Flashback----> George W. Bush on President Obama: 'He Deserves My Silence'


This just absolutely frosts me. George W. Bush, who never had one word of criticism during the disastrous 8 years of Barack Obama, made a speech yesterday in New York attacking Trump on immigration and strong borders. "Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication." He went after Trump and his policies without mentioning him by name. Apparently, Trump doesn't get the same respect he gave Obama for 8 solid years.

Remember, when Trump became the nominee last year, W and his dad George H.W. Bush put out a joint statement saying they WOULD NOT be endorsing in the 2016 election. Then on election day, reporters caught up with W and asked who he voted for, he replied, 'secret ballot.' It was later reported that W did not vote for Trump 

When George W. Bush attended the inauguration of Donald Trump in January, there were reports that he said of Trump's inauguration speech, 'that was some weird shit'

Here's the Bush Flashback

NBC News 3/17/2009
CALGARY, Alberta — Former President George W. Bush said on Tuesday that he won't criticize Barack Obama because the new U.S. president "deserves my silence," and said he plans to write a book about the 12 toughest decisions he made in office.

Bush declined to critique the Obama administration in his first speech since leaving office in January. Former Vice President Dick Cheney has said that Obama's decisions threatened America's safety.

"I'm not going to spend my time criticizing him. There are plenty of critics in the arena," Bush said. "He deserves my silence." 
Bush said he wants Obama to succeed and said it's important that he has that support.  Talk-show host Rush Limbaugh has said he hoped Obama would fail. "I love my country a lot more than I love politics," Bush said. "I think it is essential that he be helped in office."
