A spokeswoman for Donald Trump slammed George H.W. Bush on Tuesday, following a report that the former president will vote for Hillary Clinton over the controversial GOP nominee.
"If it is true that some of the Bushes are going to be supporting Hillary Clinton, then I think it really offers vindication for a lot of the tea party goers who felt like Republicans were starting to govern as Democrats," Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson said on Fox News's "The Kelly File."
"The establishment is going to stick with the establishment," she continued.
Pierson remarked on a situation where "you have Republicans in a record number turn out for Donald Trump and you have former leaders of the party just essentially slap them in the face."
"Everyone is going to have to choose who best suits their values, and if Hillary Clinton represents George Bush's values then that's his prerogative," Pierson said.
