Twitter Reminds Trump That George H. W. Bush Hated His Guts


President Donald Trump attempted to pay tribute to former President George H. W. Bush, who passed away on Friday, in a statement that he clearly did not write himself, only to be reminded by Twitter that he is nothing like the elder Bush and that Bush hated his guts.

The 94-year-old Bush died on Friday, just seven months after his wife, former First Lady Barbara Bush passed away.

Tributes have poured in ever since as Bush is remembered for his military service and heroism during World War II, his common decency, and his leadership.

In fact, the Bush family despises Trump so much they barred him from Barbara Bush’s funeral.

“I don’t like him,” the former CIA Director and 41st President once said. “I don’t know much about him, but I know he’s a blowhard. And I’m not too excited about him being a leader.”

Bush was unexcited about Trump, in fact, that he voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Twitter users certainly did not waste time reminded Trump that he is nothing like Bush and that Bush didn’t like him:

Seeing as how Trump is merely pretending to be a decent human being, Americans would be better off reading a tribute to George H. W. Bush by a real president who actually wrote it himself:
