Bush avoids the clap in Hanover hotel

Bush was met with complete silence after giving what the Times described as a “fiery” speech at the Hanover Inn, where he vowed to prioritize national security as President.

“I won’t be out here blowharding, talking a big game without backing it up,” he said, as quoted by the Times.

“Please clap,” he pleaded as the audience remained quiet.

According to the Times, the crowd laughed before finally breaking out into applause.
