    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...

    Texas General Land Office Commissioner George P. Bush issued a statement that called on all Americans to stand against "white terrorism" Saturday after a gunman who espoused white supremacist views in a manifesto killed at least 18 in El Paso. Bush, son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), said Saturday evening that "white terrorism" was a "real and present threat that we must all denounce and defeat." "I believe fighting terrorism remains a national priority," Bush said. "And that should include standing firm against white terrorism." "There have now been multiple attacks from self-declared white terrorists here in the...

    Left-wing actress turned activist Alyssa Milano thinks former Florida governor and failed Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush should “seriously” consider launching a presidential bid against President Trump. “If [I] were @JebBush, I’d seriously be considering a run,” Milano said to her 3.6 million Twitter followers. The tweet could signal hesitancy among Democrats. While over 20 candidates are vying to challenge Trump in 2020, some Democrats – such as Milano – are actively hoping for a Republican to successfully primary the president as well. Noted Never Trumper and former Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) teased the possibility of challenging President Trump...

    “Why the hell would Jeb Bush post this today?”     Governor Jeb Bush provoked a backlash after he sent a strange tweet about presidents who died on July 4, with many taking it as a veiled dig at President Trump.“Three Presidents Die on July 4th: Just a Coincidence?” tweeted Bush along with a link to a story which explained how, “Three Founding Father Presidents—John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Monroe—died on July 4.”

    Another Republican has hopped on the impeachment train. After the Mueller report detailed President Trump's failure to take what Michael Gerson calls "a criminal plot by a hostile foreign government" to the FBI, the chief speechwriter for former President George W. Bush writes that "House leaders should lay the groundwork for impeachment." This move strays from politics' usual goals of "partisanship" and "endless fundraising," Gerson continues in his Monday op-ed for The Washington Post, but adds that this choice will "echo across the decades."

    President Donald Trump suggested in a new interview that former first lady Barbara Bush had a right to be "nasty" to him after his long-running criticisms of her sons. "I have heard that she was nasty to me, but she should be. Look what I did to her sons," Trump told The Washington Times in an Oval Office interview Thursday. Trump was responding to anecdotes in a new biography of Barbara Bush by Susan Page, who writes that at the time of her death, the former first lady no longer considered herself a Republican due to Trump's rise. During the...

    President Trump said in an interview Thursday that he wasn’t surprised Barbara Bush is quoted dissing him in a new book — because he campaigned so harshly against the former first lady’s children. “I have heard that she was nasty to me, but she should be,” he told the Washington Times in an interview. “Look what I did to her sons,” he added. Trump was responding to a question about a new biography of Barbara Bush, published after she died, that reveals the former first lady was extremely critical of him going back to the 1990s. The biography, “The Matriarch:...

    here are no Americans in America and no history of America — just immigrants and their “story,” says a new video by former President George W. Bush’s Bush Center. “America’s story is an immigrant story,” says the video. “Now as before, American is a nation of immigrants,” says the video which refers to 280 million Americans — including many who voted for George W. Bush in 2000 — merely as an unnamed blob of “population,” “labor force,” “workers,” and even “natives.” American would be weak without immigrants, the video argues, as it declares that “immigrants make America strong.”

    Recently, former Republican governor and failed 2016 candidate Jeb Bush, a vocal critic of then-candidate Donald Trump who has remained so throughout his presidency, urged a Republican to challenge the incumbent Trump in the upcoming election. After implying that President Trump’s ideas aren’t challenging to Democrats, as well as questioning Trump’s conservatism, Bush said he hoped “someone” would run – and quickly caught the attention of the president’s son, Donald Trump Junior. “I personally think it should be Jeb,” suggested Don Jr., noting the “limp exclamation point” in reference to Bush’s “Jeb!” campaign slogan, before asking, “or was the first...

