    After the Washington Post claimed that Press Secretary Sean Spicer was “hiding in bushes” to avoid questions from reporters about FBI Director James Comey’s firing, the paper has once again had to admit that they published fake news. In an article titled “After Trump fired Comey, White House staff scrambled to explain why” by Jenna Johnson, she made the spectacular claim that Spicer had actually hid in bushes to avoid questions from the Washington elite media. “After Spicer spent several minutes hidden in the bushes near these sets, Janet Montesi, an executive assistant in the press office, emerged and told...
  • Washington Post Clarifies That Sean Spicer Hid ‘Among’ Bushes To Dodge Reporters

    The Washington Post threw some subtle shade at the Trump White House in issuing a correction on a story about Sean Spicer and his location among the bushes following the announcement of FBI Director James Comey’s termination. After an interview with Fox Business’s Lou Dobbs on Tuesday night, the White House press secretary “disappeared into the shadows, huddling with his staff behind a tall hedge” while news of Comey’s firing unfolded and reporters sought more information, WaPo’s Jenna Johnson reported on Wednesday. Later that day, an editor’s note was added to the bottom of Johnson’s story, clarifying that Spicer had...

    Former first lady Barbara Bush is missing two toes, her granddaughter Jenna Bush Hager revealed Monday. "My grandma's missing a toe on each foot," the daughter of former President George W. Bush told Kathie Lee Gifford on "Today." . . . Upon realizing that the former first lady may have never disclosed not having a full set of toes, Bush Hager appeared to regret revealing the personal details. "Ganny, I'm sorry! I shouldn't have said anything."

Bush: Media essential to democracy.And yet, how to account for this quote from 2004?

Bush confirms it. And the reporter then said: Well, how do you then know, Mr. President, what the public is thinking? And Bush, without missing a beat said: YouÂ’re...

    Lauren Bush Lauren, the former model who is a granddaughter of one former Republican president and the niece of another, is with her. Lauren, whose handbag and clothing company FEED Projects also provides meals to impoverished nations, posted a photo of Hillary Clinton to her Instagram account, captioning it “#ImWithHer us.” The post had garnered more than 4,000 likes on Facebook as of Monday afternoon. Lauren’s odd first name-last name combination comes from her marriage to David Lauren, the son of fashion designer Ralph Lauren. She is the daughter of Neil Bush, the fourth of six children of George H.W....

    Rumor out of Texas has it that the elder Bush will vote for Hillary Clinton. No word of denial issues from Pater, Dubya or Jeb. Thus, the fair minded conclude that this spectacularly unsuccessful one term President is not content with the mere achievement of failure in office -- scattering the Reagan coalition and handing the country to Bill Clinton in 1992 was a feat of political incompetence that at the time seemed beyond human capacity -- the old man now essays to add betrayal of his voter base to his sorry resume.

    Former President George H.W. Bush is bucking his party's presidential nominee and plans to vote for Hillary Clinton in November, according to a member of another famous political family, the Kennedys. Bush, 92, had intended to stay silent on the White House race between Clinton and Donald Trump, a sign in and of itself of his distaste for the GOP nominee. But his preference for the wife of his own successor, President Bill Clinton, nonetheless became known to a wider audience thanks to Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend, the former Maryland lieutenant governor and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy....

    Neither George W. Bush, the Republican Party nominee in 2000 and 2004, nor Jeb, the dethroned Prince of Wales, will be in Cleveland. Nor will John McCain or Mitt Romney, the last two nominees. These former leaders would like it thought that high principle keeps them away from a GOP convention that would nominate Donald Trump. Petulance, however, must surely play a part. Bush Republicans feel unappreciated, and understandably so. For Trump’s nomination represents not only a rejection of their legacy but a repudiation of much of post-Cold War party dogma. America crossed a historic divide and entered a new...

