No matter who the older Bushes plans to vote for, there is little debate that the family that created two of the last three Republican presidents doesn’t see exactly in the eyes of the current White House occupant – and vice versa. .
“Oh, goodbye, I appreciate the message from former President Bush, but where he was during the Impeachment that called for partisanship to be abandoned.” @foxandfriends Nowhere was he found speaking against the greatest Hoax in American history! “
Heavy feelings go back – just as Trump has long used the image of Bushas as extreme insiders to burn his credentials.
“We need another Bush in office about as much as we need Obama for a third term,” Trump tweeted back in 2013. “No more Bush!”
As the 2016 campaign rose, Trump banned Jebu Bush, who in the early days of the race was briefly considered a leading runner, relentless attacks on his family legacy.
Trump, because he’s Trump, never apologized for everything he said about Jeb and the Bush family during elementary. And the Bush, while calmer because of their contempt for Trump, never actually withdrew.
Answer? Politics, clean and simple.
Also, not only would voters rebel against George P. P. Trump would enjoy the chance – either in the office or outside of it – once again working on the Bush family working to keep George P. from winning a senior state office victory. (If you don’t think Trump is vindictive enough to do just that, let me guide you all my life.) So George P. is doing the only thing he can do to preserve his political future: he stands in the absolute position of locking in with Trump.
In doing so, George P. provides support to a man who personally attacked his father, mother, uncle and grandfather at every turn.
Ah, politics. Not for the visually impaired heart. Or the stomach.
