Bush Jokes About Lack of WMDs in Iraq

By March 25, 2004

Follow me on:

President Bush has been widely mocked for his administration's failure to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Now, in one of the more baffling comic turns of his presidency, Bush himself is getting in on the act.

As part of a light-hearted comedy skit at the annual Radio & TV Correspondents' Association dinner, Bush showed a series of "dorky-looking pictures of himself," according to the Washington Post. "A recurring joke involved photos of the president in awkward positions bent over as if he's looking under a table, leaning to look out a window accompanied by remarks such as 'Those weapons of mass destruction have got to be somewhere!' and 'Nope, no weapons over there!' and 'Maybe under here?'"

The politicians and media bigwigs in attendance laughed heartily, but critics including John Kerry were not amused. "If George Bush thinks his deceptive rationale for going to war is a laughing matter, then he's even more out of touch than we thought," Kerry said. "Unfortunately for the president, this is not a joke."

Watch the video clip or read Bush's full remarks and judge for yourself.
