Proving that you don’t get smarter as you age, George H W Bush announced recently that he plans to vote for the Wicked Witch of Benghazi.
Wanting to give Bush 41 the benefit of the doubt due to his advancing age I am no less struck by the fact that he hates Donald Trump so much that he would help put a scumbag like Hitlery in the White House.
According to Newsmax, “Former President George H.W. Bush appears to be joining a growing list of Republicans who say they will either abstain from voting for Donald Trump or cast their ballot for Hillary Clinton.
One of Robert Kennedy’s daughters posted on her Facebook page Monday that the nation’s 41st president told her he plans to vote for Clinton in November, but his spokesman wouldn’t confirm or deny her claims.
Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend posted a picture of herself on her personal page shaking hands with Bush, along with a caption: ‘The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!!’ reports Politico.
Bush and his wife, Barbara, have stayed out of the race since their son Jeb, the former Florida governor, dropped his own presidential bid, and neither he nor former President George W. Bush went to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland when Trump received his party’s nomination.
Both George W. and Jeb Bush have stated they will not vote for Trump come November. They have not indicated they will vote for Clinton.
A number of leading Republicans have joined their chorus, with senators including Jeff Flake, Ben Sasse and Susan Collins indicating they won’t vote for Trump. Former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Ohio Gov. John Kasich have also stated they are not planning to vote for Trump.”
