Former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush have voiced concern about the current political climate in the US, in comments seen as a veiled rebuke of Donald Trump's leadership.
Mr. Obama urged Americans to reject the politics of "division" and "fear", while Mr. Bush criticized "bullying and prejudice" in public life.
They were speaking separately. Neither mentioned President Trump by name.......

So we get this.
The apologists for the system will label this #FakeNews and attack the biased BBC for reporting it, but even the Devil tells the truth some of the time.
Its #RealNews and it reminds me again why I voted to elect Donald J. Trump President of the United States.
How ironic since those two are the main reason Trump is president.
Mr. Tweedledeedee and Mr. Tweedledeedum.
My respect for George W. Bush has dropped like a rock.
We are truly living in interesting times. This is epic.
There are some signs that the intensity of support for democracy itself has waned, especially among the young, who never experienced the galvanizing moral clarity of the Cold War, or never focused on the ruin of entire nations by socialist central planning
It was Glenn Beck who said that “Globalism” was good if it had “conservative principles” in it, so I guess W was channeling “Conservative Globalism” in his words while Barack Obama channels “Progressive Globalism” with his.
Of course the operative word in both men’s words is ‘Globalism’.
This filthy political system and its front people and hacks from Fox News, National Review, Washington Examiner, Mark Levin, National Rifle Association, National Right to Life etc. so many more for the Republicans.
Then the ones for the Democrats like MSNBC, Rachel Maddow, Planned Parenthood, the NAACP etc. etc.
These clowns tell us its hell or heaven, up or down, in or out, God or Satan, life or death when we choose between the Republicans and Democrats.
“We the People” need to stop being suckers for this pretend political system, this “rigged system” as Trump put it.
Yeah, get up and tell people what you guys did to the country. You divided it alright...and you’re making it worse. Both are pro-Muslim which equals death for people here.
Are these former presidents projecting their own guilt?
Obama certainly made worse or even created division and fear, especially racial division. He created fear by using the government (IRS, EPA, BLM, Justice, etc.) to attack his enemies, Republicans and conservatives.
Bush's foolish entitlement spending policies and the creation of TSA fostered bullying. His failure to call out destructive policies of the Obama administration showed his prejudice, not to mention his prejudice against the forgotten man. Bush stole the phrase "compassionate conservative" and misused it for political purposes.
“At times it can seem like the forces pulling us apart are stronger than the forces binding us together.”
What do you expect when you turn a country into an internal empire where more and more people have less and less in common? Both these aholes spent their entire presidencies flooding the country with 3rd World invaders, and shipping US jobs overseas, and turning the country into one of burger flippers, and salesman.
0bama spent his entire presidency stoking the flames of the racial grievance industry, and promoting Black Lies Matter’s hatred of the police.
I’d say that these two were the most divisive presidents in a couple of generations at least.
We know from years of experience that GWB is a poor communicator and what comes out of his mouth does not necessarily reflect what’s going on in his head. We also know from years of experience that BHO is, by intent, a serial liar.
In 2006, after 100,000s of mexicans waved their flag as they took over our streets, and Bush & some fellow travelers in the Legislature pushed immigration “reform,” Bush implied those opposed as racists. He lost me then.
Good news. At least Americans are ARMED to the teeth.
One is Pissed and the other is jealous .
0bama is losing his legacy bit by bit .
The Bush’s are no longer a winning brand .
There’s a new sheriff in town Donald J. Trump .. you all be cool now !
Better check Bush’s jacket for stains....
This election was against both of them.
Nothing we can do. Obama and his minions tried to provoke people into that so they could kill a bunch of people and our values prevented us from taking the bait. The bunch out west are suffering horribly because they showed up at that protest and the feds are going to see to it.
