George W. Bush Finally Tells Us What He REALLY Thinks of Trump… You Might Want to Sit Down for THIS

By

Former President George W. Bush this week made his first public political statements in years after being pressed to comment on President Trump.

Bush appeared on the Today Show to talk about his new book, “Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief’s Tribute to America’s Warriors,” but, to no one’s surprise, host Matt Lauer wanted to talk about Trump instead.

Bush was critical of Trump, as most expected he would be, but he was respectfully so. A MAJOR contrast to the kind of spiteful criticism coming from Obama.

But, we all already knew that while Bush was and remains presidential, Obama NEVER demonstrated that particular characteristic.

When asked about Trump’s presidency in general, Bush responded:

“Well, first of all, there’s only been one month in office, you know he’s got four years. Secondly, I think you have to take the man for his words that he wants to unify the country and we’ll see whether he’s able to do so.

“It’s hard to unify the country though with the news media being so split up. When I was president, [the media] mattered a lot more because there was like three of you, and now there’s all kinds of information being bombarded out and people can say things anonymously. It’s just a different world.”

Bush went on to tacitly back the media in its feud with Trump and say that some answers are needed regarding Russia’s involvement in last year’s election. But he did so without directly attacking President Trump or accusing him of any personal wrongdoing.

Just reminds you of the kind of class we had in the White House before Obama.

Here’s to hoping Trump returns the presidency to its former glory.
