Jenna Bush Hager introduces her grandfather to his great-granddaughter via Apple’s FaceTime

“Former first daughter Jenna Bush Hager welcomed a second child on Thursday, a girl named after Jenna’s grandfather, former President George H.W. Bush,” Sarah Begley reports for TIME.

“But instead of a variation on ‘George,’ the new baby’s name is ‘Poppy’ — H.W.’s nickname as a child,” Begley reports.

“Poppy Louise Hager weighed in at 7 lbs., 9 oz., and mother and child both appear happy and healthy,” Begley reports. “Jenna introduced her grandfather to his great-granddaughter via FaceTime, which she told the Today show was a very emotional experience.”

MacDailyNews Take: Apple’s FaceTime is the perfect technology for just such an introduction. As Apple’s FaceTime for iOS webpages states, “Imagine your sister is away at school and can’t make it to your son’s birthday. So you’re cheering her up with a FaceTime call. As the cupcakes come out, your son’s eyes light up, and you just have to share it. Tap a button, and before you can say ‘Make a wish,’ you’ve switched to the back camera and the birthday boy’s big moment. Another tap switches to the front camera and to you. Simple, fast, and fun.”

    1. Those down voting me should be ashamed as Gold Duster should be of his cold. inhuman & terse post. Regardless of who the people are here there is a shared universality to family and familial love, and that is what this is all about. If you’re a sociopath I understand. Otherwise get a clue about what it is to be human.

    1. Not certain about a time machine, but I can see no reading comprehension was involved. Let me see if I can paraphrase for the slow person in the room.

      Jenna Bush (daughter of Dubya), introduced her grandfather (Dubya’s dad aka Bush 41) to her daughter (aka Bush 41’s great-granddaughter.)

      Or, if you’re more of a visual person:
      Bush 41 (Bush Sr) > W (Bush Jr) > Jenna > Poppy
      Great-grandfather > Grandfather > Mother > Child

        1. Says the guy who’s supporting a left-wing socialist Democrat with a Marxist penchant for redistribution, promoted under the banner of a “progressive economic agenda”. Not many favor the oligarchic cancer in our federal government, and we’re all for a stronger middle-class, but Bernie Sanders and his policies in the Executive Branch would be out of the frying pan and into the fire.

          1. Bernie Sanders is a Social Democrat and is the farthest thing from a Marxist. As to being left-wing, so what. The left wing created the middle class in America and the right-wing has been trying to destroy it.

            A candidacy is essentially a job interview and I love it when the NeoCons- applying for a government job by running- tell us how they hate government and do not believe in it’s ability to get things done.

            That is like applying for a job at Apple saying I don’r use a Mac, iPhone, iPad or iOS Device and think they are shit- however, I want a job here.

  1. Great. More Bushies to run for president and screw us all. I swear, they breed like rabbits. We still don’t have a handle on how many Bush brothers there are. They just pop up out of the blue every election year.

  2. Before I ever opened this story, I made a prediction that the majority of the comments would come from stupid jackasses making negative comments about a baby being born.

    Yes, you are stupid jackasses and deep down you know it. Have a nice day.

    1. I wonder if the ones making the snide remarks are the same ones that whine when some MDN posts get too political on the stuff they believe “The way things ought to be” gets criticized?!?

      Hmm…, I also wonder if anybody caught that!

  3. Anyone in prison yet?

    Somehow, I don’t think there would have been a story posted here if a democrat was involved… That’s the basis of the snarky responses, which I can understand. The Emperor wears no clothes. We are force-fed politics here and most of us resent it.
