Today correspondent Jenna Bush Hager comes from one of the most famous families in the USA. After all, both her father and grandfather – George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush, respectively – are former presidents. Plus, her grandmother was Barbara Bush, with whom her twin sister shares a name. Sadly, though, Jenna experienced a major loss in 2018.
Unsurprisingly, growing up as the daughter of a president wasn’t always easy for Jenna and her sister. In fact, The Daily Beast reported in 2004 that Jenna had even tried to persuade her father not to run for office back in 2000. Her father allegedly responded, “You know, Jenna, your mother and I are living our lives. And that’s what we raised you and Barbara to do: live yours.”
So when George W. Bush became president in 2001, Jenna found herself pushed into the spotlight. Of course, this wasn’t always a positive thing. Within just two months of that year, in fact, Jenna was charged twice with misdemeanors for alcohol-related offenses. First she was caught in possession of alcohol while under 21, and later she was caught using a fake ID to buy drink.
