Pres. George W. Bush Takes Ice Bucket Challenge


Former President George W. Bush joined the ALS ice bucket challenge today, and he put his own "Dubya" spin on it.

Bush initially joked in the video posted to his Facebook page that participating in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge wouldn't be "presidential" and sat down to write a check instead. That's when his wife, the former first lady, jumped in to splash him anyway.

"That check is for me. I don't want to ruin my hairstyle," she said smiling.

Bush then nominated Bill Clinton, saying he was happy to give the gift of a cold bucket of water for Clinton's birthday, which was yesterday.
