George W. Bush can add a key contribution to his post-White House career: the photobombing of a sports program in a video that quickly lit up the Internet.
Fox Sports Southwest’s Emily Jones was working on a live broadcast of the Philadelphia Phillies – Texas Rangers game Wednesday night in Arlington when the former president arrived. With a drink in hand, he appeared on the screen to say “hey”.
Leading the Rangers as a managing partner was Bush’s first continuing role in the public eye before becoming governor of Texas and then president for two terms. He remains a staunch fan of the Texas Rangers.
People online were obsessed with how he accidentally crashed the Fox Sports report.
It was also a highlight for the journalist.
The Rangers won their eighth straight game, but Bush could well win on the internet. This is the former Commander-in-Chief’s most significant social media contribution since his inauguration day struggle to use a poncho.
