Skip to comments.Cindy Sheehan: Bush was 'pretty rude' after son's death, 'not shocked' by Trump

Cindy Sheehan says President Trump's allegedly insensitive remarks to the widow of a soldier killed in Niger aren't surprising to her, and that former President George W. Bush had a similarly difficult time with her family after her son Casey's 2004 death in Iraq.
Bush's treatment of grieving military family members, including Sheehan, who camped outside his Texas ranch to protest the Iraq War, is upheld frequently as an example for Trump to follow.
But Sheehan said Bush's attempt to comfort her family and others was rife with awkwardness and upsetting moments, and said she's "not shocked" to read that Trump allegedly said of Army Sgt. La David Johnson to his widow that "he knew what he signed up for."

this old hag is still hanging around?
do these worthless old libs NEVER DIE?
Funny how she was pretty much MIA during the Obama years.
It’s almost as if she’s just a Democrat tool.....
She and McCain were made by Crassman. They’re guaranteed for life.
I seem to remember that she commended Bush on his compassion until she went home and had time to think about it.
They both seem to ooze the same crazy liberal “logic”.
Cindy Sheehan was never concerned about soldiers killed under Obama so it is clear she is a Dem Shill. Crawl back under your rock Cindy!
The funny thing is as a candidate, Trump sounded more like Cindy Sheehan than any other candidate, R or D.
Yet she still hates him.
And this is a good reminder how to the Dems and MSM back in the Bush years, Bush was every last bit as vilified, called a psycho and dunce etc...as they are doing to Trump today.
They pretend now like Trump us worse, Trump is unique and they had some sort of civil discourse and democratic relationship with Bush when it was non-stop calling him an ape, a murderer, a war criminal.
More like.. until she was told what to think about it.
Who pulled her chain?
They dredged the swamp and found her.
“Cindy Sheehan was never concerned about soldiers killed under Obama so it is clear she is a Dem Shill. Crawl back under your rock Cindy!”
Good point. She is a shill, used by the media.
But, I think that she did still rag on Obama a bit but the media just completely ignored her.
Every marine knows that when they go into battle they can die..but they do it anyway because they LOVE this country and are heroes..so what exactly is wrong with what President Trump said..they did sign up for this, many do, some dont, but the ones that do are heroes to this country so what again is the problem?
Wish I could disagree.
Now how did I know that we would be hearing from sweet Cindy? Hmmm?
