The sitting president does not have any empathy. If he did, he would know that paying respects to President George H.W. Bush and his family is not something anyone should be “looking forward” to. This is a terribly sad time. Donald Trump has been giving it his best shot at following in 41’s footsteps. Unfortunately for 45, a person cannot buy class.
The man currently sitting in the Oval Office sent out this morning tweet:
‘Looking forward to being with the Bush Family to pay my respects to President George H.W. Bush.’
Of course, Trump never considered how the family would feel about having him in the midst of their grief for their beloved father and grandfather. After all that the commander-in-chief has said about the Bush family, certainly they will feel at least a small amount of discomfort and maybe much more.
Trump made fun of President George H.W. Bush’s “points of light,” one of his campaign slogans referring to community volunteer organizations spreading their lights across America. Old 45 hit both former first lady Barbara Bush and former governor Jeb Bush with one tweet when the men were opponents in the 2016 presidential Republican primary. He tweeted:
‘Just watched Jeb’s ad where he desperately needed mommy to help him. Jeb — mom can’t help you with ISIS, the Chinese or with Putin.’
Jeb Bush used humor to respond, something Trump apparently lacks:
‘I’d be careful Donald.’
The sitting president also supported impeaching George W. Bush, according to Politifact:
‘Trump supported impeachment of President Bush.’
