Second woman accuses George H.W. Bush of groping

A second woman has accused former President George H.W. Bush of groping her.

Jordan Grolnick, a New York actress, said that she has a similar story to the one Heather Lind shared about the former president fondling her during a photo op, according to Deadspin.

Bush apologized through a spokesman in a statement earlier Wednesday. The statement said that “on occasion, he has patted women’s rears in what he intended to be a good-natured manner” and routinely tells a joke.

Deadspin reported that a source said the “joke” the statement refers to was Bush saying that his favorite magician was “David-Cop-A-Feel.”

“To anyone he has offended, President Bush apologizes most sincerely,” the statement said.

Lind wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post reported by The Daily Mail on Tuesday that Bush "assaulted me while posing for a... photo."

"When I got the chance to meet George H. W. Bush four years ago to promote a historical television show I was working on, 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 by his side. He told me a dirty joke,” Lind wrote.

Here we go...

Please don't take this as a defense of the Bushies (it isn't), but I hope folks recognize this #metoo thing for what it is: a massive effort on the left to raise hysteria among women to effect massive social change...and not for the positive.

Are the communist women warming up for a run at The Donald?

It’s going to take a concerted effort by normal women to quash this garbage. My wife is as red-blooded American as they come, and she’s pissed off about all of this. On the one hand she does not condone this behavior by men. On the other hand, the left has made racism and misogyny their causes celebre to the point that white men are being cowed into subservience.

I take my grandfather’s tack: sit back, grab a cigar, and let this whole thing just blow over.

I thought that when men reach the age of 80 they are allowed to grope at will.

I suppose that speech #43 made, the one where he spoke about our national tone that...compromises the moral education of children was directed at his father and not DJT.

The other woman said he put his hand in an inappropriate place during the above photograph.

In this one, where is his hand?

I believe this sort of thing will backfire on them. This belittles the feminist’s cause. Most people don’t believe a 93 year old man in a wheel chair is intentionally trying to grope women.

I also am not a fan of the Bushes, but have to say that many very elderly men lose their inhibitions in late age. Just ask any nursing home attendant.

When you make a joke saying who is my favorite magician? David Cop-A-Feel. I think he does this otherwise why is his arm around all these women’s rears? He could keep it on his lap.

Think of all the poor baseball players being sexually harassed by their coaches... I bet it’s even happening this week live on TV ...some coach is copping a feel of some player’s arse.

I can attest to that fact, my daughter works in a nursing home and has seen a lot worse.

This alleged actress should have just shut up. These babbling babes are jumping the shark.
