On November 8, 2019, in a Fox News interview with “Never Trumper” Dana Perino, former President George W. Bush, 73, lamented the chaotic political climate in the United States.
As reported by Politico‘s Caitlin Oprysko, Bush said he expected the ship to right itself although he may not live to see that day: “I’m optimistic about the future because as you mentioned democracy is self-healing. This is an unsettled period in our country, but it isn’t the first time we have had unsettled periods. I won’t be around to see my grandkids thrive and prosper, but I am convinced the world they’ll be entering into will be unique and full of all kinds of possibilities.”
Politico reporter Oprysko writes:
The former president was no doubt alluding, at least in part, to the current occupant of the White House, with whom his family has had a running feud. Bush has made no secret of his disdain for Trump’s brash rhetoric, especially after the vitriolic campaign Trump ran against his brother Jeb during the 2016 election cycle.
While he’s strayed from naming Trump specifically and mostly steered clear of politics during the Trump-era, Bush offered a scathing rebuke of Trumpism when his presidency was just months old.
In a 2017 speech, Bush bemoaned that American discourse had been “degraded by casual cruelty,” seen “nationalism distorted into nativism,” and witnessed “the return of isolationist sentiments” in recent years.
About the pic, see my post “George W. Bush’s love-fest with Michelle ‘Big Mike’ Obama”.
Bush, who kept quiet for 8-long and miserable years while Barack Hussien Obama destroyed this country with his twisted, failed policies, just can’t shut up now that an anti-globalist is in the White House.
There’s nothing that will make globalist G.W. Bush go on the attack like seeing an old fashioned America First President in action. God forbid the president places the needs of his people and his country above lobbyists and defense department contractors.
The failed former president didn’t use Trump’s name during the interview but he didn’t have to. See, Americans are not as dumb as our elected officials think we are.
Bush says he believes that America will “right itself” but he may not live to see it.
