Jeb Bush: Donald Trump ‘Couldn’t
Have Been Nicer’ After Bush Sr. Died

Breitbart Politics, by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 12/5/2018 10:03:44 AM

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush praised President Donald Trump on Tuesday for his gracious response to the Bush family after the death of George H.W. Bush. Jeb Bush said that Trump called him after his father died and “couldn’t have been nicer.” Trump’s former rival for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 spoke about his father’s death and President Trump during a Wall Street Journal event in Washington, DC. (Snip)“What people want to talk about is, well, why isn’t the president giving the eulogy?’” he said. “It’s because we have a unique circumstance here: my brother was president.”

What comes as a surprise to his former adversary is old and familiar knowledge to President Trump’s supporters. He is a king, generous-spirited gentleman. Blunt? Yes, when circumstances make it necessary. Warmhearted. Yes. Authentically so.

I believe Trump is a good guy basically. He is definitely outspoken, sometimes awkwardly, exasperatingly and over-the-top. He is his own man, used to fighting for his goals. He´s also open-minded and appears to let bygones be bygones. You have to not overreact to everything he says, like his enemies do all the time. He has good intentions for America and its people. He gets things done.

Oh I hate to say it, but I think there´s a marked change in their attitude since his wife died. GHWB seems to be a more forgiving person and perhaps has cautioned his family to lead with forgiveness (forgive us our trespasses - as - we forgive others - in other words we ask God to forgive us in the same manner we forgive others, tough one that is sometimes).

Death tends to make us all put aside our petty differences. It reminds us that life is fragile and we are all in this for the short haul.

Donald Trump plays the political game as well as anybody. He can get down in the gutter and throw mud with the best of them.

But he is also gracious and caring. When the campaign is over, his business experience has taught him well that you forget the mud slinging and work with your enemies (as long as they will work with you) for the mutual benefit of everyone.

President Trump may have said nasty things bout the Bush´s during the campaign, as the Bush´s said nasty things about Donald Trump. But this is no longer the campaign. This if life. And I honestly believe that everyone involved is keeping this about honoring a good man at the time of his death!!!!!

It may have been a blessing that John McCain died first. The public pettiness of the McCain family (undoubtedly with John´s consent) at his funeral may have shocked the Bush family. The Bush family has for the most part been a class act (except about the 2016 election) and they´re smart enough to see that the only people damaged by the McCains trashy behavior at John´s funeral were the McCains themselves.

You may be right, #10, the tacky attacks on our President during the McCain spectacle might have made the family think long and hard. After all, Rove and the Bushes are working like little beavers quietly in Texas to launch Georgie P. Bush for higher office. (Yes, here we go again.)

The sudden death of the unutterable nonsense of collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and the Russian government, announced as it was in the hand-off to the Southern New York U.S. Attorney of the shabby fruit of Michael Cohen’s plea bargaining, has divided onlookers into three communities of opinion. The true believers in the collusion canard are left slack-jawed, like the international Left after the announcement of the Nazi-Soviet Pact: an immense fervor of faith is instantly destroyed; it is the stillness of a sudden and immense evaporation.

As House control is about to switch, it serves as a reminder about Democrats: They like government. And governing.

And after spending eight downcast years in the minority, they can´t wait to get started. Just ask Rep. Peter DeFazio.

More than 400 demonstrators, many leaders of churches, mosques, synagogues and indigenous communities, sought a halt to detention and deportation of migrants and for the United States to welcome the caravan that arrived in Tijuana, Mexico in November.

Joining him are a majority in the Senate as well as numerous groups representing law enforcers and prosecutors, including former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik. The problem: A small group of GOP senators are trying to defeat the bill, known as the First Step Act, with the basest of tactics. Instead of permitting a principled debate on the Senate floor, they’re treating the American people to misdirection,

Trump will sit down with House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer at the White House on Tuesday ahead of a Dec. 21 deadline to shut down a range of government agencies. (Snip) Republican lawmakers have repeatedly urged Trump to cut a deal with Democrats, an acknowledgment of their inability to produce spending bills with Republican votes alone.

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting.
