Watch: George W. Bush Wipes Hand on Bill Clinton's Shirt After Shaking Hands with Haitian


Former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton made a joint visit to Haiti this week to survey the earthquake devastation. While there they shook hands with plenty of survivors. Caught on tape was a moment in which Bush shook hands with someone and then wiped his hand off on Bill Clinton's shirt!

Mediaite writes: "The visuals just look bad – an American President shaking hands with a crowd of Haitians, then getting something he deems ‘icky’ and wiping it on the shirt of another American President."

To answer yes, he was told to think of playing tennis, a motor activity. To answer no, he was told to think of wandering from room to room in his home, visualising everything he would expect to see there, creating activity in the part of the brain governing spatial awareness. His doctors were amazed when the patient gave the correct answers to a series of questions about his family."

Anderson Cooper says Haitian Adoption Story 'False'


I reached out to Anderson Cooper for response following a report in the National Enquirer that he had adopted a Haitian orphan after being moved by the suffering there following the devastating earthquake.

Said Cooper to Towleroad: "While the plight of children in Haiti has touched us all, and I continue to cover the situation there closely, stories about me adopting a baby are false. I am not adopting a child, Haitian or otherwise."
