WASHINGTON — When first lady Laura Bush counseled her twin daughters on how to behave while campaigning with their father, she may have skipped the part about not sticking your tongue out at the media.
That’s what Jenna Bush did Tuesday after President Bush arrived at St. Louis’ Lambert International Airport.
Jenna and sister Barbara, traveling together for the first time with their father, had traded Air Force One for the waiting presidential limousine as Bush talked to a group of people at the bottom of the plane’s staircase.
After Bush got in the back seat beside Jenna, the 22-year-old graduate of the University of Texas at Austin started smiling through the window at about 10 to 12 news photographers and radio reporters stationed on a platform.
Then she stuck her tongue out and began to laugh.
As everyone on the platform started to laugh and snap photographs, Jenna Bush looked at them for a few more seconds, smiling and laughing.
The Bush twins recently joined their dad on the stump for his last political campaign.
Last week, Laura Bush told a television interviewer that she was delighted by her daughters’ decision to campaign for the president and said she told them to “stand up straight and keep your hair out of your eyes.”
