Bombshells all around. We’ve witnessed major bombshells from the former Bush President. the Bush Presidents have always respected the idea of not criticizing the guy that comes after them. Although this seems like a challenge, every President has enough respect for the people that follow. But, it seems like this is about to end after the Bush Presidents launched a combined attack against President Donald Trump.
There’s nothing wrong with their past service to our amazing nation. They had all the power in the world, and led the country in the way they know best. But, what did Americans think of that?
We won’t really discuss the problem if it’s a matter of politics and payback. After all, not everyone has to agree with the President’s handling of issues. Let’s just say that time is the best judge.
If by any chance you didn’t see it, CNN reported the elder Bush’s report on President Trump. “I don’t like him. I don’t know much about him, but I know he’s a blowhard. And I’m not too excited about him being a leader,” he said. These are strong words, and we really hope that Bush knew what he was saying.
George W. Bush took a few shots at the sitting President of the United States adding he had no idea of what it looks like residing in the White House.
Everyone has the right to share their own opinion, but they’re not entitled to their own facts.
Let’s just turn to Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her communication team.
Sarah accompanies the President in Asia. “If one presidential candidate can disassemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had. And that begins with the Iraq war, one of the greatest foreign policy mistakes in American history. President Trump remains focused on keeping his promises to the American people by bringing back jobs, promoting an ‘America First’ foreign policy and standing up for the forgotten men and women of our great county,” she said in her statement.
Today we had some bombshell news from the former Bush Presidents. They, more so than Clinton or Obama, always respected the idea that they don’t criticize the next guy. Because the job’s too hard.
But that is all gone now after they launched a combined sneak attack against Trump today.
I am not doubting their past service to this great nation and if they really feel this way more power to them.
However, if this is political and and is payback for how Trump manhandled low energy Jeb, or called out the establishment for their many failures than it is something else.
Time will tell.
If you missed it, CNN reported that the elder Bush said of Trump,
“I don’t like him. I don’t know much about him, but I know he’s a blowhard. And I’m not too excited about him being a leader.”
George W. Bush piled on too and took a few shots at Trump saying he had no idea what it meant to be in the White House.
They are entitled to their opinion. But they are not entitled to their facts.
For those we turn to a hastily released statement sent to CNN from Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ White House communication team.
Sarah is currently with Trump in Asia and you just know she would have loved to deliver this stinging rebuke in person, so just imagine her voice speaking the following statement for full effect.
“If one presidential candidate can disassemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had. And that begins with the Iraq war, one of the greatest foreign policy mistakes in American history. President Trump remains focused on keeping his promises to the American people by bringing back jobs, promoting an ‘America First’ foreign policy and standing up for the forgotten men and women of our great county.”
I guess the establishment has not gotten over their historic rout in the 2016 elections. Where Trump took on not just the GOP but the entire Democratic establishment and wiped the floor with the bunch.
An upcoming book shows that former President George H.W. Bush did not mince words when asked about President Donald Trump, back before Trump had won the election.
“I don’t like him,” Bush told historian Mark Updegrove in May 2016, according to The New York Times. “I don’t know much about him, but I know he’s a blowhard. And I’m not too excited about him being a leader.” Bush added that Trump appeared to be driven by “a certain ego.”
Updegrove’s book, “The Last Republicans,” deals with the relationship between the senior Bush and his son, former President George W. Bush. The title was inspired by a quote from the younger Bush, who told him during the 2016 election, “I’m worried that I will be the last Republican president.”
“And it wasn’t just about Hillary Clinton becoming president, as the Republican Party was having a difficult time finding itself,” Updegrove told CNN. “It was because Donald Trump represented everything that the Bushes abhorred.”
The elder Bush also said that he voted for Clinton in 2016, while his son said he voted for “none of the above” as president and Republican candidates on the rest of the ballot.
Their newly revealed criticisms of Trump come just weeks after George W. Bush appeared to criticize the president at a New York policy seminar, though he didn’t mention Trump by name.
“We have seen our discourse degraded by casual cruelty,” Bush said. “We’ve seen nationalism distorted into nativism, forgotten the dynamism that immigration has always brought to America.”
The White House responded to news of the criticisms Saturday morning, saying in a statement, “If one Presidential candidate can disassemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had.”
Though liberals have historically been sharp critics of the younger Bush — for reasons including the decision to invade Iraq, a slow and widely panned response to Hurricane Katrina, and his administration’s wholesale embrace of torture — his star has risen in the Trump era. In the wake of Trump’s frequent inflammatory comments and constant ad hominem attacks on Twitter, many people seem to long for a president who maintained a relatively more dignified demeanor.
An October survey showed that 51 percent of Democrats hold at least a somewhat favorable view of Bush. On Friday, former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann — who has previously called Bush a fascist and a liar — said he owed Bush an apology and would prefer a third Bush term to Trump as president. Last year, the public went wild with glee over a photo showing Bush and Michelle Obama enjoying a brief embrace.
All the newfound nostalgia seems to ignore just how terrible many people ― especially Democrats ― thought Bush’s presidency was at the time. For many, his lasting legacies are a disastrous Iraq war and the spread of chaos in the Middle East, as well as the financial crisis beginning during his second term. Some have argued those very conditions helped fuel the rise of the far right in the United States and abroad, paving the way for Trump to get elected.
