    Neil Cavuto lamented the polarization of today’s society after a photo of daytime talk show host Ellen Degeneres sitting and smiling beside former President George W. Bush was criticized. “Sides don’t just disagree, they must be disagreeable, and they must stick to script,” said Cavuto on “Your World” on Tuesday. “A liberal must never sit with a conservative, a conservative must never utter a kind word about a liberal. It’s the same reason why a never-Trumper can’t be a now-and-then-Trumper. You’re either all in or just out. Say one thing bad you’re just bad,” Cavuto said. […] “Like [Degeneres] said,...

    A former adviser to 2016 GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush is pushing House Democrats to impeach President Trump and force Republican senators to vote on Trump's fitness for office. Republican political consultant Mike Murphy called out Democrats in an op-ed for the Washington Post published on Tuesday. Murphy said the time has come to force the impeachment question because of recent revelations of Trump's dealings with Ukraine and the president's asking a foreign government to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, a political opponent. "The new sins are too big and too obvious," Murphy writes

    One of George W. Bush's daughters panned President Trump after he criticized Rep. Elijah Cummings and called the Democrat's Baltimore-based district a "disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess." Jenna Bush Hager, who is a co-host on Today with Hoda & Jenna, reacted to a clip of Baltimore-born CNN anchor Victor Blackwell tearing up as he defended his hometown. "I taught in West Baltimore. I adore my kids, their parents, and grandparents. They all want the same thing I want for my kids: the chance for their children to have safe, happy and productive lives. Let’s think about the language we...

    President Trump announced Friday that he would un-sign the global arms pact known as the Arms Trade Treaty in the latest illustration of his aversion to international pacts and world governance. “We will never allow foreign bureaucrats to trample on your Second Amendment freedom,” Trump said during a speech before the National Rifle Association in Indianapolis. “I’m officially announcing today that the United States will be revoking the effect of America’s signature from this badly misguided treaty.” The origins of the treaty, which sets out international rules for sales and transfers of everything from small arms to large planes and...

    Full Title JUST IN: Jeb Bush Super PAC Hit with Massive FEC Fine For Accepting $1.3 Million in Illegal Donations From Chinese Corporation The Intercept has determined that a corporation owned by a Chinese couple made a major donation to Jeb Bush’s Super PAC Right to Rise USA — and it did so after receiving detailed advice from Charlie Spies, arguably the most important Republican campaign finance lawyer in American politics. The Spies memo was dated February 19, 2015. One month later, American Pacific International Capital Inc., a California corporation owned by Gordon Tang and Huaidan Chen, a married couple...

    Alan J. Steinberg—who served as an adviser to former President George W. Bush—wrote in an opinion piece published this week that he didn’t believe President Donald Trump would be removed from office through impeachment. Steinberg, a former Environmental Protection Agency regional administrator, said that he believed Trump would resign in 2019 in exchange for immunity. “Trump will not be removed from office by the constitutional impeachment and removal process,” Steinberg wrote in The Star-Ledger. “Instead, the self-professed supreme dealmaker will use his presidency as a bargaining chip with federal and state authorities in 2019, agreeing to leave office in exchange...

    In a packed room in College Hall on Wednesday night, former Governor of Florida Jeb Bush gave his first talk at Penn since being named the second Presidential Practice Professor. Bush addressed the partisan nature in politics today and the lack of dialogue that exists across the aisle, urging conservatives to return to the idea that America is the land of opportunity. The event, co-hosted by the Andrea Mitchell Center for the Study of Democracy and Penn Political Union, focused on the state of American democracy and what Bush calls increased “tribal tendencies” in partisan politics in a time of...

    Vladimir Putin, wannabe cowboy and newly minted close buddy of President Bush, eagerly wanted to ride a horse in Texas, so he may have been disappointed to learn that Bush zips around his ranch in a Ford pickup. That's what was awaiting the Putins as they landed at the Bush ranch outside Waco in midafternoon. The Bushes, in ranch gear and carrying umbrellas to shield their guests from the rain, met the casually attired Putins when they arrived by helicopter for an overnight and barbecue at the Bush home. "The president brought the rain, for which we're always grateful in...

    Hillary Clinton said, "Jesus Christ said, 'Suffer the little children unto me' not 'let the little children suffer.'" Three former first ladies — Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush and Michelle Obama — have stepped out their political retirement to condemn the Trump administration's practice of separating parents and children at the border while parents are prosecuted for illegally entering the country. Speaking at a women's group in New York City on Monday, Clinton called family separation "an affront to our values" and said she had warned Trump's immigration policy would lead to this during her 2016 presidential campaign against him. And...

    Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is calling on President Donald Trump to end the “heartless” policy of separating immigrant children from their parents at the U.S. border. “Children shouldn’t be used as a negotiating tool,” Bush tweeted on Monday. “@realDonaldTrump should end this heartless policy and Congress should get an immigration deal done that provides for asylum reform, border security and a path to citizenship for Dreamers.” The failed presidential candidate’s plea came in response to President Trump’s tweet in which he vowed to stop “some of the worst criminals on earth,” from using children to illegally enter the U.S....

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...

You have to have a deeper strategy than just building a fence.”

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush told skeptical voters Friday that he would not soften his views on immigration or education to win their backing. On his opening foray into New Hampshire for his likely campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, Bush challenged voters here to spend time learning about the issues and avoid shrill partisan sniping. He said “facts don’t matter” to some of his critics and told his first political audience in the state in 15 years that true leaders do not shrink from their beliefs for political expediency.

Bush during the official launch of the 43rd president’s book at his dad’s presidential library center at Texas A&M University. “He ought to run for president. He would make a great president.” “We can pressure him all we want, but it’s not going to matter. … You can’t...

White House officials did not immediately respond to questions about the subject of the meeting and its exclusion...