    Sorry I ever defended him and his corrupt clan... Apparently the Bushes are in the same boat as the Clintons now, where they're SO deeply indebted to various donors they're not able to retire -even if they wanted to- then ride quietly off into the sunset just because the voters want nothing to do with them...  These two boundlessly-greedy political dynasties will never go away unless shoved off the cliff- as this country is presently fixin to do. Perhaps Dubya was hoping a Jeb! administration could salvage his own legacy, just like GWB himself aspired to finish his father's unfinished chores...

    Riddle me this, fellow Republicans. An NBC survey April 9 reports that a huge majority (70%) of Americans doubts that Iran will abide by any agreement to limit its nuclear arms–but a majority (54%) still thinks Obama will do a better job than the Republicans in dealing with Iran! A majority of Americans – 54 percent – trust Barack Obama to do a better job handling an agreement with Iran over its nuclear program, compared to 42 percent who say they trust the Republicans in Congress. But nearly 7 in 10 Americans say that Iran is not likely to abide...

    Halper believes that the Clintons’ effort to in effect keep their friends close while turning enemies into friends has been a masterful and hugely overlooked part of the rebuilding of their machine: "What has been little understood in the past decade, from 2001 to the present, is how successfully the Clintons undertook a systematic, comprehensive, and sustained effort to win over leaders in the GOP, especially figures who were once the biggest critics. In return, both Clintons were able to develop a bipartisan, statesmanlike image that had eluded them through eight years in the White House."

    Enough already. If there’s nothing innately unhealthy about any individual child’s following a parent into politics, we still should look askance when the practice becomes habitual, and when the habit grows so common. The always-commonsensical Barbara Bush, when famously recommending against a Jeb Bush candidacy a few months ago by saying “we’ve had enough Bushes,” was making a broader point. “I think it’s a great country,” she said. “There are a lot of great families. It’s not just four families or whatever. There are other people out there that are very qualified.” In a nation of more than 300 million...

    Say No to a U.S.-EU Merger As negotiations continue toward immersing the United States in another sovereignty-compromising trade pact, it's hardly surprising to know that proper warnings were issued about such an agreement in The New American magazine five years ago. TNA's May 12, 2008 feature article entitled “Transatlantic Two-Step” reported that German Chancellor Angela Merkel and European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso met with President George W. Bush in the White House to discuss the ongoing negotiations that would tie our country with the European Union. In his statement at the close of the meeting, Mr. Bush didn’t...

    DALLAS (AP) — Making a rare return to the political arena, former President George W. Bush urged Congress on Wednesday to reach a "positive resolution" on immigration reform, an issue that eluded him during his presidency and now confronts fellow Republicans in the aftermath of a 2012 election drubbing. In brief remarks at a naturalization ceremony at his presidential library in Dallas, Bush avoided wading into the merits of specific legislation pending in Congress, but said it was important for lawmakers to recognize the benefits of immigration to the nation's future. While he didn't directly endorse a Senate-approved plan his...

    ATWOOD, Mich. (AP) — For northern Michigan fruit grower Pat McGuire, the most potent symbol of the immigration debate isn't grainy television footage showing people slipping furtively across the U.S.-Mexican border. Instead, it's plump red cherries and crisp apples rotting on the ground because there aren't enough workers to pick them — a scenario that could become reality over the next couple of months.Across the state's orchard belt, cherry trees already sag under the weight of bright-red clusters, yet many trailers and wood-frame cottages that should be bustling with migrant families stand empty. McGuire is waiting to hear whether crews...

    Former President George W. Bush has weighed in on the Edward Snowden saga, telling CNN the former National Security Agency contractor threatened the security of U.S. citizens by leaking information about the surveillance program his administration created after the September 11, 2001, terror attacks. "I know he damaged the country," Bush said in an interview from Zambia, where he and his wife, Laura, are on a humanitarian mission. "The Obama administration will deal with it. I think he damaged the security of the country." Like President Barack Obama, Bush deflected criticism of the spy program. "I put the program in...
