George W. Bush ripped on social media by waitress in tasteless 9/11 joke after he left generous tip …

George and Laura Bush left Leisa Smith (right) a $40 tip on a $21.47 bill.

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.

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.

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.
