George HW Bush: Trump is a blowhard!

George H.W. Bush Called Trump A 'Blowhard' And Said, 'I Don't Like Him'

An upcoming book shows that former President George H.W. Bush did not mince words when asked about President Donald Trump, back before Trump had won the election.

“I don’t like him,” Bush told historian Mark Updegrove in May 2016, according to The New York Times. “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.” Bush added that Trump appeared to be driven by “a certain ego.”

Updegrove’s book, “The Last Republicans,” deals with the relationship between the senior Bush and his son, former President George W. Bush. The title was inspired by a quote from the younger Bush, who told him during the 2016 election, “I’m worried that I will be the last Republican president.”

“And it wasn’t just about Hillary Clinton becoming president, as the Republican Party was having a difficult time finding itself,” Updegrove told CNN. “It was because Donald Trump represented everything that the Bushes abhorred.”

The elder Bush also said that he voted for Clinton in 2016, while his son said he voted for “none of the above” as president and Republican candidates on the rest of the ballot.

There's more.

Blow·hard:

A person who blusters and boasts in an unpleasant way.

YEP. That's Trump.

Probably several of them voted for Hillary Clinton because they are very good friends with the Clintons, and the way Trump beat on Jeb (this would be the question I would ask Poppy Bush, why did a wealthy blue blood give his son a hillbilly, trailer park name?). Trump basically attacked their whole family, so they are not going to be supporters of him.

As I recall, Trump didn't mince words about Jeb.

I'm glad he didn't. Jeb deserved it. The whole family does. As a matter of fact, the entire GOP deserves the Trojan horse It's let in. Imagine that, a dying party betrayed by the very youth they took in. How ironic that their death comes not at the hands of the left, but at the hands of their own sons and daughters. Sorry Dubya, but the elephant isn't for me. Now the frog is an animal we can really rebuild the party around.
