Barbara Bush says 'angst' over Trump caused heart problems, new book says.
NBC News ^ | 3/27/19 | Allan Smith

Barbara Bush so fiercely disliked President Donald Trump that she blamed him for what she called a heart attack and, by the end of her life, she no longer considered herself a Republican.

"I'd probably say no today," she told Page in an October 2017 interview on whether she was still a Republican.

Those were excerpts, released Wednesday, of an upcoming biography of Bush by USA Today's Susan Page, who spoke with the former first lady extensively in the final months of her life. Bush died last April and her husband, 41st President George H.W. Bush, died in November.

This is just silly. My father died during the first Obama administration. He was spared the “second term, Baby.” Oh, he was also 90 years old.

But Clinton and Obama was all joy, peace, and love for these privileged globalists. The Bushes are utterly sickening.

That's not a physiological problem. That's a mental issue.

If you’re not a conservative you’re bound over time to turn into a brain dead lib.

The GOP clearly never had a chance with these people. None of them were fighters. You see this with the McConnell’s ad Ryans of Congress.

They would smart to get behind this man....now..

Good thing she didn’t start babbling about all that money the Bush family made with the 9/11 Saudis.

Oh, Dad was born in Chicago. I’m not sure if he still considered himself a Chicagoan when “the One” ascended.

The whole Bush clan have been exposed by events as indifferent elitists who have had contempt for average Americans and their legitimate concerns. They pretended to be nice to the masses under the tradition of noblesse oblige. Otherwise, forget it. They never were interested in you.

The Bushes were always bad news. I liked W briefly after 9/11 but his apparent patriotism after that event quickly morphed into big government tyranny and globalism.

And this is why we utterly rejected her other son!!

George W. won Ohio barely twice. Trump won it by eight points. And Trump won Michigan and Wisconsin as well, which George W. couldn’t and Barbara’s husband lost (to the execrable Clintons!).

Golly gee, who was more in touch with the republican electorate and who seems to be more in touch with the democrats??
