Trump Torches ‘RINO’ George W. Bush For Endorsing Liz Cheney

Bush and Karl Rove will be headlining a fundraiser in Texas for Cheney next month

Former President Donald Trump reemerged on Wednesday night to call out former President George W. Bush and his “flunky Karl Rove” for endorsing Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY). This came after it was announced that Bush and Rove will be headlining a fundraiser in Texas for Cheney next month.

“RINO former President George ‘Dubya’ Bush and his flunky Karl Rove are endorsing warmongering and very low polling, Liz Cheney,” Trump said in a statement obtained by The New York Post. “Bush is the one who got us into the quicksand of the Middle East and, after spending trillions of dollars and killing nearly a million people, the Middle East was left in worse shape after 21 years than it was when he started his stupidity.”

“‘It ended with Biden’s most embarrassing in history withdrawal from Afghanistan, a total surrender, leaving $85 billion dollars of equipment and many young warriors’ lives behind,” he continued.

Not stopping there, Trump proceeded to lash out at Bush even more by bringing up a disagreement between the former president and Cheney’s father, former Vice President Dick Cheney.

“Bush is the person who did not have the courage to give a pardon to his Vice President’s Chief Scooter Libby, even though Cheney begged him to do so. He wouldn’t, so they didn’t talk for years,” Trump explained. “I didn’t know Scooter, but gave him a full pardon – not at their request, but because he deserved it. He suffered greatly.”

“Former Vice President Dick Cheney called to effusively thank me,” Trump concluded. “Now he is on the side of his daughter who is so bad for Wyoming and the United States that she is polling at record lows.”

There is no love lost between Trump and Cheney, who is one of the Republicans that voted in favor of impeaching him earlier this year. Bush has also never been a fan of Trump’s, as the former president trounced his brother Jeb Bush in the 2016 presidential primaries.

Bush will be headlining a fundraiser for Cheney next month, with his spokesperson saying that the former president “has historically helped a few key candidates and friends each cycle, so this one shouldn’t come as any surprise,” according to ABC News.

“President Bush is impressed by Liz Cheney’s strength and vision, and he’s proud to support her,” he added.

On the twentieth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks earlier this month, Bush warned of the country’s growing internal division and a “violence that gathers within.”

“There is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home,” Bush said while speaking at the national memorial to the victims of Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. “But in their disdain for pluralism, in their disregard for human life, in their determination to defile national symbols, they are children of the same foul spirit. And it is our continuing duty to confront them.”

Trump fired back by blasting Bush for suggesting 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.”

“He shouldn’t be lecturing us about anything,” Trump said. “The World Trade Center came down during his watch. Bush led a failed and uninspiring presidency. He shouldn’t be lecturing anybody!”

The Republican establishment that Bush and Cheney are firmly part of have been trying to take Trump down from the very beginning. It will certainly be interesting to see if Bush’s endorsement helps Cheney, or ends up being the kiss of death for her along with her anti-Trump ways.
