BREAKING: A Second Woman Accuses George H.W. Bush of Sexual Assault


Another “brave” woman is speaking out against George H.W. Bush.
An actress is accusing Bush of grabbing her butt, while making joke about his favorite magician being “David Cop-a-Feel.”
A second woman has come forward claiming former President George H.W. Bush touched her butt during a 2016 photo shoot while making a joke about his favorite magician being ‘David Cop-a-Feel.’
New York actress Jordana Grolnick said the alleged incident happened in August 2016 during a photo-op at a theater in Maine while working on a Hunchback of Notre Dame production, Deadspin reported.
‘We all circled around him and Barbara for a photo, and I was right next to him,’ Grolnick said.
‘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!”
She said that others in the room ‘laughed politely and out of discomfort,’ and that former first lady Barbara Bush ‘said something along the lines of, ‘He’s going to get himself put into jail!”

She wrote: ‘George H.W. Bush has a favorite magician. It’s “David Cop-A-Feel.” He told us so. Barbara has no opinion on magicians. #history’.
Grolnick said, ‘I just thought, ‘Whatever. He’s a dirty old man.”
The actress posted a photo to her Instagram page showing her standing next to Bush, whose hand appears to be near her butt.
She wrote: ‘George H.W. Bush has a favorite magician. It’s “David Cop-A-Feel.” He told us so. Barbara has no opinion on magicians. #history’.
But in reflecting on the incident, she offered advice to others: ‘What I’ve come to realize is that if we tolerate these small comments and grazes from men on the street or former presidents, they might assume that it’s ok with us, and they may take it as permission to do who-knows-what else.’
‘I realize that making light of the situation was the wrong move. It wasn’t ok for him to do that to me,’ she added.
Bush spokesperson Jim McGrath responded with a statement that reads: ‘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.’
