Spokesperson Confirmed George H.W. Bush Groping Story, Offered This Explanation

Two women have claimed this week that former President George H.W. Bush took advantage of being next to them while taking a photograph by touching them inappropriately and telling crude jokes.

A statement from Bush’s spokesperson confirmed incidents like what they described.

“To try to put people at ease, the president routinely tells the same joke — and on occasion, he has patted women’s rears in what he intended to be a good-natured manner,” the statement said. “Some have seen it as innocent; others clearly view it as inappropriate. To anyone he has offended, President Bush apologizes most sincerely.”

Now 93 years old, Bush has been in a wheelchair for the past half-decade.

“Have you seen him lately?” Glenn asked on today’s show, pointing out that Bush hardly has the physical stamina to be cast as a dangerous sexual predator. “It’s not like he’s out at night working the clubs.”

GLENN: So he was a war hero, he was the 41st president of the United States, and now he can add this to his resume, he is a rear patter. George H.W. Bush is now under attack for patting a woman's behind in 2014.

Now, I for one can't believe I just said that sentence, but I did. Welcome to America, 2017.

Yesterday, the actress Heather Lynn accused H.W. Bush of patting her on the rear and making a joke.

Quote, I got the chance to meet George H.W. Bush four years ago to promote a historic television show I was working on. He sexually assaulted me. 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 right by his side. He then told me a dirty joke. And then, all the while, while being photographed, he touched me again. Barbara rolled her eyes as if to say, not again.

Now, lock the kids up. I know we're talking about sexual assault here, but here's the dirty joke: Do you know who my favorite magician is? David Copafeel. Wow, terrible joke. For many reasons. One of which, David Copperfield is not even relevant anymore. It shows you how old he is.

Bush was forced to issue a statement from his office on the matter that reads: At the age of 93, President Bush has been confined to a wheelchair for five years. His arms fall on the lower waist of people with whom he takes picture. To try to put people at ease, he routinely tells the same joke. And on occasion, he has patted women's rear ends in what he intended to be a good-natured manner. Some have seen this as innocent, others clearly view this as inappropriate.

To anyone who he has offended, President Bush apologizes sincerely. Okay. The guy is 93. Have you seen him lately? It's not like he's out at night working the clubs.

Even if he was -- even if he was interested in sex, it ain't happening, baby. Bush is not a sexual predator. That was not a sexual assault.

You cannot put George H.W. Bush, 41, with the likes of Harvey Weinstein. It's like apples, comparing them to bananas. Where have we heard that? I'm sure no one would do that.

They would never call a banana an apple, would they? Of course not. Because they're clearly not the same.

Bill O’Reilly: ‘INSANE’ how badly Kamala & Biden handled border crisis

Vice President Kamala Harris — tasked by President Biden to handle the current border crisis — is currently on, what Bill O'Reilly calls, 'the befuddlement tour.' So not only has Joe Biden ruined the border situation beyond repair, O'Reilly explains, he's now also chosen somebody who seemingly is incapable of solving problems to fix the problem. O'Reilly says it's 'INSANE' how badly they've handled this situation and that it's time for Americans to take a stand, show the government some backlash, and finally say 'enough!'

Biden's Hostile Takeover: The Great Reset of America

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Was Dr. Fauci involved in a COVID cover-up?

Released emails between virologist Christian Anderson and Dr. Fauci during early 2020 show Dr. Fauci was aware several, competent doctors believed the COVID virus contained genomes 'inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory.' Or, in other words, they didn't believe it simply evolved from a bat. So, then, what changed? And why was Fauci so concerned when a 2012 paper regarding his interest in 'gain of function' research began to circulate online? It's all just speculation for now, but Glenn shares HIS theory: Fauci may have been involved in a major COVID-related coverup…

THIS is why Dr. Fauci’s emails ELIMINATE his credibility

Glenn breaks down the recent Dr. Fauci scandal, explaining WHY his recently released emails are so damning. Not only do his correspondence disprove the theory he was being censored by the Trump administration, but they eliminate any credibility he may have once had on the COVID pandemic, too. Even further: they confirm he lied under oath. The mainstream media may want you to think he's 'Mother Theresa in pants,' but these emails tell a MUCH different story. So, is it finally time to #FireFauci?
