Skip to comments.Headline News' Robin Meade To Tandem Jump With George H.W. Bush For His 85th Birthday

George H.W. Bush is going to celebrate his 85th birthday Friday in style. Bush Sr., is a veteran skydiver has made some tough jumps especially as a 20-year-old Navy pilot in World War II when he was shot down over the Pacific. But the sky dive he will make on his birthday should be a lot more fun with Headline News anchor Robin Meade strapped to him for a tandem jump. I guess this will be Georges Private Stimulus Package. In return Meade will get to interview Bush Sr. before they make the jump.
It is both a thrill and an honor, Meade said in a release. Anchoring four hours of live television is an adrenaline rush most days, but this tandem jump with President Bush will be a new level of excitement, Im sure.
And Georges wife probably wont be too jealous as the cast of playhouse production of A Chorus Line were invited to the Bushes private vacation home in Maine yesterday to celebrate Barbaras 84th birthday.
I would like to jump Robin Meade.
It looks like she’s going to be bringing along her own cushioning devices in case something goes awry.
I wonder if the current Commander-in-Chief (make that Commander-in-Chickensuit) has ever used a parachute. He’d probably be scared-white!
Lucky fella...hold on tight George!
Or flotation in case of a water landing - re: Mae-West.
WOW! George should feel like He is in Heaven tied to Robin!:-) Plase tell Us that Robin is at least a Conservative! Please!
Maybe there IS justice in this world.
I don’t know about this. with Buh Sr.’s bad hips, he’s always had a professional skydiver to cushion his landing. Who’s going to cushion the two of them. Robin Meade? Something doesn’t jive here. Plus it will be dangerous for both of them. Don’t get it.
I hate CNN but Meade is just enough...just enough for me to watch more than 1 minute of AHN.
And if the chute don’t open it will be one helluva way to go, talk about making two into one and its not even adultery. I guess George Sr. has really thought this out well.
41, sir, you sly dog you. Well played, Mr. President. Well played indeed.
I’d hit it!
I wouldn’t jump out of a plane regardless of who I was tied to.
No reason Robin can't absorb most of the (very minimal) impact. Jumping a civilian 'chute is about like stepping off a 3 or 4 foot tall platform. I think Robin can handle 'em both.
We slid to a stop on the grass....Was akin to sliding into second base.
Easy!! And loads of fun..!!
Planning on going again....but by myself this time.
