In his song, ‘Cry,’ the late Michael Jackson suggests we all cry at the same time tonight. After a report in TIME magazine on Monday revealed Rosyln Corrigan was accusing George H. W. Bush, the 41st President of the United States of groping her when she was 16, might I suggest we all puke at the same time…today?
Ugh! The thought alone makes you want to. And you thought they couldn’t get any more disgusting than Harvey Weinstein!
A USA Today article reports Corrigan was standing next to the elder Bush for a photo op at a November 2003 event at a CIA office, when he groped her buttocks. She was at the event with her parents.
Of course, being as old as dirt and as ugly as hell, Bush claims to have no real recollection of the incident, but through a spokesman he apologizes.
In a statement provided to USA TODAY, Jim McGrath, a Bush spokesman, said:
“George Bush simply does not have it in his heart to knowingly cause anyone distress, and he again apologizes to anyone he offended during a photo op.”
…and did you know that Corrigan is the SIXTH woman to reveal this president groped her, since October 24th!!!
“My initial reaction was absolute horror. I was really, really confused,” Corrigan told Time about the incident.
“The first thing I did was look at my mom and, while he was still standing there, I didn’t say anything. What does a teenager say to the ex-president of the United States? Like, ‘Hey dude, you shouldn’t have touched me like that?’” she adds.
No words. Absolutely none that I can use here.
