Oh yeah, the same former presidents, who didn't utter a peep during the disastrous 8 years of the Obama regime are coming out swinging on Trump, so much for - predecessors not criticizing the new President. But Bush 41 goes a step further, he proudly declares that he voted for Hillary while calling Donald Trump a 'blowhard' according to their new book.
Hey Bush 41, had Jeb been the nominee, what do you think the Clinton machine would have done to him? They would have had a 24-hour smear campaign doing everything in their power to destroy him just like they did Donald Trump. There's no doubt about it.
Voting for Hillary Clinton, the most corrupt candidate in the history of American politics is completely inexcusable. I'll never defend either Bush again.
CBS News Reported:
Former presidents George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush are offering their harshest public opinions of President Trump yet -- including the elder Bush's description of the current commander-in-chief as a "blowhard."
Those comments appear in a new book on the father-son duo from historian Mark Updegrove, titled "The Last Republicans." The former presidents have alluded to their thoughts on Mr. Trump's leadership before. Last month, George W. Bush said "bigotry seems emboldened" under Mr. Trump. But in Updegrove's book, set to release Nov. 14, the two men offer their bluntest comments yet. Updegrove spoke with CNN about his book, providing some of the text.
"I don't like him," the elder Bush told the author in May 2016 after it was clear Mr. Trump would secure the GOP nomination. "I don't know much about him, but I know he's a blowhard. And I'm not too excited about him being a leader."
George W. Bush was not much softer in his comments about Mr. Trump: "This guy doesn't know what it means to be president," he says in the book.
Neither former president voted for Mr. Trump, according to the Updegrove. George H.W. Bush voted for Hillary Clinton, while his son didn't vote for anyone in the presidential election and only voted for down-ballot Republicans.
Updergrove told CNN that Mr. Trump is "everything that the Bush family is not."
"He's a blowhard and he said, 'I don't like him, plain and simple,'" Updegrove told CNN. "'And I'm not excited about him being a leader,' was his quote.
