Bush and Clinton lecture Trump: Ex-presidents hit out at Donald with jabs about ´humility´ and ´arrogance´ before gushing about their friendship that´s like having a ´brother from a different mother´ Reuters & Daily Mail, by Staff
George W Bush and Bill Clinton both took apparent jabs at Donald Trump at a forum on Thursday night as they named the one characteristic a president needed above all others. The two former presidents were speaking at a graduation ceremony for the Presidential Leadership Scholars program at the George W Bush Presidential Center in Dallas. Bush replied ‘humility’ in answer to the question about presidential qualities, and added – ‘I think it´s really important to know what you don´t know and listen to people who do know what you don´t know.’ Clinton said anyone holding the highest office in
Lightweights with huge egos! Are we better of today?Clinton gave us 911 anddon´t forget it! Ben Ladin rose up during the Clinton years, and we have paid ever since! Pax on both their houses! And don´t forget who marched us into Vietnam, Kennedy with his pants around his ankles!
The further Bush passes into history, the more my estimation of his presidency falls. Hanging out with that PIG Clinton surely soils Bush. I cannot tell you how much my tolerance for Bushes has declines. $200 million campaign Jeb was a total bungler on the national stage. Now, GWB snuggling up to Clinton, really makes me sick. Please make it stop.
The Bush family helped rehabilitate Bill Clinton after he left office in disgrace. They´re coziness with Bill Clinton was one major reason why I would never have voted for Heb and was relieved when he tanked during the primaries.
Bush is turning out to be just like McCain - quick to criticize Republicans but silent when it comes to Democrats and their abuses. Where was he during the Obama years?
Clinton is a pig and a rapist who sold our country´s secrets out to the highest bidder, and Bush allowed himself to be a kick dog for the dems and MSM. Bush further kept his mouth shut as Obama blamed him for every conceivable thing, whether it was his fault or not.
Sorry, I´ll take Trump over either one of their sorry butts. At least he fights for himself and America!
The Bush family is far from clean. If you are not familiar with Neil Bush´s involvement with the Silverado Federal scam do some Binging. When Neil Bush was asked of the dozens of high dollar loans he approved, how many defaulted? His answer, "All of them!" When it comes to money the Bushs are all in. That is why they are so up tight with the "deplorable" Clinton gang. A billion dollars can buy friendship. If/when we find the truth about 99% of our "public servants" their will be regrets.
George is exhibiting signs of the Stockholm syndrome. My guess is that entire Bush clan voted for Hillary. So who cares what George says anymore? George go back to your painting. We all know Bill will never say anything good about a Republican in office. I guess Juanita´s rape is just not believed by the Bushes. I´m just glad I don´t have a "brother" that has been accused of rape and multiple assaults on women.
Oh the tale of two ex-president. I was in the Navy for both of their terms and it was like night and day. One didn´t give a rip about us when it came to pay, benefits or equipment. Typical democrat cared more about the gimme dats than what it meant to be the Commander In Chief. The other guy had our respect and despite him taking it on the chin from democrats like his "brother from different mother" I personally was glad that he was my Commander In Chief. His recent behavior with him hanging out with the Clintons and the Obamas while taking jabs at PDJT makes me wonder if he´s taking Jeb´s shellacking a little bit personal. In either case my respect of him and the whole family is just about gone. I also have to ask where were the jabs at Obama when he blamed you for everything under the sun Bush? These two deserve each other.
Sorry, Mr. Bush, you can´t be Bubba´s bro unless you are a convicted felon like his "other" bro. And your Mama must be involved in two homicides like Bubba´s Mama. And you must have another felony conviction just like Bubba!!!
The Bush Family have been dirty beginning w/Prescott Bush. I detest each and every one of them including the women.. most especially Barbara. They´re grooming George P. for the Oval Office beginning w/his current position as Texas Land Commissioner and his high level involvement w/LaRaza.
"brother rom a different mother" (doesn´t have the same ring to it that the first one does, that we usually hear)
I have wondered if Barbara Bush would not be bothered about "another mother" - as long as it all leads to another Bush in the White House . . .
are they wanting us to contemplate the possibility that
George Herbert Walker Bush
had an affair with
Virginia Dell Blythe Clinton Dwire Kelley (née Cassidy)?
