You can’t be a part of my life if you don’t love George Bush, the person. I don’t care where your political affiliation lies or if you think he was the worst president of all time or that he did 9/11. But if you can straight face tell me George W. Bush isn’t one of the most likable characters on the face of the planet, you’re legitimately a terrible person and you’re dead to me.
George W. Bush is an American treasure and the grandfather we all wish we had. We must protect him at all costs.
After Donald Trump’s pretty uncomfortable Inauguration speech, during which he roasted Obama who was sitting just feet from him, Bush never commented publicly about it. He did, however, share his thoughts with a few people sitting within earshot of him as it concluded.
From NY Mag:
Bush’s endearing struggle with his poncho at the event quickly became a meme, prompting many Democrats on social media to admit that they already pined for the relative normalcy of his administration. Following Trump’s short and dire speech, Bush departed the scene and never offered public comment on the ceremony.
But, according to three people who were present, Bush gave a brief assessment of Trump’s inaugural after leaving the dais: “That was some weird shit.” All three heard him say it.
A spokesman for Bush declined to comment.
That really was some weird shit..
