Former President George W. Bush delivered a hypocritical speech aimed at President Donald Trump’s tenure in office Thursday during an event at his namesake institute in New York City.
Bush had the audacity to hint that Trump is a bigot and white supremacist, without having the guts to actually say President Trump’s name…everyone knew who George W. was talking about.
This comes from a US president that lied to the world, and killed hundreds of thousands (maybe millions) of people over a necon concocted scheme to reshape the Middle East.
The liberal left media, which used to despise Bush, now gushes over George W.’s every word.
George W. Bush, a man who should be in prison for war crimes for knowingly misleading America into an illegal war over nonexistent weapons of mass destruction, has found a very simple way to rehabilitate his reputation…hate on Trump.
Expect Tony Blair, the other Iraqi WMD war criminal, to bash Trump in the very near future.
Here is Jeff Bezos owned Business Insider, writing about the wonderful former US president.
At an event on Thursday in New York hosted by his namesake institute, former President George W. Bush delivered his most pointed remarks during Donald Trump’s presidency.
At an event branded as the “George W. Bush initiative on freedom, free markets, and security,” which also featured speakers such as former first lady Laura Bush, former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, and United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, Bush strongly condemned the current state of American politics.
“In recent decades, public confidence in our institutions has declined, our governing class has often been paralyzed in the face of obvious and pressing needs,” the 43rd president said. “The American dream of upward mobility seems out of reach for some who feel left behind in a changing economy. Discontent deepened and sharpened partisan conflicts. Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication.”
Seeming to point at some factions on the left, Bush said he sees signs “that the intensity of support for democracy has waned, especially for the young, who never experienced the galvanizing moral clarity of the Cold War, or never focused on the ruin of entire nations by socialist central planning.”
“Some would call this democratic de-consolidation,” he said. “Really it seems to be a combination of weariness, frayed tempers, and forgetfulness.”
Bush also blasted some of the emerging elements of the far right, which presented themselves most prominently at the August rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia, that turned violent, with a counterprotester getting killed by a white supremacist.
The former president said “people of every race, religion, and ethnicity can be fully and equally American” and that “bigotry or white supremacy in any form is blasphemy against the American creed.”
He also made mention of Russian influence in the 2016 presidential election, calling on the US to “harden its own defenses.”
“Our country must show resolve and resilience in the face of external attacks on our democracy,” he said. “And that begins with confronting a new era of cyber threats. America has experienced a sustained attempt by a hostile power to feed and exploit our country’s divisions.”
“According to our intelligence services, the Russian government has made a project of turning Americans against each other,” he continued. “This effort is broad, systemic, and stealthy. It’s conducted across a range of social media platforms. Ultimately, this assault won’t succeed. But foreign aggressions including cyber attacks, disinformation, and financial influence should never be downplayed or tolerated.”

Remember when liberals blasted Bush and his war criminal administration for the disaster that was Iraq…but as long as Bush bashes Trump all is forgiven in liberal lala land.
