She remembers because it was the only time in her life that a man gave her tush a pinch.
His memory and eyesight seem to both be failing.
Just where is that left hand H.W.?
Looks like Monica lost a few pounds.
OK, now I’m thinking a lot of these actresses are just looking for publicity. So what if somebody else gets hurt.
Like Uncle Leo on Seinfeld— “I’m an old man, and confused... Please take me home...”
You got that right. Never heard of her, so I looked her up on IMDB. After reading her bio and the "work" she's done, I STILL never heard of her.
“She remembers because it was the only time in her life that a man gave her tush a pinch”
Aw man! When an old dog passes eighty he should be allowed to cop a little feel! What’s the harm? He’s in a wheel chair for God’s sake!
A pat (or pinch) on the rump = sexual assault.
OK. Have they processed the rape kit yet?
This great news for the Bush clan. The old man is still alive and W found his voice.
I find this hard to believe. The old man in his dotage is committing “sexual assault”??
I know this is a hot topic with Harvey Weinstein in the news and all that. But is everything now considered assault?
What’s next? Will law enforcement open an investigation into the old man? Geez louise, hope it doesn’t go there.
The attempt at humor was he told her a dirty joke.
You can see from the picture that he was getting in a cheap grope. < /sarcasm >
While a man up in his 90’s might have an occasional stray thought, that would have been neither the time nor place. And as far as an “off-color” joke, well, abuse is in the mind of the recipient of such attention much more than in the mind of the speaker, who thought of something similar only as a jest.
Old guys like to use humor, you know.
They marginalize themselves and their cause with this idiocy. As usual, the left shifts the meaning of words to meet a political agenda.
I’ll bet there are thousands of men on respirators who are wantonly molesting innocent you women every day.
There are occasionally times and circumstances when the ladylike - or Womanly - thing to do, is to ignore it. I think this was one of those times.
