The Ice Bucket Challenge, America's favorite (wasteful) viral water dumping campaign to raise money for ALS research, can now include a former president amongst the soaked.
Jenna Bush Hager challenged her father, George W. Bush, and her mother Laura to pour cold water on themselves on the Today Show, where she apparently has a recurring gig where she embarrasses her parents on national television.http://gawker.com/you-can-all-stop-doing-the-ice-bucket-challenge-now-1622303642
"To you all that challenged me, I do not think it's presidential for me to be splashed with ice water, so I'm simply going to write you a check," Bush says before Laura Bush douses him. She looks into the camera, grins, and says, "That check is for me. I wouldn't ruin my hairstyle."
Bush goes on to nominate Bill Clinton to also dump a bucket of ice on himself. "Yesterday was Bill's birthday and my gift to Bill is a bucket of cold water."
