George W. Bush ripped on social media by waitress in tasteless 9/11 joke after he left generous tip …
Former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura were satisfied with their service at a restaurant last week — so much so the they took a photo with the waitress and left her a hearty $40 tip on the measly $21.47 bill.
But for some reason, their server, Leisa Smith, decided to pay them back by sharing the snap with a tasteless 9/11 caption directed at Bush on her Twitter page.
“Bush did 911 but he did me a solid and left me a hella tip #” Smith wrote in the now deleted tweet containing a photo of her, George W. and Laura at the restaurant, the location of which is unknown.
She was more tame on the Facebook post about the encounter, commenting “as a liberal I enjoyed the experience itself more than the political aspect.”
The phrase “George Bush did 9/11” is commonly thrown around on the Internet to make fun of 9/11 conspiracy theorists who believe the government was behind the attacks.
“PSA I DONT THINK BUSH ACTUALLY DID 911,” Smith tweeted three days after the original post.
Once Smith’s message went viral, thanks to a retweet by @BASEDJESUS — an account that has more than 211,000 followers — she explained that she doesn’t really think Bush did 9/11.
“PSA I DONT THINK BUSH ACTUALLY DID 911,” she tweeted three days after the original post.
Now, a pinned tweet on Smith’s account, @leisaiscool, is a screenshot of a longer message explaining the original 9/11 tweet was “a sarcastic joke.”

“I didn’t mean to make fun of 9/11 or the people involved, I was only trying to mock the people that really believe the conspiracy,” the message reads. “…President George W. Bush and his wife were the nicest people I have ever met and had I known the tweet would blow out of proportion like this I would have never tweeted it.”
While Smith was waiting on George and Laura, the former president ordered a burger with onion rings and specially requested that no mustard go “anywhere near the burger,” she told Mic.
In case you were wondering, my buddy George absolutely hates mustard and his wife doesn’t let him drink caffeine

Smith apparently isn’t a fan of Republican, and GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, either.
Her Twitter profile includes a link to loser.com, which leads to Trump’s Wikipedia page.
