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.

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…

Megyn Kelly UNCENSORED: It's Not Time to Unify, It's Time to FIGHT | Ep 88

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show." Now, Megyn and Glenn break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, Leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner … and is Fox News finished? Megyn and Glenn reminisce on their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with Donald Trump) and also give a look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. And the best takeaway from her time at NBC? "Jane Fonda was an ass."

How the downfall of socialist Yugoslavia is STRIKINGLY similar to America today

Glenn shares a now-viral video of a woman from Yugoslavia, who says she wants to warn Americans about what could become of our free nation soon. She details the history of her country and explains how leaders there used different tactics and phases to implement socialism so that they could gain total control. And, terrifyingly, the phases she describes are STRIKINGLY similar to the events and changes we've experienced in America over the past year.

Glenn SNAPS over Dem corruption: ‘It’s NOT OVER!’

Glenn has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just for everyone to look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China...the list goes on, but no consequences are ever paid. So while the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, and insists no one can question it, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair. But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands.
