Bono Impersonates Bill Clinton At Annual Clinton Global Initiative Meeting
The Clinton Global Initiative tries to find answers to challenges related to energy, education, environment and health
Bono took Bill Clinton’s seat onstage at the annual Clinton Global Initiative meeting in New York City on Tuesday, and proceeded to mimic him when the former president didn’t show up on time.
Seemingly without effort, Bono impersonated Clinton’s southern drawl, recounting the first time they met one another in the Oval Office from Clinton’s point of view. "When I first met Bono, he walked into the Oval Office and I actually thought he was a member of his own road crew,” the Irish rocker said. “He wasn't dressed right. Actually, I felt like the rock star on that occasion.”
After a number of “My god's” and “Isn’t that right's,” and a lot of laughter from the audience, Clinton himself walked out from behind the stage to find Bono in his chair. “I must be really easy to make fun of,” he joked, as he kicked Bono out of his chair.
The Clinton Global Initiative endeavors to find solutions to problems that affect the entire world, including energy, health, the environment, education and women’s rights. Bono, who was a part of the panel on Tuesday, spoke about the dangers that the oil and gas industry pose for innocent children.
