Family split: 'Tension' over Trump at George W. Bush staff reunion in Washington
Wash Examiner ^ | Sep 9 2019 | David M Drucker

Differences over President Trump reverberated during a weekend reunion bash for White House alumni of George W. Bush, exposing rifts in the network of Republican operatives and officials.

Matt Schlapp, a lobbyist and enthusiastic Trump supporter who served as political director in the Bush White House, had to be convinced to attend the reunion by a fellow "Bushie," often a term of scorn in the Trump White House, after he expressed fears of being confronted. Another Bush administration veteran, sometimes critical of Trump and sometimes not, was accosted at the gathering by a former colleague and accused of being too pro-Trump.

Both the Never Trump and pro-Trump factions are outspoken, rarely hesitating to criticize each other despite their shared Bush roots. That was the case as approximately 2,500 of them met for a few days in Washington to reminisce about old times

Good. In politics, especially in corrupt, insider, beltway bubble DC, people should be forced to confront contradictions and make public choices constantly.

This gathering sounds like it has all the appeal of a NAMBLA convention.

Bush veterans such as Schlapp have a hard time understanding the resistance to Trump. The president has delivered on key Republican priorities...

The Bushites hate it because "key Republican priorities" is nothing more than a sham front, not reality. It's a Potemkin Village for the GOP masses.

This Will Totally Destroy Trump! (Volume MCXXXVII)

“Well, ________________ is going to totally be the thing that lets us crucify Trump! Yeah, Russia flopped and his alleged Nazi-ness failed and that weasel ex-lawyer/convict of his struck out, but we promise – this time, ___________ is going to bring him down!”

So saith CNN, the Times, the gang at LonelyNeckbeardedLeftistLoser.com and the rest of the cabinboy media, along with the carb-curious Fredocon dorks and the surviving furries, pseudo-Cherokees and other assorted Democrat weirdos currently wandering about in Iowa pestering farmers to join them for selfies. There’s always a new _____________, except the “bring him down” part just never seems to happen.

No coffee for the liberal establishment, because coffee is for closers (NSFW language, sissies). These geebos have been trying to close the deal since 2015, but all they have to do it with are the Rio Rancho leads – they never get the Glengarry leads that will put a stake through the heart of the Bad Orange Man.

The Clinonista reunions were probably held at Epstein’s island.

How funny.

Doesn't really matter what the Bushy's think......the American public made the choice for Trump, so get over it....AND yourself.
