Top 10 All-Time George W. Bush Food Moments
5. Party Foul
Speaking of drinking, W. swears he quit the habit decades ago, but as these past 8 years dragged on, it became increasingly clear to everyone that this could not possibly be the case. So it made a lot of sense when we finally caught him downing a brewski while on another one of those crazy G-8 weekend getaways with Tony B. and Angela and the gang. The worst part of this video isn’t Bush pouring the beer so miserably that it overflows all over the table, it’s that he then swoops in for a slurping-the-foam move, thinking this fixes the problem and there’s no need to clean up after himself. Dubya leans back and giggles to himself, clearly pleased that he’s pulled another fast one, and unaware of those omnipresent cameras behind him. Seriously, has anyone told him about YouTube yet?
4. TurkeyGate Revisited
I mean, come on, George! Ever single other president has had to take part in this stupid Thanksgiving turkey-pardoning ceremony, and none of them liked it, but how are you the only one who ended up making a fool out of yourself year after year? I don’t even know what’s going on in this photo, but can you imagine Teddy Roosevelt or John Kennedy ever, ever, stumbling into a photo-op this bad? How do you do it, George? Seriously, tell us. And no, Sarah Palin is even dumber than I am is not the appropriate answer.
It’s true. Ask anyone.
2.Happy Birthday, Mr. Senator
Here’s Bushie licking the frosting off his hands after sharing a delicious 700th birthday cake with his good frenemy John McCain. What’s so embarrassing about that, you ask? Oh, just that this little cake-eating shindig took place on August 29,2005, when a major American city just happened to be under water. You’re doin’ a heckuva job, foodie.
1. The Incident
Just less than one year after starting his first term, an event would shock the world and define George W. Bush’s presidency forever. While relaxing at home and watching a peaceful NFL football fame, W. suddenly choked on a wayward pretzel particle, broke a blood vessel on his cheek, fell off the couch, and slipped unconscious until awakened by his faithful dog Barney. Again, this is not urban legend but yet another thing that actually happened to our fearless leader. Only to you, W, and only in America.
It’s been a long 8 years. Happy Obama! Bring on the arugula.
