Bush 41 Apologizes After Actress Claims He Groped Her

One of those victims is actress Heather Lind, who claims she was sexually assaulted by the 41st Commander in Chief in 2014.

In a declaration received by the Daily Mail, Bush's representative Jim McGrath stated that the concern is all a misconception- on Lind's comment.

Lind, in a now-deleted Instagram post Tuesday, accused Bush, 93, of touching her from behind during a photo-op while in his wheelchair.

"He sexually assaulted me while I was posing for a similar photo".

Heather Lind, 34, alleged the former United States leader "sexually assaulted" her when they posed for a photograph several years ago, according to a since deleted Instagram post.

"He didn't shake my hand", she said. It moved me from behind from his wheelchair, while his wife Barbara Bush stood at his side. "He told me a dirty joke", she added.

Then Bush, like some problematically horny cartoon character of yore, just kept doing it: "And then, all the while being photographed, touched me again".




Lind says she was actually admonished by security, who told her she shouldn't have stood next to him.

In the wake of the Weinstein allegations, President Trump and other Republicans hit Weinstein not on his alleged predatory behavior but rather on the fact that he was a high-profile Democratic donor who had allegedly assaulted, harassed, and raped a number of women for decades.

"It seems to me a President's power is in his or her capacity to enact positive change, actually help people, and serve as a symbol of our democracy", she continued.

Also, Lind claims that Barbara "rolled her eyes" at Bush, "as if to say "not again'".

Mr Bush served one term as USA president from 1989 to 1993, and is the father of George W Bush, who served two terms in the office between 2001 and 2009.

" I discovered it troubling since I identified the regard ex-presidents are provided for having offered", she composed. "I can enact positive change".

The actress also confirmed that she chose to go public thanks to the "the bravery of other women who have spoken up and written about their experiences". I can be a symbol of my democracy. "We were instructed to call him Mr. President".
