    WASHINGTON – Jeb Bush wasn’t invited to niece Barbara Bush’s surprise weekend wedding, it was revealed Wednesday. Former first lady Laura Bush said the former Florida governor and failed presidential candidate didn’t make the cut for the small-scale, and short notice, Oct. 7 nuptials — in which her eldest daughter with former President George W. Bush married actor Craig Coyne. “Well, I think Barbara just kept it a secret, plus so few people were invited,” the former FLOTUS told journalist Cokie Roberts, who interviewed her on stage at an event in Washington, DC. “It was just our family and Craig’s...

    Press Secretary Sarah Sanders fired both barrels at former first lady Laura Bush during Monday’s White House press briefing. Sanders was asked about an op-ed Bush wrote for the far-left Washington Post, where she compared the necessary and moral separation of migrant children from their illegal alien parents to the Japanese American internment camps built by Democrat president and icon Franklin Roosevelt. Sanders held nothing back in pointing out Bush’s hypocrisy. And, frankly, this law was actually signed into effect in 2008 under her husband’s leadership, not under this administration,” she added. “We’re not the one’s responsible for creating this...

    Hillary Clinton said, "Jesus Christ said, 'Suffer the little children unto me' not 'let the little children suffer.'" Three former first ladies — Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush and Michelle Obama — have stepped out their political retirement to condemn the Trump administration's practice of separating parents and children at the border while parents are prosecuted for illegally entering the country. Speaking at a women's group in New York City on Monday, Clinton called family separation "an affront to our values" and said she had warned Trump's immigration policy would lead to this during her 2016 presidential campaign against him. And...
  • Democrats Rope A Big Dope in former First Lady Laura Bush

    Meanwhile, the same lawmakers who allow abortion on demand on the grounds of ‘Womens’ Rights’ call the White house administration “thugs” for separating families—by deceitfully using faux pictures to prove it. The mysterious resurfacing of viral Internet photos of supposedly locked-up children tearfully separated from their parents—from the 2014 Barack Obama era—even after being exposed on their timing—are still out there roping dopes. This time, no less than former 1st Lady Laura Bush is the big Rope-a-Dope victim in spite of it being unprecedented for the former First Lady to criticize the policies of the current president.

    Apparently, all children of the world should be allowed to roam the country freely. Laura Bush wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post of all places against President Trump on Sunday. She was silent during the Obama years. “I live in a border state. I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel,” Bush wrote. “It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” She continued on by comparing the separated children’s “shelter” to World War II Japanese internment camps.

    On Sunday, a day we as a nation set aside to honor fathers and the bonds of family, I was among the millions of Americans who watched images of children who have been torn from their parents. In the six weeks between April 19 and May 31, the Department of Homeland Security has sent nearly 2,000 children to mass detention centers or foster care. More than 100 of these children are younger than 4 years old. The reason for these separations is a zero-tolerance policy for their parents, who are accused of illegally crossing our borders. I live in a...

    by Gina Cassini | TRNOn Thursday morning's "Ellen," Michelle Obama gave her very first live interview since she left the White House a year ago. And in just the first few minutes on air, Michelle couldn't help but tell a BIG lie about Melania Trump, and "The Gift." If you recall, on the day of Donald J. Trump's inuguaration, Melania Trump graciously presented a present to Mr. Obama -- from Tiffany's in New York City. It was a lovely gesture. But you wouldn't have known it from Michelle -- who didn't seem pleased at all. In fact she acted like she...

    President George W. Bush and his wife Laura Bush will attend President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration this month. In a statement Tuesday, the former president’s office said the Bushes are “pleased to be able to witness the peaceful transfer of power — a hallmark of American democracy — and swearing-in of President Trump and Vice President Pence.” The decision makes Bush the second living president to attend Trump's inauguration ceremonies. President Jimmy Carter announced his decision to attend last year. President George H.W. Bush, 92, is not expected to attend. His spokesman cited his advanced age in a statement to Politico...

    When Donald Trump destroyed and derided Bush Family heir-apparent, Jeb “Low Energy” Bush, in the GOP primaries in 2016, eyes turned toward the dynastic Republican family in Texas. Would the Bushes cross party lines to back Hillary Clinton or stick with the Republican standard-bearer? In September, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend revealed that George H. W. Bush said he would vote for Clinton, which the former president’s spokesperson later confirmed. His son, President George W. Bush, noticeably refused to endorse Trump, but his nephew George P. Bush, the Texas Land Commissioner, last week let it slip that his uncle may vote for...

Last week, the former first lady was speaking at the Women In The World summit in New York when she made a statement that caused some to jump to the conclusion that Mrs. Bush is “ready for her.” “I want our next president — whoever he or she might be — to be somebody who is interested in women in Afghanistan and who will...

    Former First Lady Laura Bush won't say whether she would vote for Donald Trump if he's the Republican nominee. "I'm not going to answer," Bush said in an interview with USA Today. "Don't ask that." Bush campaigned alongside her husband George W. Bush on behalf of her brother-in-law, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush earlier this year. The Bush couple reportedly is not planning to endorse again in the Republican primary this year. "We don't have any religious test in the United States. And that's what we need to remember. We need to remember what our own values are," she said.

    Laura Bush is hitting the fundraising circuit to help reinvigorate her brother-in-law’s presidential campaign. The former first lady is scheduled to host a pair of fundraisers to benefit former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush next month in the Sunshine State, Bloomberg reported. On Oct. 6, Laura Bush will host a group of donors in suburban Orlando. The next day, she’ll jointly host a second event in Palm Beach with Columba Bush, Jeb's wife. The former two-term Republican governor has tried not to tie himself too closely to his brother former President George W. Bush’s administration. But in recent days, Bush has...
  • New Photos Show Bush Administration Reaction to 9/11 Attacks

    In never-before-released photographs taken on Sept. 11, 2001, the shock, horror and gravity of the terrorist attacks can be read on the faces of President George Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, their wives Laura and Lynne, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, CIA Director George Tenet and other senior Bush and Cheney staffers. The photos were released in response to a Freedom of Information Act request filed by Colette Neirouz Hanna, coordinating producer for the Kirk Documentary Group, which covered the Bush administration in many films for FRONTLINE, including Bush’s War, Cheney’s Law and The Dark Side. The photographs, which were...
