Jeb Bush Speaks Out on Donald Trump’s Response to His Father’s Death
Despite the reactions by the deep state left when Donald Trump entered the funeral services of former President George HW Bush, it seems as though at least one family member is having a change of heart when it comes to our POTUS.
Jeb Bush, who infamously attempted to go toe-to-toe with Donald Trump during the 2016 election trail, has spoken up about Trump’s response to the passing of his father.
Jeb Bush said Trump called him after the 41st president passed away and “couldn’t have been nicer,” according to the Wall Street Journal.
Donald Trump invited the Bush family to stay at the Blair House, located across from The White House and invited the family to partake in the holiday spirits going on. Jeb’s granddaughters were spotted adorning the Christmas decorations, and First Lady Melania Trump gave former first lady Laura Bush a tour of her latest holiday decorating scheme.
Jeb Bush said the fact Trump is not giving a eulogy at his father’s funeral is thrown up to him as a sign of discord.
“What people want to talk about is, ‘Well, why isn’t the president giving the eulogy?’ It’s because we have a unique circumstance here: My brother was president,” he said. “I’m sorry,” he added. “First dibs.”
Jeb continued, adding that his mother, former first lady Barbara Bush (who passed away in April) would be looking down upon the funeral service Wednesday “about ready to slap George if he goes beyond 12 minutes.”
Jeb Bush noted that the low-key collaborative style of his father is currently out of favor in American politics but offered hope it could return.
“Politically it’s not winning,” he said. “But that’s not to say we shouldn’t restore it.”
Bush said that across America there are “a whole lot of people focused on solving problems, and they know that with civility and kindness and compassion and generosity of spirit you can do far more than pushing people down and making yourself look better, and all of the things that go on in Washington. I’m much more optimistic because I don’t come here often.”