There was some kind of rumor back in the late 1980´s or 1990´s about President Bush having some kind of affair with someone but I would never believe it, always had such an admiration of him . . . now they joke around about him having an affair with Bill Clinton´s mom!
@#22 and #34 During the campaign last year I listened to one of John B. Wells´ Caravan To Midnight programs and it was regarding Jeb Bush and how very crooked he is/was, carrying out ´jobs´ for his father and family. I would vote for Jeb for dog catcher.
House Speaker Paul Ryan, at a private dinner earlier this year, said he thought only “one member” wanted to build a wall across the entire U.S.-Mexico border, Breitbart News has learned from multiple sources with direct knowledge of the comments, including former Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO). The dinner, sources said, took place on the eve of the House’s passage of two relatively minor immigration bills at the end of June: Kate’s Law and sanctuary city reforms. The far wider reaching Davis-Oliver Act was tabled at the same time. “Ryan told a group of Republicans he met with … that only one
Jenna the hijabi Barbie makes her debut - but she isn´t the first. The newest Barbie doll made her appearance this week in a look that would be unrecognizable to the original. Jenna, created by a French Muslim mother, is a hijabi Barbie. In tradition with Muslim customs, Jenna wears an abaya, a modest dress that covers her collarbone and that stretches to her wrists and ankles. She comes with a matching scarf meant to be wrapped around her hair as a hijab. In addition to looking the part of a Muslim, Jenna will play it as well: she has
President Trump is ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, Fox News has learned from a senior White House official. The initiative, enforced under President Obama, does not provide legal status, but it would allow certain illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as minors protection from immediate deportation. Fox explains which individuals qualify for DACA status. Individuals are able to request DACA status if they were under the age of 31 on June 15, 2012, came to the U.S. before turning 16 and have continuously lived in the country since June 15, 2007. Individuals must also have
HYANNIS PORT, Mass. — They’re America’s white-trash blue bloods. The Kennedy clan has been famous over the years for limitless political ambition, immense wealth, excruciating tragedy — and seemingly constant scandal. Their storied family tale began with an immigrant Irish family-done-very good and rose all the way to a US presidency, only to go from Camelot to trailer park. So when father-daughter duo Max and Caroline “Summer’’ Kennedy were busted by cops during a raucous house party this month, the duo’s alleged low-life shenanigans were hardly a surprise. It was all part of c’est la Kennedy, where bad behavior gets
The cost of premiums for plans sold on the state’s health exchange will soar for 2018, adding to questions about the stability and affordability of the health insurance program known as Obamacare. State regulators announced Tuesday that they have approved average rate increases of just over 23 percent to nearly 50 percent, depending on the plan and carrier, increases that surely will burden consumers who get no government subsidies but also potentially still leave insurers in the red. “Rates for individual plans have gone up well over 100 percent in 4 years,” said Chet Burrell, president and CEO of the
NEW YORK — One week after Charlottesville, “the Resistance” is planning its next move. Members of a group calling itself “Refuse Fascism” met in five cities around the country on Saturday with the intent to plan and organize nationwide demonstrations later this year. Their goal, according to Eva Sahana, a 22 year-old organizer, is simply to “drive out the Trump and Pence fascist regime.” The planning is still in its early stages, but the organizers have an idea in mind. On Saturday, November 4—approximately a year after President Donald Trump’s election—members of the Resistance will descend on America’s major cities.
Protesters are planning a march starting from Charlottesville, Virginia to Washington, D.C. to fight white supremacy and demand that President Trump be removed from office. "The March to Confront White Supremacy" will spend ten days starting on Monday, August 28 travelling to the nation´s capitol and then occupy it with non-violent demonstrations. "For years, white supremacist violence, rhetoric, and policies have escalated and intensified – exploding during Donald Trump’s run for president and reaching a boiling point in Charlottesville," the website for the event reads.
