Bush Wipes Hand on Clinton’s Shirt, Internet Goes Wild [VIDEO]

Oh, man — it’s time for another viral video depicting a politician doing something potentially unseemly: On a recent trip to Haiti, BBC news cameras caught George W. Bush wiping his hand on Bill Clinton’s shirt after shaking hands with a Haitian man. Let the video-sharing and inevitable outcry commence.

According to The Huffington Post, Breitbart.TV first brought this clip to the attention of the public. We’ve embedded it below for your informed perusal. (Sidenote: Is this song stuck in anyone else’s head?)

While it could be equally possible that Bush is merely patting Clinton on the back, most blogs and Internet denizens went for the worst possible scenario: That the former president is not only snubbing the man he just shook hands with, but also using Clinton as his own personal handkerchief. Either way, the video has garnered more than 700,000 views since it was posted to YouTube (YouTube) on Tuesday.

When will these politicians learn?

Holding office = Fame = Constant surveillance by the news = Don’t mess up or said gaffe will instantly go viral

What do you think? Was Bush’s action a snub?

What do you think? Was this intentional on George W.’s case?

What about this scenario has made this video go so viral???

What do you think? Leave a comment below and let’s flush it out…

  1. sorry but i think that was very rude of the former president

  2. There is a second there where the hand “feels” pretty overwhelmed with the touching. It's almost as if it will start shaking any minute. It also is interesting how openly oblivious he is to his surroundings and how his action may impact other people. A micro sample scene reflecting the feeling behind macro mess he left behind.
