Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the media wing of the Trump White House lashed back at former Presidents George Herbert and George W. Bush.
Both Bushes have recently admitted to voting for Clinton, or abstaining (in Bush W.’s case) from the vote for President in 2016.
In a statement sent to The Hill, the White House said that the Bush family has always represented “special interests” and wasteful neoconservative agendas, such as the push for war against Iraq in 2001.
The President also directed an even more-devastating response in a line sent to CNN:
“If one presidential candidate can disassemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had.”
Fire and brimstone! More from The Hill:
The White House fired back at former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush on Saturday, attacking their legacies after both Bushes expressed their displeasure with President Trump in a new book.
“The American people voted to elect an outsider who is capable of implementing real, positive, and needed change – instead of a lifelong politician beholden to special interests,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement to The Hill.
“If they were interested in continuing decades of costly mistakes, another establishment politician more concerned with putting politics over people would have won.”
In another statement reported by CNN, a White House source slammed the Bush legacy.
“If one presidential candidate can disassemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had,” the White House said, according to CNN.
The younger Bush expressed concern in the new book, “The Last Republicans” by Mark K. Updegrove, that he would be “the last Republican president.”
The book, which will be released Nov. 14, was previewed by The Hill and other media outlets late Friday and Saturday.
Both Bushes confirmed in the book they did not vote for Trump in the last election.
Remember those people who warned that the Bushes and Clintons were trying to form a joint-dynasty in the White House?
Trump may be the only man who could have prevented it…and he did!
