George W. Bush Reportedly Sounds Off On Trump: ‘Sorta Makes Me Look Pretty Good’
Former president zings Trump in candid comments.

How bad would a POTUS have to be to make George Dubya Bush, a man I’ve come to think of as a lesser version of Mad magazine’s eponymous Alfred E. Newman
“Because the truth is that, during his amazingly inept administration, there is only one thing at which Bush had been diabolically efficient and that happened to be the systematic destruction of his own country.
It was easy to understand that as a particularly lethal combination of arrogance and stupidity, laziness and greed. Or it could be interpreted as apocalyptic evangelism run amok. Or we might have focused on the corporations that had him in their pockets or the neocons or…there were so many explanations. None of which really satisfied my desire to grasp how Bush managed to sabotage his own country in such a virulent way. Here was a man who willfully ignored all signs of the terrorist attacks about to be launched on American territory. A man who squandered the goodwill of the world by disastrously invading a country that posed no threat to America’s security. Who proved more adept at ravishing foreign lands than rescuing compatriots decimated by a hurricane. Who had bankrupted future generations with his inane tax cut. Who had tried to destroy what was left of his land’s social welfare net. Who looked away when people were tortured in the name of America.
It was hard to believe back then that an incompetence so drastic and so persistent was not deliberate.” – From Chapter 11. Mission Akkomplished: From Comrade Bush to Tovarisch Trump, of the book, Homeland Security Ate My Speech: Messages From the End of the World,
A POTUS, any POTUS, would have to sink to a low so deep as to make the Grand Canyon look like a pot hole.
A POTUS, any POTUS, would have to sink to a low so deep as to make HELL seem like up.
