President Trump is nothing, if not bombastic, but at times we must wonder , how much is too much?
Certainly, Donald Trump was elected President in part due to his unwavering ability to cut the B.S., and relate to those of us not fully immersed in the political world. During the 2016 campaign, he dragged the mainstream media down to his level of politicking in order to get his message across, his way.
Now, however, being at the desk in the Oval Office has allowed the President to take things up a notch…for better or for worse. His posthumous attacks on Senator John McCain have drawn criticism from all corners of the political spectrum, but that hasn’t been the President’s only deceased target.
President Trump said he understands why former first lady Barbara Bush, who died last April, leveled harsh criticism of him in a newly published biography after he openly mocked her sons during his 2016 presidential campaign.
“I have heard that she was nasty to me, but she should be. Look what I did to her sons,” Trump told the Washington Times in an exclusive Oval Office interview.
Barbara Bush also privately blamed Donald Trump for a decline in her health.
In 2016, Barbara Bush suffered what she called a “heart attack” and blamed the episode on the presidential campaign and Trump’s constant ridicule of Jeb during the election cycle.
Bush was no fan of Trump’s, that’s for sure, but the Commander in Chief’s low-blow may be on an entirely different level.
