The Bush family cabal has just released a book, by way of Mark K. Updegrove, called The Last Republicans (hint: it’s about Them. How kyyyoooooote). In it, Bush Prezes forty-one and forty-three demonstrate nearly palpable courage in saying painfully wussy things way too late about a man who is altogether too likely to use nuclear weapons, given enough time in the Oval Office:
“I don’t like him,” the elder Bush told author Mark K. Updegrove in May 2016. “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 ninety-something wheelchair bound Dad waited until long after the election to reveal his faultless wisdom. As did Junior. And as H.W. is currently enjoying a latent Twitter-infamy for groping a number of young women, I’d like to offer kudos for his timing.
According to the book, George H.W. Bush voted for Hillary Clinton last year (as it was reported he intended to do), while George W. Bush left the presidential slot on the ballot blank.
George W. Bush told Updegrove that he was surprised Trump won the nomination and presidency. He criticized Trump for his lack of humility, which he said was a guiding force among his own family. And when he heard Trump boasting about being his own adviser, Bush thought that Trump “doesn’t know what it means to be president,” Updegrove told CNN.
“I’m a war president!” Mr. Humble once explained. Because everybody else was being so darn arrogant, sheesh.
Trump of course has responded in his ‘I Have The Greatest Memory’ way:
