At last week’s press conference at Camp David, President George Bush insulted BBC political editor Nick Robinson, the Daily Mirror reports.Robinson, who has asked Bush pointed questions in the past such as whether the president was “in denial” over the Iraq war, posed a question about whether he could trust visiting British Prime Minister Gordon Brown not to “cut and run” from Iraq.

Bush replied with a dismissal: “Are you still hanging around?”

Later on, Bush poked fun at the bare-pate of Robinson, joking, “You’d better cover up your bald head, it’s getting hot out.”

The respected British reporter shot back, “I didn’t know you cared.”

Bush responded with a cool, “I don’t.” The Mirror reports that Bush then “snorted disdainfully” and “walked away to laughter.”
