George H.W. and George W. Bush may not be very popular presidents according to most liberals, but since Trump reared his ugly head in the 2016 presidential election, they have firmly spoken out against much of his hateful rhetoric. Now, nearly a week after the deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia in which a woman was run down in the streets by a car driven by a white supremacist lowlife, the Bush men have released a statement.
The nation reeled after the devastating news that young Heather Heyer had succumbed to the injuries she sustained when a muscle car plowed through a crowd of peaceful Anti-Fascist protesters in Virginia Saturday.
The Bushes didn’t mince words when speaking out against President Trump’s ridiculous statements following the massacre that ended the life of this young woman. CNN analyst Jim Sciutto tweeted the following Wednesday morning:

Heather Heyer is being remembered today, and although Trump has already released a phony statement about her bravery, the Bushes statement seems to speak to Americans far more.
Trump himself will certainly see this as a personal attack on him, and that is exactly what should happen.
