Jeb and George Bush Stay Silent on Biden Endorsement While Speaking Out Against Trump

Although Jeb and George W. Bush have criticized President Donald Trump throughout his term in office and reportedly decided months ago not to vote for him, the siblings and politicians have not formally endorsed Joe Biden's campaign.

Their failure to do so has brought a wave of disapproving comments on social media over the past several days, with some pointing out that an endorsement from George, the only living former Republican president, could help the Democratic nominee.

"After the way Trump treated the Bush family and the way he's destroying America, you would think a Biden endorsement would be a no-brainer," one Twitter user wrote on Wednesday.

I feel filthy having voted for any Bush. They had us hoodwinked. Thank God for Trump.

Bush League Republicans always help the Democrat win when conservatives find a champion.
Yeb! and W. probably figure they help more by not endorsing.

So this is not a news story about them endorsing Biden - it is a news story about the social media mob being mad at them for not doing so in order to create a headline to give the impression they may do so - designed to divide the GOP on the eve of the election.

We need to convince Texas not to elect George P. Bush to anything else.

Sure, stand behind the guy who is having his corruption exposed. How long before the American people look at the republicans who back Biden and start asking how much they stole from America.

Biden and H.W. have something in common, they both get bored with debates and check their watches to see when they can leave and have their ice cream.

Good post. If I was Trump, I really would not want Bush 43’s approval.

Their only complaint against President Trump might be that they don’t like his style. Perhaps they’ll say they don’t like the corona virus spending. All his decisions have been conservative and pro-America.

But Biden is a corrupt crook.

It is not possible for them to support Biden and also claim to be conservatives.

It is not possible for them to be against corruption and also be pro-Biden.

At the time, I supported GWB in the face of unhinged, ideological, statist and Neo-marxist attacks when he was President.

But the guy never fought back, and in fact, we now know he kept building the corrupt, centralized deep state monolith that won’t yield to anyone who is not a member. Now he won’t speak out against it.

He can go to hell.

I am not sure, but I think Jeb actually endorsed Trump?
Not too enthusiastically, I recon.
Correct me if I am wrong.

They probably know that to say more would kill any chances for the younger Jorge Bush to move up in politics. I am sure they are voting for Joe and probably contributing to his campaign.

They keep saying this! I'd like to ask them how, exactly, is Trump "destroying" America. I bet none of them could give a coherent answer.

And based on the comments so far it was effective. A manufactured “news” story based entirely about comments made by some in the social media mob and nothing Bush has actually said or done in relation to an endorsement yields the same reaction as though an endorsement was made. It is a testament to how effective MSM propaganda still is - even here on FR.

That in itself shows their hypocrisy
