Backlash against George W. Bush’s comments on 9/11 was fast and fierce. While commenting on the 20th anniversary of the event that defined his presidency, Bush compared terrorist killers to the few idiots who protested on Capitol Hill on January 6.
Bush, a former conservative, appears to be more and more the mouthpiece for the liberal establishment. After ending his time in office in unquestionable failure, he has abandoned the millions of Americans who fought for him over his eight years. Today, he consistently sides with the left, propping up their toxic doctrine and agenda.
He even pushes their dishonest propaganda that peaceful Americans are “domestic terrorists.”
Donald Trump wasn’t having any of it. And he let the world know what kind of man Bush is.
Trump said in a statement that it is “so interesting to watch former President Bush, who is responsible for getting us into the quicksand of the Middle East,” adding that Bush could not even win the war he put the United States in.
He added that Bush also “lectures us that terrorists on the ‘right’ are a bigger problem than those from foreign countries that hate America, and that are pouring into our Country right now,” Trump said in his statement.
“Why was he willing to spend trillions of dollars and be responsible for the death of perhaps millions of people,” Trump asked.
“He shouldn’t be lecturing us about anything,” Trump argued. “The World Trade Center came down during his watch. Bush led a failed and uninspiring presidency. He shouldn’t be lecturing anybody!” [Source: Breitbart]
Trump was brutal in his response to Bush’s comments. He criticized W, the president who got us into Afghanistan in the first place—and couldn’t get us out. He seemed to be calling Bush a hypocrite for criticizing Americans, but spending “trillions” on a war to defeat real terrorists.
The 45th president went on to blast Bush for his leadership before and after the 9/11 attacks. He even called Bush’s time in office a “failed and uninspiring presidency.”
Crushing words, to say the least. But are they totally unwarranted? Not if you ask most Americans, especially the people who supported Bush way back when.
Bush endured unprecedented (at the time) slander from the MSM and Hollywood. He was defied by Democrats viciously. But who supported him all those years? Hard-working American conservatives. We had his back every time the corrupt establishment tried to take him down. He survived, only because we believed in him.
And what does he do as thanks today? Slander and betray the very people who stood by him the most.
George W. Bush caved to the liberal establishment and serves their crooked agenda. He lectures honest Americans he once claimed to support. If the woke left wanted him to lie down in the mud, he’d probably do it. Whatever values he shared with conservatives, he gave up for a shred of respect from people who used to mock him, deride him, and slander his family.
Perhaps Trump should have been even harsher with his criticisms?