    RUSH: Here is Patrick in Brecksville, Ohio. Great to have you, sir. CALLER: Hi, Rush. How are you? Mega dittos, 1991 dittos. You know, with the Bush funeral, I’ve had a real hard time, you know, kind of feeling my normal grief or normal respect for him. I respect him. I think he was a fantastic man. But given how cynical I’ve become on so many things and sort of his lack of fighting back and what the Republicans have done over the last 40 years, I find it really hard now to have as much, you know, respect or...

    George H.W. Bush, the 41st U.S. president and father of the 43rd president George W. Bush, died on November 30, 2018, at the age of 94. He passed away less than eight months after his wife, former first lady Barbara Bush, died at the age of 92. The former president will lie in state in U.S. Capitol from Monday to Wednesday. There will be a state funeral for George H.W. Bush on Wednesday at the Washington National Cathedral, and a memorial service for the former president will be held on Thursday in Houston. He will be laid to rest at...

    The Bush family has taken great care to assure that services being held to honor the life and legacy of former President George H.W. Bush do not become a political platform for anti-Trump swipes. Such rhetoric was prominent in services for the late Sen. John McCain three months ago. But with the Bush family patriarch's casket lying in State at the U.S. Capitol this week ahead of Wednesday services in Washington, efforts have been made to avoid a politicized funeral. The family already contacted the White House this past summer saying that President Trump would be welcome at H.W. Bush’s...

    WASHINGTON – Jeb Bush wasn’t invited to niece Barbara Bush’s surprise weekend wedding, it was revealed Wednesday. Former first lady Laura Bush said the former Florida governor and failed presidential candidate didn’t make the cut for the small-scale, and short notice, Oct. 7 nuptials — in which her eldest daughter with former President George W. Bush married actor Craig Coyne. “Well, I think Barbara just kept it a secret, plus so few people were invited,” the former FLOTUS told journalist Cokie Roberts, who interviewed her on stage at an event in Washington, DC. “It was just our family and Craig’s...

    Jeb Bush criticized President Trump's controversial tweets about the death toll in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. "Incredibly disheartening comments from our President," Bush tweeted Thursday. Trump beat the former Florida governor for the Republican nomination for president in 2016. Trump sparked controversy earlier Thursday when he tweeted that the estimated 3,000 death toll was intentionally inflated by Democrats. The 3,000 approximation comes from a George Washington University study that tried to total how many "excess deaths" occurred because of Hurricane Maria and would not have happened in the absence of the cyclone. Those involved with the study have emphasized...

    Jeb Bush, who unsuccessfully ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016, told CNBC on Thursday he feels like a "fish out of water" in the current state of divisiveness in America. Asked if he'd ever consider running for president again, the 66-year-old former Florida governor said: "I don't know. I love policy. I love my country. But this political environment right now, I'm not suited for. To be honest with you. I'm a fish out of water. I can't imagine having to attack someone to make yourself look strong." In the "Squawk Box" interview, Bush said he did not...

    Donald Trump Jr. has canceled a fundraiser he was scheduled to hold for Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush after multiple members of the Bush family levied harsh criticism at President Donald Trump’s administration for its enforcement of immigration laws. The barrage began earlier this week when former First Lady Laura Bush (the wife of former president and Texas governor George W. Bush and George P. Bush’s aunt) wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post in which she called Trump’s handling of illegal immigration “immoral,” a narrative pushed by national Democrats and, in Texas, retiring Texas House Speaker Joe Straus....

    Press Secretary Sarah Sanders fired both barrels at former first lady Laura Bush during Monday’s White House press briefing. Sanders was asked about an op-ed Bush wrote for the far-left Washington Post, where she compared the necessary and moral separation of migrant children from their illegal alien parents to the Japanese American internment camps built by Democrat president and icon Franklin Roosevelt. Sanders held nothing back in pointing out Bush’s hypocrisy. And, frankly, this law was actually signed into effect in 2008 under her husband’s leadership, not under this administration,” she added. “We’re not the one’s responsible for creating this...
