President Bush and Sugar Ray ‘fought’ on the White House lawn Friday.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - After a week of political fights in Washington, President Bush looked ready for one more as he headed to Camp David Friday.
Boxing great Sugar Ray Leonard brought his family to the White House, and stood in the VIP guest area to greet the president as he walked to the helicopter.
CNN White House Producer Erika Dimmler reported the President walked out onto the South Lawn alone, and upon seeing Leonard standing near the path that leads to the helicopter, put his two fists up in a mock boxing stance. Sugar Ray responded with a similar pose, and for a few moments they looked locked in battle.
It was a rare time Marine One wasn’t the center of attention on the South Lawn.
Afterward, Sugar Ray toured the new press office and briefing room with his family, even venturing beneath the podium to view what remains of the old White House swimming pool. There, he took the time to sign his name one of the faded old blue tiles, Sugar Ray Leonard, and the date.
