  • MSNBC Host: Jeb Bush Would've Been 'Hero' Had He Punched Donald Trump in the Face

    Newsweek ^ | October 12, 2016 | Maria Perez
    MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace said that she had previously told then-presidential candidate Jeb Bush that “he should have punched” President Donald Trump “in the face” after one of the primary debates in 2016. During an episode of Wallace’s show “Deadline: White House” on MSNBC on Thursday, she was discussing Bush’s feud with Trump. Bush and Trump used to have heated debates in 2015 and 2016 before the former governor of Florida dropped out of the race. Former Republican National Committee Chair Michael Steele was discussing one instance when Bush called out Trump during a Republican debate. "Let me tell you,...

    (Newser) – Michelle Obama and George W. Bush have long had a special relationship, and at John McCain's funeral, a video of the former president handing the former first lady a cough drop as they sat next to one another in the crowd went viral. Obama, appearing on TODAY Thursday, explained. "It was a simple gesture," she said. As Bush got out a cough drop for his wife, Laura, "I looked over and I said, 'Hand me a cough drop,'" and he did. "President Bush and I, we are forever seatmates because of protocol. That's how we sit at all...

    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...

  • Jeb Bush weighs in on Trump’s Puerto Rico tweets: ‘Incredibly disheartening’

    The Hill ^ | 09/13/18 | Megan Keller
    Jeb Bush criticized President Trump's controversial tweets about the death toll in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. "Incredibly disheartening comments from our President," Bush tweeted Thursday. Trump beat the former Florida governor for the Republican nomination for president in 2016. Trump sparked controversy earlier Thursday when he tweeted that the estimated 3,000 death toll was intentionally inflated by Democrats. The 3,000 approximation comes from a George Washington University study that tried to total how many "excess deaths" occurred because of Hurricane Maria and would not have happened in the absence of the cyclone. Those involved with the study have emphasized...

    Noticeably absent from [Bush’s] list is Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a Republican who is facing a surprisingly robust challenge from Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-El Paso. Cruz once worked for the former commander in chief, both on Bush’s presidential campaign and then in his administration. The senator also met his wife, Heidi, while working for Bush’s campaign, leading him to say that he “will always be grateful” to the former president…
  • George W. Bush Raising Money to Maintain Trump Cover-up (Textbook definition of delusion)

    New York Magazine ^ | September 12, 2018 | Jonathan Chait
    George W. Bush, who declined to endorse Donald Trump (or anybody) in 2016, and made muttered elliptical criticisms of the 45th president, has thrown himself into the task of covering up Trump’s many crimes. Bush, reports Politico, is raising money for candidates who are committed to maintaining the cover-ups. To be sure, Bush doesn’t put it that way, and almost certainly doesn’t think of it that way. But it is syllogistically true. The Republican majorities in both chambers of Congress have followed a course of non-oversight, blocking disclosure of Trump’s tax returns, allowing him to to be paid by figures...

    Former PM says he had an easier time dealing with the U.S. than Trudeau's had Former prime minister Brian Mulroney lavished praise on former U.S. president George Bush senior Tuesday, saying he was a "fantastic" guy whose example offered a sharp contrast to that of the current tenant of the White House. "George Bush was fantastic and still is," Mulroney told an audience in Ottawa. "I tell you, if you want to see a contrast between a civilized, modest, thoughtful, generous leadership and what you're seeing today, there you go." Mulroney made the comments during a question and answer session...

    Today marks the 17th anniversary of the devastating September 11th terrorist attacks that left 2,996 people dead and more than 6,000 others injured in the United States. The horrific day began when hijackers crashed American Airlines Flight 11 into floors 93-99 of the World Trade Center’s North Tower at 8.46am. Minutes later at 9.03am, United Airlines Flight 175 was crashed by hijackers into floors 75-85 of WTC’s South Tower. Everyone aboard both planes were instantly killed along with those on the affected floors inside both towers. Within less than an hour of the two attacks on the Twin Towers, a...

