Skip to comments.Both Bush Presidents Lash Out At Trump, GHW Confirms He Voted For Hillary
Posted on 11/04/2017 7:43:01 PM PDT by blam
The fading Republican establishment remains unable to reconcile its ongoing collapse, and continues to scapegoat Donald Trump for all the GOPs troubles instead of looking in the mirror.
Two weeks after an outraged George W. Bush lashed out at Trump, accusing him of emboldening bigotry and white supremacy, on Saturday we learn just how deep the animosity toward Trump runs within the extended Bush household. In a new book to be released this month from historian Mark Updegrove, titled The Last Republicans, and previewed on Saturday by the NYT and CNN, former President George H.W. Bush said he considers Trump a blowhard, only interested in feeding his own ego. Meanwhile, his son, former President George W. Bush, thinks Trump fans public anger and came to office without any understanding of the job.
When asked about Donald Trump in May 2016, GHW Bush said: I dont like him I dont know much about him, but I know hes a blowhard. And Im not too excited about him being a leader.
His son was just as vocal: Wow, this guy doesnt know what it means to be president, the junior Bush said, indicating that a president should not exploit the anger, incite it but rather come up with ideas to deal with it.
In any case, both former presidents worry that Mr. Trump has blown up a Republican Party that they spent two lifetimes building; Dubya also told Updegrove: Im worried that I will be the last Republican president.

FAMILY before GOD & COUNTRY.
Yes, and arrogant contempt for the American people.
That dull look in the Bush faces was real.
Hmmmm...what got their shorts in a wad? The brewing Saudi Arabia stuff?
Glad JEB lost. He should never have run. He looks like Barbara dropped him on his head.
Just confirming what I have thought about the whole bunch of Bushs for a long time.
Well...there ya have it, pardner......
Buh-Bye Bush, et. al.....
Both bush’s were bitter disappointments. Yet we stuck with them and supported them (more or less). Neither of them would say a God Damned thing about Øbongo when he was systematically looting our country.
Now all of a sudden they’ve found their voices. At a critical crossroads that spells survival and prosperity on one hand or complete destruction and ruin on the other hand they are choosing to consort with our nations enemies (dhimmicrats).
F them, I’m done with them.
Did he vote for Hillary before or after all the accusations of inappropriate conduct?
Bush the Elder squandered the Reagan legacy. Bush II destroyed the GOP brand by 2008, which was only re-built by the very conservative rabble they detest. They can kiss my arse rnning.
I thought then and still think he was forced on the ticket by TPTB....a nod to the elitist rich barons...
he was a joke as a prez in retrospect...he lost even after winning Desert Storm 1....
Theirs is an entitlement mentality. THEY know better than anyone else. Only idiots could possibly think Trump should be chosen over Jeb...
Theirs is a blindness that, to their way of thinking, excuses the insult they deliver to the American public that elected Trump over Jeb, then elected him over Hillary.
No use attacking trump, I say to both George Bushes, WE put him there, WE are responsible.
WE don’t like how the elite establishment has deserted the real needs of this nation while lording it over the little people in flyover country...
>>In any case, both former presidents worry that Mr. Trump has blown up a Republican Party that they spent two lifetimes building
Reagan was an anomaly in the GOP. The Bushes are the norm. This deceptive party of fake conservatism needs to end. The Bush family is just doing what globalist Progressives do. For decades, our nation could afford to spend itself into debt and pass the payments on to the future generations, so the globalism worked well and it financed the creeping Progressivism that the Democrat wing of the Progs would pass.
Now, we are the future generation and we can’t afford the credit card bill anymore.
And both of GW’s daughters probably voted for Hillary.
bammy did all these horrible things to our country and destroyed American pride....crickets...
Tariff is the most anti progressive tax.
