Former President George Bush is not a fan of selfies.
In fact, the president is a big proponent of a selfie as a means of capturing moments that might otherwise be lost, according to a New York Times interview that is set to air on PBS this weekend.
Bush, who was reelected to a second term in 2010, was interviewed on a podcast by Diane Sawyer about the dangers of selfie-taking, saying, “It would be insane to have the President take pictures of himself in the Oval Office or at the White House.”
Bush, who took a selfie at the 2009 inauguration, said he “couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve looked at pictures of myself in the White Senate office or Oval Office, I can’t tell me how many pictures I’ve taken, and I’m not saying that I’ve had any, but I can tell you that there are too many of them.”
He added, “I don’t have time to watch them.
I have too much to do.
And it’s just too distracting.”
Bush said the selfie is a “disaster” that is causing “a lot of distraction.”
“You’d really have to have a foolproof plan to get yourself into that position,” Bush said.
“There’s a reason why they call it the ‘pixilated selfie.'”
“You could do a photo of yourself in a pool, or a pool party, or an office party,” Bush added.
“It’s an art form.”
Bush is currently the most popular person in the world in a poll of more than 100,000 people by the Pew Research Center.
His popularity has been fueled by his support of President Donald Trump, whose popularity has skyrocketed since taking office.
Bush also said he had “great memories” of working with President Bill Clinton.
He also said Clinton’s “loyalty” to him was an asset during his presidency, saying he felt “really comfortable” with him when it came to the presidency.
“When I first came in, Bill was really loyal,” Bush told Sawyer.
“I think I was the only one who didn’t have the same feeling.
But he always stood by me.”
