Ex-president photo-bombs baseball reporter

Former President George W. Bush photo-bombed an on-field reporter at a Texas Rangers game on Wednesday night.

The 43rd president briefly popped onscreen and yelled “Hey!” as he walked behind Fox Sports Southwest's Emily Jones during a live report as the hometown Rangers took on the Phillies.

NBC “Today Show” correspondent Jenna Bush Hager was told of her father's photobomb after landing from a flight.


“Every time I land, I feel like my dad becomes another meme,” Hager said Thursday on “Today.”

Hager said her Dad told her he was not aware of the amused reaction he caused at the game.

“I actually texted him and I go, ‘Dad, photo-bomb somebody?’” Hager said. “He goes, ‘What's a photo-bomb?' He had no idea. He was like, ‘What do you mean? Did it happen at a baseball game?’”

Fox Sports's Jones had no idea the photobomb occurred during her report, but appreciated it upon learning about it afterwards, calling it “her favorite photobomb ever.”

Bush was a managing general partner of the Rangers from 1989-1994 before becoming Texas governor.

The Rangers won Wednesday's game, 9-3.
