Would you lie to read some interesting and fun presidential facts that yo may not know? Well, you are at the right place. And to kick off we will bring you one of the more embarrassing moments for George Bush Snr.
1 George H. W. Bush Was Responsible For Coining the Japanese Phrase Bushusuru
Have you ever heard of Bushu-suru? It came about thanks to President Bush, but not the one you are thinking of. Former US President George W. Bush will forever be associated with public gaffs and mixing his words and phrases up. But it appears he may have just been trying to out do his dad.
On January 8, 1992 at around 8:20 p.m. Japan Standard Time, former US President George H. W. Bush, (George W. Bush’s father) vomited on Japanese Prime Minister Kiichi Miyazawa, who was hosting a banquet for 135 diplomats, and then fainted. The event became a thing of comedy with networks and comedians from around the world parodying it. In Japan a new word entered the language, Bushu-suru which means “to do the Bush thing”.
2 George Washington Was Nearly Shot In 1777
History could be so different had one man not made a chivalrous decision at the Battle of Brandywine Creek on September 11, 1777. At that battle, Major General George Washington, of the Continental Army fell into the sights of then captain Patrick Ferguson, a sharp shooter of the British Army, but he did not shoot.
