- On a now deleted instagram post, Lind talks about how she was disturbed to see a photo with former US presidents Barack Obama, George W Bush, Bill Clinton, George HW Bush, and Jimmy Carter together, because while she respects some of the men in the photo, she says she was assaulted by George HW Bush at a photoshoot
- Lind says: "He didn’t shake my hand. He touched me from behind from his wheelchair with his wife Barbara Bush by his side. He told me a dirty joke. And then, all the while being photographed, touched me again. Barbara rolled her eyes as if to say ‘not again.’ His security guard told me I shouldn’t have stood next to him for the photo."
- Bush's spokesperson's statement: "President Bush would never—under any circumstance—intentionally cause anyone distress, and he most sincerely apologizes if his attempt at humor offended Ms. Lind."
