Bush 41 jumps into his 90s with birthday skydive

Updated

 Happy 90th Birthday Mr. President!

The socks-crazy president is celebrating his milestone birthday the only way he knows how: by skydiving!

Just as he did for his 80th and 85th birthday, President Bush plans to celebrate entering his ninth decade with one last parachute jump. 

Marking his eighth skydive, the president jumped out of a plane on a tandem jump with a former member of the U.S. Army Parachute Team and the president of All Veterans Group, according to a press release.

To help commemorate the special jump, Twitter was filled with real-time updates of Bush 41’s status. 

Supporters nationwide are also celebrating the senior Bush by showing off their craziest socks as a gesture to Bush 41’s favorite accessory. You can even design your own footwear and submit it to the Bush President Library where President Bush will pick a winning design to display at the library in College Station, Texas.
