Posted on 11/04/2017 10:37:06 AM PDT by Hadean
Former President George W. Bush and his father, former President George H.W. Bush, both criticize President Trump in a new book to be released this month, with George W. Bush admitting that, despite Trumps political affiliation, hes worried that I will be the last Republican president.
George H.W. Bush also calls Trump a blowhard in the book, The Last Republicans, by Mark K. Updegrove, which was previewed by The New York Times and CNN on Friday.
"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, the senior Bush said, according to the author. He also commented on Trumps ego.
Wow, this guy doesn't know what it means to be president, the younger Bush said. He indicated that a president should not exploit the anger, incite it but rather come up with ideas to deal with it.
Neither man voted for Trump in the last election, and George H.W. Bush confirms in the book that he voted for Hillary Clinton. George W. Bush said he left the top of his ballot blank and did not vote for Clinton because she has bad judgment.

From your lips to Gods ear, Georgie boy!
The truly sad thing is that you had us conservatives on your side during your presidency. You tricked us into believing you loved this country and wouldn’t sell us out. Never ever again will we be as gracious to republicans as we were during your term. Now we know how much you lied to us, took us for granted, wimped out against dem slime tactics, never fought back and pushed globalism. Now we have a fighter FOR the American people, we love love love Trump and you can’t stand it! Hahahahaha! Loooooooser
When were you ever a Republican??
George W -— I thought you changed your party to (D) in your second term, because you obviously were no longer a part of the real Republican party by then.
“After all the times Ive heard these phonies pontificate about how ex presidents should not inject themselves into current politics look at the way they gleefully savage Trump, in a way they NEVER did against Clinton or osamabama”.
Their true colors are showing brightly. They’re GOPe/Globalist bastards.
Hey GW: the last REAL Republican POTUS left office in 1989. Trump is the closest so far to that.
The last NWO PUKE RINO President. Fixed it
Okay well, FOAD
George W. Bush - The only man in history who couldn’t figure out how to put on a poncho.
Trump fights. Sometimes I cringe, sometimes I applaud. It still beats the Bushes!
I never cringe. The stuff you cringe at my response is BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. He actually said that? Priceless. PC is dead in the Trumpverse. The man has a pair of 3000 carat uncut diamond balls. That is each. 1.3 lb per. MAGA or go home.
So what about JEB! “Please clap.”
Removing boundaries to trade = making trade deals that benefit the ‘elites’ while hurting the American People.
Immigration = flooding the country with cheap illegal immigrants to keep wages low to help ‘elites’ while hurting American citizens.
Promoting democracy - joining in every war possible to keep elites in the Military Industrial Complex fully employed - while killing off young Americans.
Leadership in the world = American elites getting their butts kissed the world over for giving away hard earned tax dollars taken from American citizens.
Eff insensitive elitist jerks like the Bushes... if that’s their idea of ‘being Republican’ then thank God they’re the last...
[Dalberg-Acton:] Trump was talking about how women made themselves available to him. It was all about consenting adult activity. The Left has twisted that into a lie, but we dont have to spread the lie.
So in you're book it was not wrong for Trump to say, "And when youre a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab em by the pussy."? I guess we'll have to agree to disagree.
[RegulatorCountry:] Words and actions are two entirely different things.
Yes - like I said. Were Trump's words wrong, or not?
Trump was the logical next step after the Bushes? What did he expect?
The Bush clan has done for the Republican brand, the same that the Clinton clan has done for the Democrat brand. Both need to spend time with their families and STFU. 20 Trillion in debt and Norkies with nukes is their legacy.
He’s probably the last RINO Republican president. I like the “new” Republican face. Finally we really are making America Great Again ... and it just isn’t something put onto a hat.
I’ve said this before.....I’ve never been a trump fan and really don’t like the way he acts.....with that said trump is fighting more for conservative legislation better than any republican president in history...including Reagan.
I would vote for trump before I would vote for bush
Yes they were. The caveat to that comes from every other human being who is less than perfect, unlike you, who has made off-color remarks presumably in private, imagining the embarrassment and difficulties that would be associated with having such remarks aired in a highly public manner, as occured with then-candidate Donald Trump.
[From your lips to Gods ear, Georgie boy!]
This country will never elect a Boosh President again.
Jeb! knew he didn’t have a chance - he just had to draw off enough vote to get Sick Sister Hillary over the finish line and then it would be back to business as usual.
Jeb’s 3% showed what Americans think of the Booshes.
Yes they were.
Good to hear.
every other human being who is less than perfect, unlike you
Straw man and ad hominem.
