Watch George W. Bush Heckle a Mascot of Himself at Texas Rangers Game
Now that’s something you don’t see every day!
Former President George W. Bush was in the stands to watch his Texas Rangers take on the New York Yankees at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas, on Wednesday night when he was faced with a larger-than-life version of himself on the baseball field.
Dubya couldn’t resist heckling himself—in mascot form—as he made his way to to the finish line in a race between the mascots Nolan Ryan and Sam Houston. "Get moving!" Bush hollered at his bigheaded twin from his front row seat next to Laura, his wife of 40 years.

Not surprisingly, the entire hilarious interaction was caught on camera and quickly made the rounds on social media. Even the Texas Rangers shared the clip on their Twitter account, writing “Not much to report game-wise yet, but there’s a ruthless heckler in attendance tonight.”
With a little help from the big man himself, the Bush mascot won the race, as did the Rangers, with a final score of 12-10.
