George W. Bush Dances At Dallas Police Memorial Service

George W. Bush decided to have some fun and dance at a memorial service for the Dallas police killed recently. Is he drunk? Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola (ThinkTank), hosts of The Young Turks, break down George W. Bush dancing at the Dallas police memorial. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"Former President George W. Bush is getting flak for appearing too exuberant during the interfaith memorial service for the five Dallas police officers killed by sniper fire.

On Tuesday, Bush, holding hands with First Lady Michelle Obama, swayed and swung his arms in a somewhat cheerful manner during a performance of the "Battle Hymn of the Republic" at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center.

The 70-year-old sang along while standing in between FLOTUS and his wife, Laura Bush.

After social media users criticized the moment, Bush spokesman Freddy Ford released a statement on Twitter on Wednesday, saying the 43rd president was simply "moved" by the "joyful, spiritual and triumphant" song."*

  1. Bush is a fricken toolbox! This is a great hope for children that if guy
    like him can be a president anyone can.

    • Not a great president? are you joking? he had to be the worst president to
      have ever existed and you`re basically groping his ball sack.

    • +Parabellum no Obama is the worst ever we keep getting worse because we
      pick career politician that want to line there pockets

  2. If you consider the possibility of early onset Alzheimer’s this is just
    really sad

  3. I don’t believe he was trying to be mean spirited. he was proud in the
    moment of that song. He just got caught up in the spirit of the song. Give
    him a pass

  4. I actually like GWB. He only became president because of the disastrous
    2000 election that was stolen from Gore because, and this is a fact, Gore
    had 550,000 more popular votes. The 2000 election proved that the
    electorate system should be abandoned because it is antiquated. With that
    said, Bush was incompetent as a president, but he did not have any malice
    towards any groups. Bush is like Trump without the mean streak.
    Unfortunately, Bush surrounded himself with very evil men who whispered
    poison in his ears.

    • hey if he wasnt capable of running a country, wtf did he run for? hes just
      another stupid texan, head to big for his hat.

    • +Ronald Swafford IDK if you were talking to me or not. If you were: that’s
      what’s wrong with the world, not enough people caring. If you weren’t,
      nevermind. 🙂

  5. I don’t think he is being disrespectful. He doesn’t look well. He seems
    very off. The others look uncomfortable as well. Michelle, seems to be
    humouring and chastising him, like you do a child and Laura is trying to
    keep him from moving. Obama looked a bit annoyed as well as Michelle, but
    they try to play it off. If he isn’t well, the he might be intoxicated.

  6. Not half as bad as sitting in an elementary school classroom reading My Pet
    Goat upside down while America was under attack. The murdering traitor.

    • For the sake of truth, not Bush, I have to correct this. The book was right
      side up. The one in your memory was photo shopped.

    • hanging Chad’s and voting irregularities on both elections…he wasn’t
      voted in, he was placed.

  7. Sheriff looked like he was ready to beat the hell out of Bush, Michelle,
    And Obama at that moment. He looked *pissed.*

    • +Katherine Winyala So you are inserting the Obamas in that sentence just
      because, or maybe because your “psychic skills” are defective?
