Former President Bush -- rumored to be a bit of a Germaphobe -- was caught wiping his hand on the shirt of Former President Clinton after shaking the hands of Haitians.
Via Think Progress:
After the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti in January, President Obama asked former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush to lead the U.S. relief effort in that country. The two men viewed one of Haiti’s “massive tent cities” yesterday, in a trip — their first one to the country together — to “remind donors of the immense needs facing the recovery effort.” BBC aired video of Bush and Clinton’s visit, and Mediate noticed that at one point, Bush appeared to wipe his hand off on Clinton’s shirt after shaking hands with a crowd of Haitians.I can't believe I'm gong to sympathize with GEORGE W. BUSH on this, but I'm somewhat Germaphobic myself. But I do think I would have been able to control myself until I was back in the car before pulling out my Purrell, which I would have stocked up on before going a trip like this.
