Former President George W. Bush has generally kept a low profile since his exit from office in 2009. But from time to time, he likes to take a jab at President Donald Trump, reports the National Journal’s Tom DeFrank.

Reflecting upon our nation’s 45th president, Bush 43 says that Trump’s fledgling administration “sorta makes me look pretty good, doesn’t it?”

“He’s shaking his head like everyone else wondering why they can’t get their act together,” one White House ally told the National Journal. “He wants the guy to succeed but thinks a lot of his problems are self-inflicted.”

“He wants the guy to succeed…” tells you all you need to know about how horrible Bush actually is. Thanks for reminding us, George. The media is trying to rehabilitate you. We won’t forget how tragically awful you were. Your Presidency mainstreamed criminality for the GOP.

No actually Bush 43 was a disaster. Does he remember how many lives he sacrificed for a LIE?? Trillions spent on the lie that the Intell Comm told of Weapons of Mass Destruction. And he jokes about his time in office #bushlied

To Former President George W Bush- I apologize for ANYTHING I said or thought negative about you or your administration!
Bush, at Trump’s inauguration was overheard by several people at the time calling Trump’s swearing-in speech “some weird shit.”

We’re funneling billions of dollars into wars we can’t win and letting austerity kill our own civilians because of things Bush did. But hey trump tweets, I get it.

The second unwritten law of being a “stable genius” is the mastery of deflection and taking credit for the work of others, at which Trump excels.
Trump’s two biggest accomplishments: Trying to take credit for the economic success created during the Obama administration and making George W. Bush seem competent.

Sigh, at least under Bush, we still had history on the History Channel, which maybe could have helped us avoid this catastrophe in the first place.
