PostGuess What US President is Lionized in Africa? (Harry Papasotiriou, Greece, 09/04/20 6:36 am)
Another former US president more popular in a region away from home than at home is George W. Bush in sub-Saharan Africa.
His two Black Secretaries of State led him to provide generous assistance to that part of the world. In Benin, there is a George W. Bush day and in Ghana, the country's main road is the George W. Bush Highway.
JE comments: Harry, I had no idea. These fun facts are one of the reasons I look forward to opening up my WAIS mail every morning!
The Bush clan famously despises Donald Trump, but George W should be grateful for one thing: Trump's outrages have inspired a wave of Bush nostalgia. In a famous photograph, even Michelle Obama joined the fan club.
