George W. Bush made a slip of the tongue while discussing the war in Ukraine during an event in Dallas, Texas, on May 18. In a discussion titled “Elections: A More Perfect Union,” the former president referenced what he described as a “totally unwarranted and brutal invasion,” but said Iraq, rather than Ukraine. Five minutes into the speech, referring to the Russian invasion of Vladimir Putin, Bush says: “The result is the absence of checks and balances and one man’s decision to launch a totally unwarranted and brutal invasion of Iraq. I mean Ukraine. “. Bush then laughs at this mistake and says, “Iraq too.” The former president also referenced his recent Zoom call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, describing him as “a cool little man. The Churchill of the 21st century.” The Dallas event was organized by the George W. Bush Institute, the Association for American Democracy, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the Karsh Institute for Democracy at the University of Virginia.
