President George H.W Bush was accused by an actress named Heather Lind that he sexually abused her during a photography session, in presence of his wife Barbara Bush. After this hap, Bush apologized saying this was a “practical joke” went wrong. He didn’t mean to trouble Lind.
Lind made her statement through an Instagram post which was deleted to avoid negative publicity of president. In that post, she specified this incident which generated a very dark opinion about power. Actress shared her experience saying “when I got the chance to meet George H. W. Bush four years ago to promote a historical television show I was working on, he sexually assaulted me while I was posing for a similar photo.”
This ceaseless post reported that Bush touched her meanly from behind and whispered a dirty joke. All this activity of president was performed while being photographed.
Heather continued by stating that Barbara Bush seemed to notice this shameful act of her husband but instead of playing a role of savior she just rolled her eyes as if trying to convey a warning.
The actress said “It seems to me a President’s power is in his or her capacity to enact positive change, actually help people, and serve as a symbol of our democracy,” she continued. “He relinquished that power when he used it against me and, judging from the comments of those around him, countless other women before me. What comforts me is that I too can use my power, which isn’t so different from a President really.”
Post ended by Lind’s gratitude for those who supported her, she wrote “My fellow cast-mates and producers helped me that day and continue to support me. I am grateful for the bravery of other women who have spoken up and written about their experiences. And I thank President Barack Obama for the gesture of respect he made toward George H. W. Bush for the sake of our country, but I do not respect him. #metoo.”
In response to this accusation, Bush’s spokesperson said that president would never cause anyone a trouble intentionally. He apologized on behalf of president for this sick effort of creating humor which clearly made Lind feel disrespected as a woman.
This causational statement was posted when actress saw former President Bush at the “One America Appeal hurricane relief concert”.
