    Former President George W. Bush called Rep. Jim Clyburn (R-SC) a “savior” at the inauguration of Joe Biden on Wednesday. Biden won the Democrat nomination despite having significant cognitive impairments due in large part due to the endorsement of Clyburn, who had no problem giving his blessing for a total derelict to run the country. “I know Joe Biden. I know his character, his heart, and his record. Joe Biden has stood for the hard-working people of South Carolina. We know Joe. But more importantly, he knows us,” Clyburn wrote in a tweet prior to the crucial South Carolina primary....

    Former President George W. Bush leveled criticisms at Republicans for fueling the riots on Capitol Hill with lies about the 2020 presidential election. “Laura and I are watching the scenes of mayhem unfolding at the seat of our Nation’s government in disbelief and dismay,” he wrote in a statement. “It’s a sickening and heartbreaking sight.”

    Republican former President George W. Bush derided the rioters who forced a shutdown of the House and Senate chambers of the US Capitol on Wednesday, calling the scene "sickening and heartbreaking" in a pointed statement. "This is how election results are disputed in a banana republic -- not our democratic republic. I am appalled by the reckless behavior of some political leaders since the election and by the lack of respect shown today for our institutions, our traditions, and our law enforcement. The violent assault on the Capitol -- and disruption of a Constitutionally-mandated meeting of Congress -- was undertaken...

    1. Finally we hear from George W. Bush. He congratulated Biden before canvassing, recounts, and litigation are completed in states where the vote was extremely close.— Mark R. Levin (@marklevinshow) November 8, 2020 2. In 2000, he refused to concede while all this was going on in a single state for 37 days. So the leftwing media pat him on the head and thank him. Truly appalling. Back to painting, George. https://t.co/Z9wO6mHOJ3— Mark R. Levin (@marklevinshow) November 8, 2020

    CNN ^ | Nov 8 | By Eric Bradner,
    Former President George W. Bush congratulated President-elect Joe Biden in a phone call Sunday and said that, while President Donald Trump has the right to pursue legal challenges and recounts, the 2020 race was "fundamentally fair" and "its outcome is clear." The gesture by Bush, the only living former Republican president, was a break from his party's outgoing president, Trump, who has so far refused to concede the race. In the statement, Bush said he had called Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on Sunday. "Though we have political differences, I know Joe Biden to be a good man, who...

    he George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum opened seven years ago and anchors the southeastern corner of campus at Southern Methodist University, where I teach history. In late November 2016, I took a tour of the facility with five college friends who were visiting from the East Coast. The recent presidential election was much on our minds as we wandered through the building, contemplating various artifacts from Bush’s two terms in office. Although we were hardly fans of his presidency, one of my pals—fearful, like everyone in our group, of a Trump administration—got misty-eyed when reflecting upon Bush’s obvious...

    KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine — Former President George W. Bush on Friday backed Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine in his first public endorsement of the 2020 election cycle. [Cut] “She’s honest. She’s forthright. She brings dignity into a world that has gotten really ugly. The political world is uglier than I can ever remember it,” Bush said after he and his wife, Laura, had lunch with Collins at the family’s summer home overlooking the ocean. Bush called her “smart and capable,” “very influential” and “pretty darned independent.”

    Former President George W. Bush will not support President Trump in his effort to seek reelection this year. People familiar with his thinking told the New York Times the 43rd president won't back his fellow Republican, who will likely face former Vice President Joe Biden in the general election. Freddy Ford, a spokesman for Bush, said the former president plans to speak out only on policy issues.

    Isn't it time for W to come off the sidelines, forgive the nickname for Jeb! and help Trump manage the politics of the moment, the hatred and vitriol aimed at him by, in some cases former members of his administration? Much like 9/11, this is a moment when the Nation must come together. We already know the left will never relent. Where are you, Mr. President?

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spilled to Sirius XM host Howard Stern what former President George W. Bush said to her about President Donald Trump. CNN recapped Clinton’s wide-ranging interview Thursday, showing several highlights during a segment of “New Day.” Clinton spoke with Stern at length about the 2016 campaign and how she felt at Trump’s Inauguration in January of 2017.

    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...

Cruz once worked for the former commander in chief, both on Bush’s presidential campaign and then in his administration. The senator also met his wife, Heidi, while working for Bush’s campaign, leading him to say that he “will always be grateful” to the former president…

    President George W. Bush on Thursday issued a thinly veiled warning about the state of American democracy under the current president, arguing that "bigotry seems emboldened" and politics is "more vulnerable" to conspiracy theories. Speaking at the George W. Bush Institute's "The Spirit of Liberty: At Home, in the World," a national forum in New York City, the former president warned that the trend in Western countries of moving away from democratic confidence and global engagement is seeping into American culture. Parts of Europe, Bush said, have developed an "identity crisis" as a result of economic stagnation, youth unemployment and...

    Former President George W. Bush appears to have discovered a new pastime: virtue-signaling. On Thursday, the 43rd president piously delivered a full beat down on President Trump and the populist and economic nationalist movement that elected him. Bush even traveled from Dallas to New York City to deliver it—just to make sure that nobody in Manhattan missed his message, which basically amounted to: I’m a good guy, unlike you-know-who. So look: I just dumped on Donald Trump! Please like me now, finally! Yes, this is the same Bush who kept silent during the Obama years. But now that a Republican...

At an event hosted by the George W. Bush Institute, the 43rd U.S. president rattled off a thinly veiled litany of complaints about the current commander-in-chief, focusing on both his tone and his isolationist policy choices.

    Former President George W. Bush said Thursday that "bigotry seems emboldened" in the modern U.S. He also warned that the U.S. needs to accept "globalization" and reject "white supremacy." He criticized the “governing class” without specifically mentioning President Trump. "Discontent deepened and sharpened partisan conflicts" in recent years, he observed during a speech for the George W. Bush Institute. "Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seem more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication."
