We thought this guy was busy finger painting?

"George W. Bush discovers his 'inner Rembrandt' in homage to veterans".

That's an actual CNN headline.

Ah yes. More of the same from our friends at CNN.

Nothing says "democracy" like "war criminal living free and happily finger-painting portraits of young men he sent to die in faraway lands".

We're sure CNN will receive many Pulitzers for that eye-opener.

If you haven't swallowed a gallon of bleach yet, this will probably kill you:

George W. Bush on "Ellen"! How charming.

And he even told a nice story about Putin "dissing" his dog:

President George W. Bush stopped by Ellen on Thursday and recalled a story about Russian President Vladimir Putin not exactly taking a liking to then White House dog Barney. It wasn’t anything that Barney did; it was just that Barney, a Scottish terrier, is small. Bush got a deeper insight into the Russian leader’s character during a trip to Moscow.

Bush explained, “A year later, Putin says, ‘Would you like to meet my dog?’ Laura and I were with Putin at his dacha outside of Moscow. I said, ‘Yeah, I’d like to meet him.” And out comes this giant hound kind of loping across the birch-lined yard, and Putin looks at me and says, ‘Bigger, faster, and stronger than Barney.’”

Bush went on to say that Putin has a chip on his shoulder.

A chip on his shoulder? Because of the dog?

Enjoy your Friday, if it's even possible at this point.
