Bush.

Bush served as the 41st President of the United States from 1989 to 1993, losing his re-election bid to former President Bill Clinton. When his son, George W. Bush was elected in 1999, the two became the second father and son duo to serve as U.S. presidents, after former Presidents John Adams and his son, John Quincy Adams.

The elder Bush was recently in headlines as several women separately accused the former president of inappropriately groping them while taking a photo. The former president apologized to anyone he may have offended but indicated that he had not intended any distress to any of the women.