Kid Rock’s flirtation with a Senate bid has Republicans thinking he could be the party´s best shot to win next year´s race against Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.). The rock star — real name Robert Ritchie — would likely dominate the primary field if he entered the race and comes within striking distance of the Democratic incumbent in recent polling. While most Republicans still believe a bid is unlikely, they are enticed by the prospect of a candidate with deep pockets and universal name identification. “People know him — he’s an extremely strong brand in Michigan. He’s fought for Detroit, he’s
Unlike Rhett Butler, many people do give a damn. And because they do have strong feelings about a film that depicts the slave state of the “Old South” as “a pretty world” where “Gallantry took its last bow,” the 1939 Hollywood epic “Gone With the Wind” will not screen during next year’s “Summer Movie Series” at the Orpheum Theatre in Downtown Memphis, theater officials announced Friday. “As an organization whose stated mission is to ‘entertain, educate and enlighten the communities it serves,’ the Orpheum cannot show a film that is insensitive to a large segment of its local population,” Brett
House Speaker Paul Ryan is breaking with President Trump over the latter´s decision to pardon former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio on Friday. "The speaker does not agree with the decision," said spokesman Doug Andres. "Law-enforcement officials have a special responsibility to respect the rights of everyone in the United States. We should not allow anyone to believe that responsibility is diminished by this pardon." Ryan becomes the highest-ranking GOP lawmaker to break with Trump over the decision to pardon Arpaio, who was convicted of contempt of court for refusing to stop detaining Latinos on suspicion of being illegal immigrants.
ST. LOUIS – Thursday morning, a Missouri State Senator posted a comment on Facebook stating she hoped President Donald Trump will be assassinated. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, D-University City, posted the comment, “No. I Will. I hope Trump is assassinated!” in response to a comment from another person who posted about his cousin being on the President’s secret service detail and his fear that he will probably receive a visit from the secret service. A screenshot of the comment was posted to Twitter by KMOX’s Mark Reardon. "Someone wrote a statement on my Facebook and I responded with something that shouldn´t have
President Donald Trump laid out a path for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to get back in his good graces: replace Obamacare, overhaul the U.S. tax code and find a way to pay for big infrastructure improvements. Yet clearing Trump’s agenda anytime soon is close to impossible in the narrowly controlled Republican Senate that already has a packed agenda of must-pass legislation. Trump’s direction for McConnell came after he assailed the Senate Republican leader for two days on Twitter over the Senate’s failure to replace the Affordable Care Act. When asked by a reporter whether McConnell should step down, Trump
Poor Dana Milbank. For all of his life he has been the picture of perfect health. And then Donald Trump was elected President and completely ruined it to the point where he is now dying. Milbank discusses his health crises in his September 15 Washington Post column, President Trump is killing me. Really. President Trump is killing me. No, really. He’s killing me. It wasn´t one of his campaign promises but we´ll take it. I went for my annual physical last month, and, for the first time in my 49 years, I had to report that I’ve not been feeling
Georgia Tech police shot dead a barefoot student carrying a knife late on Saturday night. The student, 21-year-old Scout Schultz, who identified as gender non-binary, was seen walking toward police - who issued several warnings to drop what officers believed was a knife. The tense encounter was caught on camera - in which the student can be seen walking closer and closer to the police officers and shouting ´shoot me.´ (Snip) At Georgia Tech, Schultz was president of the school´s Pride Alliance, which is a student organization for LGBTQ students and allies. Schultz preferred ´they´ and ´them´ gender pronouns and identified
New emails unearthed by Judicial Watch confirm that the Clinton Foundation was in fact a pay-to-play influence peddling operation far more worthy of a special prosecutor than imaginary Russians colluding under Trump Administration beds. It is time for President Trump to keep the promise he made in the presidential debate to indict Hillary Clinton for her crimes: About 20 minutes into the debate, Donald Trump delivered a menacing threat to Hillary Clinton. “If I win,”
While promoting her newly released memoir, Hillary Clinton has placed blame on several factors for her loss to Donald Trump last November — from her own mistakes, to Russian interference in the U.S. election, and the late intervention by then-FBI director James Comey. But Clinton has also spoken candidly about how deep-rooted sexism played a hand in her defeat, and about the double standards she faced as the first woman nominated by a major party for president in America’s 240-year history. In an interview with the New York Times published Saturday, Clinton spoke further about how misogyny is used as
