(DCWatchDog.com) With each passing day, it seems that former President Donald Trump adds to the list of current and former Republican Party officials and elected-office holders with whom he is angry.
Today, Trump is livid with former President George W. Bush because Bush is going to hold a fundraiser for Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyoming). (It’s worth noting that Liz Cheney’s father, Dick Cheney, was Bush’s Vice President)
As almost everyone on the planet knows, Liz Cheney has been a thorn in the side of Trump. In fact, there may not be any other Republican in the United States who has verbally attacked Donald Trump more than Liz Cheney.
Because of that fact, Trump is backing Cheney’s primary challenger, Harriet Hageman, in the hopes of knocking Cheney out of Congress. Further, as you’ll see below, Trump is even mad at former Vice President Cheney.
Now, because Bush is backing Cheney, Trump has issued the following statement:
“RINO former President George “Dubya” Bush and his flunky Karl Rove are endorsing warmongering and very low polling, Liz Cheney. Bush is the one who got us into the quicksand of the Middle East and, after spending trillions of dollars and killing nearly a million people, the Middle East was left in worse shape after 21 years than it was when he started his stupidity. It ended with Biden’s most embarrassing in history withdrawal from Afghanistan, a total surrender, leaving $85 Billion dollars of equipment and many young Warriors lives behind.
“Bush is the person who did not have the courage to give a pardon to his Vice President’s Chief of Staff, Scooter Libby, even though Cheney begged for him to do so. He wouldn’t, they didn’t talk for years.
“I didn’t know Scooter, but gave him a full pardon—not at their request, but because he deserved it. He suffered greatly. Former Vice President Cheney called to effusively thank me. Now he is on the side of his daughter who is so bad for Wyoming and the United States that she is polling at record lows.” –Donald J. Trump [transcribed by dcwatchdog.com]
