What did it really happen that day in 1991 to cause Mrs. Bush's injury?
The caption of the photo, written by Bush, reads: "Arnold – Turn, fuck, Turn !!"
Anna Perez, Barbara Bush's press officer at the time, told The Post and the Times that the president had shouted "Bail out! Bail out!" when he saw Barbara Bush go down the hill. "She does not know why she did not bail out." She just held up and the next thing she knew, was that there was a tree, "she said. Perez told the newspapers.
Schwarzenegger wrote about this incident in his memoirs: "Total Recall: My Incredibly Real Story."
"The president and I went down the hill too quickly and crushed Barbara, she found herself in the hospital with a broken leg," he said on page 397. "J & # 39 always have the picture that President Bush sent me afterwards. "
Later Sunday, Fredricka Whitfield, presenter of "CNN Newsroom", asked Bush 's son, Neil Bush, to clarify Schwarzenegger' s comments and to remember the events of the order.
"About the concept of the accident and your mom, you know, break his leg, then does he say that he caused your mother's leg fracture?" or did she break her leg in a different way? " Whitfield asked. "Because there are different stories out there, what is your – what do you remember?"
"Well, she broke her leg running in one – I was not there, but she broke her leg running in a tree," he said. .
CNN asked Schwarzenegger for clarification, but he was in Europe and did not answer Sunday night.
The actor and seven-time winner of Mr. Olympia has fondly remembered his experiences with the former president of Camp David and elsewhere during his interview Sunday morning.
"We had a really good time at Camp David," he told Tapper. "And as I said, it was a great learning experience, you know, hanging out around him, he was both a mentor and a kind of father figure."