ST. LOUIS -- Protests turned violent for second night near St. Louis following the acquittal of a white former police officer in the fatal shooting of a black man, as a small group of demonstrators refused to disperse, breaking windows at dozens of businesses and throwing objects at police, who moved in with hundreds of officers in riot gear to make arrests. The confrontation took place late Saturday night in the Delmar Loop area of University City, a suburb about 10 miles (16 kilometers) west of St. Louis near Washington University. The area is known for concert venues, restaurants, shops and
The 2017 Emmys Awards ceremony wasted no time getting political during Sunday’s opening segment, as host Stephen Colbert and friends made political jokes within the very first minute — and Colbert quickly accused President Trump of treason. Before his opening song, host Stephen Colbert chatted with Anthony Anderson and Allison Janney, and she complained about the current state of the world. The “Mom” actress mentioned global warming and fighting leaders, and joked that HBO was bringing back “the Confederacy,” a reference to the flap over HBO’s planned new drama series “Confederate.” Moments later, Colbert sang about the virtues of television,
A woman police believe was pregnant was among five people killed and 13 wounded in Chicago shootings Friday into Saturday morning. The woman was one of four victims slain in a rifle attack in the Brighton Park neighborhood Friday night, police said. The quadruple homicide happened about 8:40 p.m. in the 4700 block of South Fairfield Avenue, police said. Three men and a woman were inside a vehicle when someone inside a white SUV opened fire on them with a rifle, police said. Responding police officers found their bodies inside the vehicle and they were pronounced dead on the scene. The
People who claim to be shocked that Donald Trump is prepared to make an amnesty deal for the"Dreamers" -- most of whom are Mexicans who entered the USA at around the age of six -- are being more than a tad disingenuous. The president has been hinting as much for over a year to anyone paying attention. In fact, it´s hard to conceive how he could have done otherwise, considering the (excuse the cliché) "optics" of shipping 800,000 young people back to a homeland they may never have seen. The question is what your definition of amnesty is. It´s a
The silent coup has apparently succeeded. President Trump has been convinced to abandon his revolutionary program of putting “America First,” and has decided to play footsy with globalists like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.There have been signs since before Trump took office that he was not dedicated to accomplishing the goals he promised—whether that was building the wall, repealing Obamacare, cutting off funding for Planned Parenthood, lowering taxes, leaving NAFTA, or many more.[SNIP]The final nail in Trump’s and America’s coffin may be his decision to become the stepfather to President Obama’s illegal executive order establishing Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals.
Yes, you read the headline correctly. In the latest example of identity politics taken to its absurd end, three Australian college professors believe that "Playful urination practices – from seeing how high you can pee to games such as Peeball (where men compete using their urine to destroy a ball placed in a urinal) – may give boys an advantage over girls when it comes to physics." The three professors didn´t publish their thoughts on a satirical website like The Onion. Instead, they published on Tes, a website that provides "Educational materials, jobs, news, and courses from the world´s best community
Almost no commentator, no reviewer, has mentioned the most newsworthy fact about Hillary Clinton´s latest memoir—which is the near total lack of anything actually newsworthy in the book. With What Happened, Clinton would at last "let down her hair," Simon & Schuster´s publicists loudly proclaimed before the book´s publication. And that was the line dutifully repeated by reporter after reporter, as though it were a fact. As though, coming from Clinton´s people, it didn´t need to be checked or reported with even the slight distancing of "Hillary Clinton says she´s let down her hair in her new book." But then,
Mike Huckabee warned that many Republicans in Congress, far from trying to further President Trump´s agenda are actually afraid he will succeed and "drain the swamp." "I´m really more and more convinced that there are a lot of the Republicans in Washington who aren´t afraid that Donald Trump will fail. They´re afraid he will succeed and that he really will drain the swamp," the former 2016 presidential candidate told "Fox & Friends" on Saturday. "The Republicans are the ones who are stonewalling everything he´s trying to get done in Congress right now," the former Arkansas governor pointed out. Huckabee pointed
