President Bush has been recognized for his slips of the tongue, but this is the first time he has been accused of a slip of the finger. On Wednesday’s “Tonight Show,” Jay Leno showed videotape of the president walking away from reporters and thrusting a finger in the air â€” which one is still unclear. But Leno and his audience came to the same conclusion.
The White House is denying that Bush made the rude gesture. But if he did, it wouldn’t be the first time he has let his true feelings about the media slip out. During the 2000 campaign, Bush referred to a New York Times reporter as a “major league asshole,” apparently oblivious of the microphone near him that picked up the comment.
