And if Republicans were distancing themselves from the 2016 presidential race before, now they’re avoiding the election like the plague!
According to reports, neither former president from the Bush family — George H.W. Bush or his son George W. Bush — will endorse a candidate for presidency this election.
And you better believe that’s a snub to Trump!
Bush Jr.’s personal aide Freddy Ford told People:
“President Bush has no plans to participate in or comment on the presidential campaign.”
Aside from helping out his son Jeb Bush in his brief campaign, which ended in February, Bush Sr. is also steering clear of the race to the Oval Office.
Spokesman Jim McGrath said:
“At age 91, President Bush is retired from politics. He came out of retirement to do a few things for Jeb [Bush], but those were the exceptions that proved the rule.”
Though neither former prez endorsed a candidate this time around, Bush Jr. has actively supported candidates in the past five election cycles.
Hmmm├óΓé¼┬ª we wonder what’s different this time around… LOLz!
What do YOU think of the presidential family’s lack of support?
