On Wednesday President Bush gave Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi a Segway scooter as a gift. President Bush considers the Japanese Prime Minister to be a good buddy. He told a news conference today “Prime Minister Koizumi is one of my best friends in the international community. I know the prime minister well. I trust his judgment. I admire his leadership.”
Bush also told the Prime Minister he gave his mother and father Segways for their birthdays and added that he felt Koizumi was almost one of the family.
I think Prime Minister Koizumi should return the favour and give President Bush some knee pads as a gift. That would be pretty funny.
