As one gets old (or older, as this writer can attest) – you start not to care as much as you use to about what you say and to whom you say it. Your inner filter starts malfunctioning – spits, fizzles – and then sadly, the filter completely disintegrates.
Last week George W. Bush accused Trump of promoting “bigotry and white supremacy”.
Evidently, “W” forgot about the thousands of brown-skinned folks in other countries and fellow citizens of the country he was president of for eight fun-filled years of wars, wars and more wars, who met their demise due to his, and fellow neocon’s demonic plans to turn the Middle East into their personal playground for the enrichment of their buddies in the corporations who supply the toys for war.
Sometimes the tales of geezer’s are completely fictionalized – providing cringes, embarrassing smiles or even rolling of the eyes from loved ones upon hearing of the historical alterations.
But when its Papa Bush and his son, George, Jr., and their richly dimwitted inner voices telling the tales – one one looks for straight jackets, super glue and duct tape to stop bleeding from the ears.
Two weeks after an outraged George W. Bush lashed out at Trump, accusing him of emboldening “bigotry and white supremacy“, on Saturday we learn just how deep the animosity toward Trump runs within the extended Bush household. In a new book to be released this month from historian Mark Updegrove, titled “The Last Republicans“, and previewed on Saturday by the NYT and CNN, former President George H.W. Bush said he considers Trump a “blowhard,” only interested in feeding his own “ego.” Meanwhile, his son, former President George W. Bush, thinks Trump fans public anger and came to office without any understanding of the job.
A “blowhard” eh? Easy call there. But such choice condemnations from a deplorable geezer who still, allegedly, can’t keep his hands to himself, even being confined to a wheelchair tell us that the road to Hell can take a long, arduous and twisted journey.
That citizens of the United States have continued to elect such degenerates over and over again is testament to the vast array of chemicals dumped in the water that supplies an endless amount of stupidity to its citizens, or said citizens have simply thrown their hands up and given up. Probably a combination of both.
Of course, the guy with orange hair didn’t have pleasantries for any of his fellow clowns who have held the office prior to his grand arrival, and Obama and Clinton, the other recent presidential degenerates, haven’t been lavish with their praise for the guy with orange hair either.
Leave it to the one former president who managed to escape the presidency with at least some of his humanity intact, for a bit of coherency…
In an interview with the New York Times last month, Jimmy Carter accused the news media of being “harder on Trump than any other president certainly that I’ve known about.” He said if the United States had receded as a global leader under President Trump, it had already been doing so for many years. Carter even said he’d offered his services to the Trump administration. via washingtonpost.com
