Video: Did George W. Bush Wipe His Hand on Bill Clinton’s Shirt After Shaking Hands in Haiti?


bush-clinton[Video below.] In a viral video burning up on Google, Yahoo and other search engines, it appears that George W. Bush wiped his hands on Bill Clinton’s shirt after shaking hands with a Haitian man while on a humanitarian visit.

Or was he just being affectionate with his fellow former President?

The ex-Commander-in-Chiefs are in Haiti to raise awarness for fund-raising efforts for the earthquake-stricken nation, the BBC reports. President Obama asked his two predecessors to spearhead the U.S.’ aid efforts following the Jan. 12 quake.

The Clinton Bush Haiti Fund has raised $37 million from 200,000 donors, including President Obama, who donated money from his Nobel Peace Prize award.

On Monday, March 22, Clinton and Bush toured the ruins of Port-au-Prince, the country’s devastated capital. There they met with surviviors at a large homeless camp in the city.

After Bush shakes hands with a member of the crowd, he rubs his hand on Clinton’s shirtsleeve. What do you think transpired?

  1. I would probably take a shower immediately after shaking any of their hands. they are infested with deseases and G-D knows what.

  2. Rabboisi, it seems like he was trying to get his attention and point at somthing but it changed views right away. No prob.

  3. I saw it. looks like a wipe and the way he turns his head suggests that he is pretenting to not know what he is doing. However the video is cut off and you can’t see Clinton’s full reaction. The long sweep of the wipe is the final part that conviced me it was a wipe.
