Luncheon with “Mr. President”

Hail to the Chief!—or is it? Steve Bridges (a.k.a. “Mr. President”) has actually been confused for President Bush right at the front steps of the White House. You won’t believe your eyes when he walks on stage–the resemblance to “Dubya” is astonishing. A veteran stand-up comedian, Bridges’s hilarious impersonation of George W. Bush gives audiences worldwide a look at the lighter side of our 43rd President. Regardless of which side of the aisle you sit, his “Bush-isms” will keep you laughing. Photo-op immediately following the luncheon.
