Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, October 27, 2017

A third woman is accusing former President George H.W. Bush of grabbing her backside -- and making the same corny "David Cop-a-Feel" joke -- three years ago, in a moment caught on camera. In a piece for Slate, author Christina Baker Kline recalled the horrifying butt-grab in April 2014, when she lunched with the Bushes at the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy Fundraiser. ... "'David Cop-a-feel,' he said, and squeezed my butt, hard, just as the photographer snapped the photo. Instinctively, I swiped his hand away." The Daily Mail reports a fourth woman has accused Bush.

If a former president in his 90s can't grab a little butt during pictures, the terrorists win.

Okay, so this definitely shouldn't happen, and I am sure someone will be along shortly to tell me what a hateful, sexist pig I am. However, to equate this to Weinstein and the #metoo movement in any way is just ridiculous.

Whack his hand away and move on. I don't get it.... Which admittedly probably because I am a dude but this seems like much ado about nothing.

I don't think it's ridiculous. Sexual misconduct doesn't have to be extreme to be worthy of speaking out against.

Unless Bush is suffering reduced mental capability, he knows this butt grab stunt is inappropriate. He deserves to bring a little embarrassment on himself and the family name for repeatedly trying it on young women.

Is this as bad as Weinstein? No. But let's not laugh it off. It's still groping.

Where did buffalobob go? He was always trying to label GHWB as a huge pedo.

Anyone who has worked with retarded people knows some of them like to make hugs a little bit more intimate than they're supposed to be.

That's not functionally any different than getting away with it because you're a star.

Presidents are stars too.

#3 There is something icky about being pinched, poked or groped by a dirty old man. Believe me.

And if that dirty old man happens to be famous, it doesn't make it any better. It might make if worse if that dirty old man was someone you admired.

I'd feel honored if the president grabbed my tush.

Did anyone else peg HWB for an ass man?

It's funny--Bush is an ass man, while Trump is a bush man.

Well look who Bush is married to.

"Why should we hear about body bags and deaths? It's not relevant. So why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?"

He may have thought it was Barbara, from behind many women look alike.
