George H.W. Bush just turned 94 years old, and while some are celebrating the former president, others don't feel he deserves any praise given his #MeToo history. Last year, four women came forward claiming Bush had groped them. Bush apologized to some of the women, and his spokesman admitted the former president had “patted women’s rears.” Does George H.W. Bush really deserve all the praise?

But is he really such a good man? Last year, four women came forward claiming Bush had groped them.

Actress Heather Lind, best known for her role on AMC’s Revolutionary War drama Turn: Washington’s Spies, has accused ex-president George H.W. Bush of groping her when they met.
Bush’s spokesperson, Jim McGrath, issued the following statement in response: “President Bush would never — under any circumstance — intentionally cause anyone distress, and he most sincerely apologizes if his attempt at humor offended Ms. Lind.” Four women total have since publicly accused Bush of groping them.
