Author Christina Baker Kline has come forward saying she was groped by former President George H.W. Bush in 2014 during a Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy fundraiser during a photo opportunity.
"'You wanna know my favorite book?' he whispered. I had to lean close to hear him," Kline wrote in an op-ed for Slate.
"President Bush put his arm around me, low on my back. His comic timing was impeccable. 'David Cop-a-feel,' he said, and squeezed my butt, hard, just as the photographer snapped the photo. Instinctively, I swiped his hand away," Kline wrote.
Kline is the third woman to accuse Bush of sexually assaulting her.
Actress Heather Lind initially came forward Tuesday claiming Bush sexually assaulted her and described the interaction four years ago in a now-deleted Instagram post. The incident happened during a photo opportunity to promote a TV show.
Late Wednesday, a second woman, New York actress Jordana Grolnick, also accused Bush of groping her, according to Deadspin.
The latest statement from the office of Bush was released Wednesday and offered a detailed defense of the 93-year-old after Lind claimed that he sexually assaulted her.
The statement said that Bush has been in a wheelchair for five years and explains that he cannot reach people around the waist.
"His arm falls on the lower waist of people with whom he takes pictures," the statement read. "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. Some have seen it as innocent; others clearly view it as inappropriate."
"To anyone he has offended, President Bush apologizes most sincerely," the statement added.
Stay out the Bushes.
Not only was he the architect of turning us into North Mexico, he’s a dirty old man.
A senile old man in wheel chair is the same thing as Harvey Weinstein, don’t you know?
Prediction: you’ll never hear this about Jeb or Dubya. It was GHWB who liked Bubba, not his sons.
Well the Bushes are leftwing globalists
The moral equivalency factor here is pretty low.
I’ve never been a fan of his but the left is scraping the bottom of the barrel with this one.
This is probably not even the tip of the iceberg regarding revelations of sexual harassment soon to be told across the country. School teachers were notorious for telling students to “keep your hands to yourselves”. . .looks like some adults never internalized the statement growing up.
The newest fad - claiming sexual harassment.
Last week it was NFL jerks kneeling.
A month or two ago it was Antifa fascists beating up on anyone within reach
Before that it was crazy eyed adults running around in pink pussy-cat hats.
He admitted to having “patted women’s rears” in “a good natured manner” but “never meant to offend.”
It was a good natured paddling. 7 points if light.
I never trusted the SOB after he lied about “no New Taxes”. I hope they pin him with sexual abuse. Lying basturd.
SEE, they are all that way.
Not a Bush fan at this point, but this is ridiculous. Women want to be seen as strong and capable of anything - which I don’t dispute or care to dispute. That said, if you want to project accomplishment, independence, and power, you can’t at the same time claim you are being harassed by a man over 90 years old. I mean, really?
I can recount many times during which I’ve been sexually propositioned or had innuendo thrown my way by women. I ignored it and took it with a grain of salt, which is probably the way it was meant, and would never have thought about being a ‘victim’. I’m not saying women aren’t victimized by sexual harassment. I know it exists. However, crying wolf when only a puppy is there is irresponsible and does harm.
Yet, the photographer didn’t catch her swatting his hand. Sort of like with all the iphones out there, no one has yet to catch a convincing UFO. Always with the #MeToo! but never proof.
Hes on a wheelchair so he automatically touches women’s butts when posing for pictures. I say BS. How long did it take some flunky to come up with that! Here’s a suggestion. Keep your hands in your lap, old man.
I’ll admit I’ve copped some feels in my time. I’m an old man. But today I know better. So should old man Bush.
Like father, like (adopted) son.
Any woman ever grab your ass at work. And then laugh about it?
I doubt it.
And my guess this is something he’s been doing for a while. It’s the behavior of an entitled frat boy.
And after being around senility for a long while I believe the true personality comes out without any filters.
So, yes. I think what he did was stupid and inappropriate.
LOL....maybe there’s some shaky, fuzzy-image vids or pics out there of old man perv, er, Bush copp-a-feeling.
Our society is just like Idiocracy.
