When Does Santa Require Armed Security Elves? When It’s Really George W. Bush at a Children’s Hospital
If this story doesn’t make you respect George W. Bush no matter what your politics are, there’s something wrong with you. Apparently Dubya decided to visit a children’s hospital dressed up as Santa to pass out toys without any media, and his Secret Service detail dressed up as elves.
Here’s a facebook post from a family of a patient that he visited:
And more details from the Daily Mail:
The 68-year-old was handing out toys at the Children’s Medical Center of Dallas to patients who have to spend Christmas at the facility.
The family that posted the picture of Bush to Facebook lost one of their twin daughters earlier this year to a heart disease called restrictive cardomyopathy.
The surviving daughter, Emily, has undergone a heart replacement, but is constantly in and out of hospital as her body rejects the organ.
The family have been raising money for Emily’s medical expenses on GoFundMe.
There were reports on Twitter that Bush’s secret service detail dressed as elves to accompany him.
Bush, who was succeeded by Barrack Obama in 2009, has lifetime secret service protection, as do all former Presidents.
Aw man I think I have something in my eye!!
Meanwhile, at some Target, Michelle Obama is scowling in offense that someone would ask her to reach something on a high shelf. Because racism.
