George HW Bush apologises after actress accuses him of sexual assault

George HW Bush apologises after actress accuses him of sexual assault”

The 31-year-old singer joined forces with the five living former U.S. presidents - Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush, and Jimmy Carter - on Saturday (21.10.17) for the Deep From The Heart benefit concert held in order to raise funds for those affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria.

"I found it disturbing because I recognize the respect ex-presidents are given for having served", she wrote.

Lind claimed that Barbara Bush "rolled her eyes" at Bush, "as if to say 'not again'".

In response to Lind's claims, Bush apologized for the alleged episode that occurred four years ago.

According to Heather, the wheelchair-bound former president touched her from behind and told her a dirty joke, all while being photographed.

"Please help me and my co-stars in coming together for a one-time-only extraordinary evening to raise lifesaving funds for a devastated community and to help celebrate the true meaning of community with this unique reading of a great American classic".

Lind made the allegation after a string of Hollywood stars came forward to accuse producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, harassment and rape.

Lind went on to say that she told her castmates at the time about the alleged assault and that she had chose to come forward because of "the bravery of other women who have spoken up and written about their experiences" in recent weeks. I can be a symbol of my democracy.

A concert attended by the five living former presidents to benefit victims of hurricanes has raised about $2.6 million in addition to $31 million collected before it took place.

'We were instructed to call him Mr President.

A spokesperson for Mr Bush, who was quoted in several media outlets, said the former president "would never under any circumstance intentionally cause anyone distress", adding that he "most sincerely apologises if his attempt at humour offended Ms Lind".
