Current Fox News pundit Dana Perino is a class act. She gracefully explains conservative views and does her job well. She became famous as the spokeswoman for President George W. Bush’s White House, which is the topic of her new book. And at a recent function, Bush gave her a surprise that she’ll never forget:
Fox News’ Dana Perino got a big surprise from her former boss Tuesday night, when the nation’s 43rd president showed up to deliver a personal introduction at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas.
Perino, a press secretary in the Bush White House, was on hand to discuss her book “And The Good News Is: Lessons and Advice from the Bright Side.” Bush was on hand to do the honors.
“I got to know her quite well. I asked her to take a difficult job, which is defending me,” Bush said to laughter.
“She had to put a bright face on [things] and dealing with a pretty aggressive group of individuals. And we want them to be aggressive, we want there to be a free vibrant press corps to hold people like me to account, and her job was to — interface with them on a daily basis.”
The former president said she did a fantastic job and he is proud to be associated with her.
“The name of her book is ‘And The Good News Is,’ that’s an interesting title isn’t it?” Bush asked before sarcastically naming other titles the book could have had. “‘Oh, What a Miserable Job I Had’ or ‘I Can’t Believe the Guy Asked Me to Do This.’”
Here is video filmed at the event:
This is awesome! Bush is 100% class, and is humble with self-deprecating humor. He is thoughtful and kind to his former employee and we love this surprise.
