Former President George W. Bush Slams Trump Racism

Yesterday, former President George W. Bush gave an interview. He wound up slamming the Chumph

Last night, he gave an interview to People Magazine and really opened up.

‘I don’t like the racism and I don’t like the name-calling’: George W. Bush continues political assault on Trump

On the heels of an interview filled with back-handed comments about President Donald Trump, former President George W. Bush outright slammed the president and his administration for its “racism” and “name-calling.”

In an interview with People magazine, Bush went beyond the subtle jabs at Trump to accuse the new president of alienating people.

“I don’t like the racism and I don’t like the name-calling and I don’t like the people feeling alienated,” Bush began. “Nobody likes that.”

He went on to call the climate in Washington, D.C. “pretty ugly,” emphasizing, “I’m not going back nowhere!” Still, the former president said that he is “optimistic about where we’ll end up” as a country. He explained America has been through difficult periods before and figured its way out.

Bush also said that he is speaking out about Trump now because he didn’t “feel like” doing it before.

“I didn’t want to complicate the job and I’m not going to this time. However, at the Bush Center we are speaking up,” he said. “There’s a lot of ways to speak out, but it’s really through actions defending the values important to Laura and me. … We’re a blessed nation, and we ought to help others.”

The Bush Center is better known as the George W. Bush Presidential Center and serves as the former president’s library. The work will focus on immigration ceremonies, women’s reproductive-health programs in Africa and leadership training for Muslim women they bring from the Middle East to Texas. All issues that are significant contrasts to Trump. Despite Trump’s “Muslim ban,” the Bushes plan to push forward on their program to bring in women from the Middle East. “But we’ll figure out how to bring them over.”

Cain Speaks Out to Deny Charges; 2nd Voice Heard

Days after declaring he was moving on from the rapidly developing controversy, Mr. Cain waded back in with an emphatic plea for decency from his high-profile lawyer followed by a defense of his personal integrity and a condemnation of the news media. He was emphatic in saying that men were victims of sexual harassment, too.

His comments came as the latest woman to go public with the accusations — Karen Kraushaar, one of two who settled sexual harassment claims while they worked at the National Restaurant Association while it was led by Mr. Cain — set in motion plans to appear with other women who have accused Mr. Cain of inappropriate behavior.

Ms. Kraushaar, 55, who now works as a spokeswoman for one of the three inspectors general at the Treasury Department, told The New York Times: “When you are being sexually harassed in the workplace, you are extremely vulnerable. You do whatever you can to quickly get yourself into a job someplace safe, and that is what I thought I had achieved when I left.”
