Washington, Sept 13 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Former US President George Walker Bush has revealed the most nervous moment of his presidency. The former president is featured in a TIME documentary titled “Beyond 9/11: Portraits of Resilience.”

In the documentary, Bush named throwing the ceremonial first pitch at the 2001 World Series as the “most nervous moment” of his presidency. He revealed in the documentary that, “The adrenaline was coursing through my veins, and the ball felt like a shotput… And anyway, I took a deep breath and threw it, and thankfully it went over the plate. The response was overwhelming. It was the most nervous I had ever been. It’s the most nervous moment of my entire presidency, it turns out.”

Last year, Bush gave a similar interview and revealed that his worst moment as president was when singer Kanye West called him racist. The rapper in the aftermath of the destruction of New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina accused the president of being “racist.”

West later apologized for the comments and indicated that Bush has indeed accepted the apology.

President Bush was the leader of the United States when al Qaeda carried out the worst terrorist attack on the soil of the country in 2001. He also authorized the country to go into two wars in the Arab world- Afghanistan and Iraq.
