Former President George W. Bush stayed away from speeches and politics while Barack Obama sat in the Oval Office but today’s speech seemed to target President Trump.
Bush didn’t call out Trump by name, but he criticized the governing class and used the passage “Bigotry seems emboldened.” Forgive me or don’t forgive me but Bush should tread lightly on playing on his globalist feelings toward Trump if that is where he was going. He seems to forget how the black community had a hard time trusting him, which was wrapped up by Kanye West during Katrina when he said: “Bush doesn’t like black people.”
I am not saying Bush is a bigot but hurling those accusations out there because the Democrats and media have been making it their daily job to sabotage Trump, isn’t the right thing to do.
If you listen to the words in the video below, it sounds like Trump was speaking about the political establishment during the presidential primaries. Like I said, hopefully, this is not an attack against President Trump.

“Discontent deepened and sharpened partisan conflicts” in recent years, Bush observed during a speech for the George W. Bush Institute. “Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seem more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication.”
“Ultimately this assault won’t succeed, but foreign aggressions including cyber attacks, disinformation, and financial influence should never be downplayed or tolerated,” he said.
There are signs, Bush said, that the intensity of support for democracy itself has “waned.”
“Especially among the young, who never experienced the galvanizing moral clarity of the Cold War or never focused on the ruin of entire nations by socialist central planning,” he continued.
“Some have called this Democratic de-consolidation. Merely, it seems to be a combination of weariness, frayed tempers and forgetfulness,” he said.
“Our governing class has often been paralyzed in the face of obvious and pressing needs. The American dream of upward mobility seems out of reach for some who feel left behind in a changing economy,” he continued.
What Bush meant to say: "TRUMP emboldens bigotry."

GWB is totally irrelevant because he let the Liberal Media completely destroy all of his credibility.

Is it a coincidence that he comes out after the Clintons are in trouble over Uranium One?

Looks like George Bush did his duty for the globalists.

I am not sure he’s calling out President Trump, but I find it odd he kept his mouth shut when Obama was siding with Thugs who attacked the elderly with the knockout game, ANTIFA who attacked conservative free speech and BlackLivesMatter who went after white cops.
