An editor of a British tabloid was calling President Bush “an idiot” for falling off a Segway in 2003. Click Here for that article.
Piers Morgan may be a great judge of “talent,” but clearly, riding a Segway is not one of his own. The “America’sGot Talent” judge broke several ribs this weekend as a result of a Segway accident, and may not be able to appear on tonight’s season finale.
Hysterically, on June 14, 2003, the tabloid Morgan was then editor for, the Daily Mirror, ran a headline “You’d have to be an idiot to fall off, wouldn’t you Mr President,” along with a rather disparaging article with these pictures of Bush’s accident:
THE makers promise it will never fall over…
So even George Bush should be able to use the Segway personal two-wheel transporter without tumbling off. After all, it’s kept upright by some of the most sophisticated gyroscopes known to man, linked to a series of computers to detect the slightest movement. But if anyone can make a pig’s ear of riding a sophisticated, self-balancing machine like this, Dubya can. The President climbed on, stumbled a bit, then crashed off the other side – before it had actually gone anywhere.
And this is the man who used to fly fighter planes.
Well here he is busting his ass and a few ribs on a Segway…
Hahaha hahah hahhahaha hahahaha hahaha