    CNBC Politics ^ | June 7, 2018 | Matthew J. Belvedere
    Jeb Bush, who unsuccessfully ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016, told CNBC on Thursday he feels like a "fish out of water" in the current state of divisiveness in America. Asked if he'd ever consider running for president again, the 66-year-old former Florida governor said: "I don't know. I love policy. I love my country. But this political environment right now, I'm not suited for. To be honest with you. I'm a fish out of water. I can't imagine having to attack someone to make yourself look strong." In the "Squawk Box" interview, Bush said he did not...

    Hours before the start of hearings on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, the lawyer for former president George W. Bush turned over 42,000 pages of documents from the nominee’s service in the Bush White House, angering Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, who issued what is certain to be a futile call to delay the proceedings. “Not a single senator will be able to review these records before tomorrow,” Schumer (D-N.Y.) tweeted Monday evening. Taylor Foy, a spokesman for Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa), responded that “our review team will be able to complete its...

    POTUS, Donald J. Trump approved all the Federal Funds, Military Funds, use of aircraft for transportation & Federal Government properties, etc., and the thanks he gets from the McCain "no class" family, ex-POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama and Ex-POTUS, GW Bush is not thanks but unrestrained scorn and hate. These people, Obama, Bush and Meghan McCain are the lowest of the low life, filled with hate, envy, jealousy, little dignity nor, any loyalty. If POTUS, Trump had not approved and ordered the actions he did, the John McCain funeral would have been, not noteworthy at all. Go figure. The goods news...

    POTUS, Trump graciously approved the total use of the military, the military support equipment, for a military, public funeral ceremony including aircraft movements of McCains body, the military band, the honor guards, etc. with zero cost to the McCain family. The various ceremonies in Arizona, Washington & Maryland were filled with pomp and circumstance from A-Z!!! The school children in Phoenix , Arizona were released from classes and required to line up on street curbs to honor the passing the McCain motorcade. The Federal government workers in Washington were also released to pay tribute to the McCain body lying in...

    Thought a lot about John McCain’s funeral and here are my observations. The McCain family loathes President Trump and Meghan McCain’s eulogy incorporated that sentiment. She was emotional in remembering her father so we should all respect her thoughts even if we disagree. George W. Bush also is not a fan of Trump’s but his remarks had no malice. Barack Obama gave the most political address. A brilliant orator, the former President can be disingenuous. His assessment that the American press is “independent” is astonishing. Mr. Obama basically received lap dog coverage and STILL had no use for the scribes....

    They’ve got a sweet spot for bipartisanship – and each other. Former President George W. Bush gallantly delivered a small piece of candy into the hand of former First Lady Michelle Obama during the memorial service for Arizona Sen. John McCain on Saturday. A camera inside Washington, D.C.’s National Cathedral captured the cute exchange, sending many Twitter users into a tizzy. The moment came with the two seated next to each other in the front pew as former Sen. Joe Lieberman talked about the importance of reaching across the political aisle.

    Bush — who defeated McCain in the 2000 Republican presidential primary — said that the Arizona senator “detested the abuse of power and could not abide bigots and swaggering despots.” “He respected the dignity inherent in every life, a dignity that does not stop at borders and cannot be erased by dictators,” Bush continued. “John’s voice will always come as a whisper over our shoulder: ‘We’re better than this, America is better than this’.” Watch above, via CNN.

    The Washington Post ^ | 09-01-2018 | Steve Hendrix
    In Washington, high-profile funerals often fall to vice presidents. “You die, I’ll fly” was how George H.W. Bush summed up the frequent funeral part of his portfolio when he was Ronald Reagan’s No. 2 in the 1980s. (Bush attributed the quip to Secretary of State James A. Baker.) But sometimes, the passing of an august figure requires words from the highest political voice in the country, a sitting or former president. President Trump did not attend Saturday’s memorial service for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) at Washington National Cathedral. Nor has Trump spoken at a funeral since moving into the White...

    John McCain requested that former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush deliver eulogies at his funeral, CBS News has confirmed. McCain, who had been suffering from an aggressive form of brain cancer, died Saturday at the age of 81 at home in Arizona. Both Mr. Obama and Mr. Bush will deliver their remarks during a service at the National Cathedral. Former Vice President Joe Biden will speak at a separate service honoring the senator in Arizona.
