George Cop-A-Feel: Round Two – IOTW Report

George Cop-A-Feel: Round Two


Earlier this week, actress Heather Lind said in a now-deleted Instagram post that former president George H.W. Bush had sexually assaulted her. “He touched me from behind from his wheelchair with his wife Barbara Bush by his side,” she wrote. “He told me a dirty joke. And then, all the while being photographed, touched me again.”

That is not the end of things. Jordana Grolnick, a New York actress, has a story to tell that doesn’t sound very different at all. “I got sent the Heather Lind story by many people this morning,” Grolnick says. “And I’m afraid that mine is entirely similar.”

Rumors about Bush groping actresses in this manner have been circulating for a while. More than a year ago, a tipster passed word about the Heather Lind incident to Deadspin. We were told that Bush had, during a photo opp, groped her and told her that his favorite magician was “David Cop-a-Feel” while fondling her.

(Reached for comment, Bush spokesperson Jim McGrath provided the following statement: “At age 93, President Bush has been confined to a wheelchair for roughly five years, so his arm falls on the lower waist of people with whom he takes pictures. 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.”)

“We all circled around him and Barbara for a photo, and I was right next to him,” she says. “He reached his right hand around to my behind, and as we smiled for the photo he asked the group, ‘Do you want to know who my favorite magician is?’ As I felt his hand dig into my flesh, he said, ‘David Cop-a-Feel!’”

Grolnick says others in the room “laughed politely and out of discomfort.” Former first lady Barbara Bush was among those nearby. “[She] said something along the lines of, ‘He’s going to get himself put into jail!’ to which we laughed harder,” Grolnick says.

Grolnick went home and posted the backstage photo with the former president on Instagram.

  1. Pitiful old fool. Seems more like an awkward attempt at humor. Stupid but harmless enough other than the fact that he left himself open to yet another exaggerated attack by outraged leftist loons.

  2. GHWB is 93 years old, he couldn’t get an erection with a handful of tongue depressors and a couple of rolls of duct tape and has been in a wheelchair for the last five years. I am not 93 but I imagine if I get there my motor skills would be greatly impaired. This alleged claim is as harmless as a grandpa changing a diaper. No Ms. Lind, you don’t need any attention from the press, me or a 93 year old senile man.

  3. GHWB’s physical abilities have diminished significantly, as has his mentality acuity and inhibitions.
    It appears to be a result of being 93. Not an excuse, but reality.
    Barbara needs some fluffy handcuffs for george that match his weird socks.

  4. Vietvet, H. W. narrowly escaped being eaten by cannibals, a fate suffered by some of his fellow aviators. If you get a chance, read “Flyboys”, an account of the attempt to take Iwo Jima’s neighbor island, Chi Chi Jima.

  5. Oh noes! Now George W. Bush is going to have to find a podium and an honorarium to decry racist Hollywood “values”! I Wonder if the not-the-“Can you hear me, now?”-anymore guy’s agent has offered xer services, yet?

  6. So, as often happens to the elderly, or stroke victims, the frontal lobe becomes injured or begins to fail and self control , like the elderly, begins to fade away. George Bush, through his attempt at humor indicates that he is aware of the mental failure and appalled but tries to lighten the manner through humor…soon, the self awareness will go and the humor stop as this good man becomes more primitive. No understanding, no compassion from the young and an opportunity by The Left to defile a good man and lump him with Weinstein..I have seen this too often from the cruel, snarky Progressives who cannot comprehend life and seek to destroy all that is good..As Senator McCain devolves into his natural mean self, The Left might find opportunities to lionize his terrible actions against Trump…a short time and we will know..Anyway, some low callous would be star has made it into the press by lacking integrity and humanity,,,or just brains while we remember Bush in history as a serial groper and Lincoln as a slave owner etc..

  7. I question the timing.

    With all of the salacious stories emerging about the left, all of a sudden we are served up this story?

    Even if it were true it doesn’t even come close to the vile and disgusting that is being revealed on the left.

    HEY EVERYBODY!!!! SQUIRREL!!! (In a wheelchair)


  8. if he is doing this with dementia from a wheelchair imagine what he was doing when he could walk and had half a brain.

    stop letting him off.
    they are all perverts.

  9. So nobody (including Barbara Bush} says “That’s not funny” or “Stop doing that” – my grandfather lived to 105 and I can guarantee he never touched a woman inappropriately
    Being a doddering old fool and failed president does not excuse this – I don’t care how colorful his socks are
    Both Clinton and Bush are family names way beyond their sell by date

  10. I’m no George Bush fan, but at 93, I think it’s safe to just ignore an old man’s tush grab and an unfunny joke.

    Seems pretty harmless to me.

  11. How fashionable of these two young harlots to point the finger at an old veteran at the end of his run, physically and mentally. I don’t much care for the Bush family, but cut the shit.

  12. It’s kind of sad however the upside is that it may just shut the rest of the Bush’s up at least until their father passes. Funny that GW never had a bad thing to say about Obama but goes all “Jimmy Carter” on Trump. I think history may not be too kind to GWB after all.

  13. I think they’re all perverts. All of them, the womenz too. I loathe them all & wouldn’t have my pic taken with any of ’em.

  14. No sympathy for the Bush crime family. If the senile old crook is a grabber, they should control him. Mr.”New World Order”. Fuck him.

  15. If I ever get to be 93, I can almost guarantee you I’ll be doing worse stuff than that.


    Why not?

    I mean, you’ve got to have a little fun with the time you have left, right? And what are they going to do to you? Put you in prison for life? Bwahahahahaaa!

    Look out nurses, here I come!

    Not literally, of course.


  16. Ugh. When I worked in the hospital, the old ladies were shrewish screamers, but the old men… “I’m old, I’ll do what I want.”

    You don’t know how many times PER SHIFT a nurse or aide has to sidestep those hands, and if they can’t they have no recourse. Or, how old dudes will crap themselves just so you can ‘change them.’ AND they will sit in it, too…

    Being old doesn’t give you a hall pass to assault someone, former Prez or not.
