Watch George W. Bush video-bomb a reporter live during Phillies-Rangers game

Sometimes all that’s needed to be said is “hey!”

Like Wednesday, when George W. Bush found himself walking behind Fox Sports Southwest reporter Emily Jones during the Texas Rangers’ game against the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday.

Things could have gotten awkward. But the former president and one-time managing general partner of the Rangers was cool as a cucumber, never breaking stride as he delivered a friendly, one-word greeting to viewers everywhere.

“Hey!”

Jones didn’t mind the surprise presidential appearance one bit.

Time magazine reports that Jones approached Bush after the camera stopped rolling and asked, "Did you just photobomb me?" He told her, "Yep, I sure did!"
