The media lost their minds after Trump said one thing about Barbara Bush

President Trump has a long history of conflict with the Bush family.

He has been critical of all the men in the family, oftentimes embarrassing them on national TV.

And the media lost their minds after one thing Trump said about Barbara Bush.

Trump makes it no secret when he dislikes or disagrees with someone.

He made that abundantly clear during the 2016 Presidential election with Jeb Bush.

Hoping to follow in his brother and father’s footsteps, he was gunning for the Republican nomination to become President.

But when Donald Trump announced his bid, he quickly embarrassed Bush on every debate stage to the point he had to drop out.

In response to this, Jeb’s mother, Barbara Bush was extremely angry at Trump, according to a book released following her death last year.

She made clear her dislike for Trump, who her diaries show her being angry at for decades.

The Washington Times reports:

In the book “The Matriarch: Barbara Bush and the Making of a Dynasty,” USA Today reporter Susan Page quotes the late Barbara Bush calling President Trump “a symbol of greed.”

The book is based on interviews with Mrs. Bush as well as diaries provided to the author.

Her disdain for Mr. Trump went back at least to 1990, according to her diary, when the real estate mogul needled her husband at a charity benefit over giving expensive speeches in Japan.

“Trump now means greed, selfishness and ugly. So sad,” she wrote in her diary at the time.

Her attacks against Trump only got worse, especially during the 2016 election.

But in response, Trump makes it clear he isn’t upset with her, and that he believes she should’ve been mad at him.

“I have heard that she was nasty to me, but she should be. Look what I did to her sons,” he told The Washington Times in an exclusive Oval Office interview.

“Look, she’s the mother of somebody that I competed against. Most people thought [Jeb Bush] was going to win and he was quickly out.”

“I hit him very hard in South Carolina,” Trump said. “Remember? He was supposed to win South Carolina and I won it in a landslide. I hit him so hard.”

In response to this, the media lost their minds claiming Trump was attacking the dead.

But his comments don’t appear to be negative in any way, and seem to be very polite toward Bush.

    I voted for bush #1 but when he said he was not
    A republican before his death..I believed him.
    He was for agenda 21. One of the first people
    To sign it. He was for the radical green deal.
    I guess the you really cannot judge a book by its cover.

    President Trump can’t catch a break! He would have been criticized if he had made nice complementary statements and heaped praise on Barbara Bush! I thought he handled his statement very well. Everybody knows a mother fiercely defends her children! We all realize even his nice compliments are picked to pieces.
    “Forget about it!”

    White House ! That is the true Definition of “GREED to want Three members of the Same GREEDY
    Family in the WHIT HOUSE! ! ! Nough Said ! !

      Not only that they are the real Greedy Family of Corrupt Politicians they were involved in Murders too,People like herself should look in the mirror before they spew some nasty words directed to themselves

  4. Don Poggendorf says:

    I always had respect for the Bush family until this last election when they openly showed that they had umped ship and were helping the Democrats and Hillary win which proved to me that they had decided that if they couldn’t have their family in control, they would sell out to the other side and to hell with the country! Thank GOD they didn’t get their wish and Hillary finally got what she deserved, DEFEAT!

    • Eva says:

      You are correct…I have no respect for the bushs…

      • Brun says:

        And. Puppet “W” to V. P. Cheney, enabling Cheney to mastermind an all-out ripoff of billion$ of American hard-earned taxes to fund a fake war in Iraq. Remember, Cheney, a former Secy of Defense, knew all the ropes. And then, Cheney’s investment in Halibuton paid off very well by being awarded the contract to cap the burnin g oil well fires in /near Kuwait. Cheney left D.C.. with $34 Million. Any questions?

    • Cathy says:

      It seems to me they were thinking more about themselves than what was going to happen to our country and what our needs are. I lost all respect for the Bushes after the way they conducted themselves during the election’. You have to wonder what side they were really on.

  5. Nick Byrne says:

    Remember when W got very silent right before the 08 elections? He and John McCain did everything they could to get Hussein Obama elected, and succeeded. I voted for Bush both times, although regrettably. But, under the same circumstances, I would again; who else was running? I picked a copperhead over a rattlesnake.

  6. Donna says:

    AMEN!!! Let it be so, LORD!

  7. Betty says:

    When is that news about the media losing it’s mind when compared to CRAZY donald & D for DUMB trump who clearly lost his mind Decades Ago. Judging by the border wall obsession of that Oval Office INSANE IDIOT!

    • Laurel says:

      Betty, You can always be counted on to post something truly ignorant

      • The Real M says:

        Laurel, Betty is the paid troll Diane writing under the pen name “Betty”, among other names. I wonder how much “it” is being paid for every reply we respond with, “it” must be doing pretty good writing under all the different names.

        You cannot reason with unreasonable!

    • Bill says:

      We said we needed it very badly so he decided to do what we asked. .. .ever have a Dem politico do what he promised in the campaign. In fact he has tried to do all of the things he promised that we requested and except for a handful or RINOs every thing would have already been done and like his work with the economy , bringing jobs back to our workers bringing the massive amount of $ being held over seas, and trying very hard to get illegal immigration stopped . . .we have to thank the Dems for being unsupportive and screwing the whole deal up and allowing a very large # of illegals in to take up our public assistance, medical care , school $ and to contribute nothing…nada…zilch !

    • n wilson oliver says:

      Betty, you are dysfunctional–you delude yourself and would be Chicken Little in a fable and not recognize your feathered self–

      You think you are contrarian but you simply are foolish and your views are pathetic–but you have the right to be a fool–just try not to abuse it so much

      • The Real M says:

        n wilson oliver, Betty, the paid troll, is receiving good money for all our replies to “it”! Especially since “it” writes under several names and is getting paid for each one of them. All paid trolls are very easy to recognize, they are all insulting to President Trump and all his supporters, as well as being nasty, low IQ and angry.

        You cannot reason with unreasonable!

      Cheryl Hargiss, It is the liberal “entity” Google censoring/deleting conservative comments. “It” didn’t like some words and/or phrases you are using. Please keep trying, we need every conservative voice to be heard.

  9. Michael A. Gilliam says:

    The fact that the “media” would actually try and twist what was actually a compliment to Mrs. Bush praising her for being a good mother and fiercely defending her sons. Anyone who could draw negativity from that statement is either not very bright or simply counting on the fact that the ignorant will only read the Headline.

  10. John Bartlett says:

    Barbara Bush was a First Lady, a Loving Mother and Wife with Strong Opinions. God forbid that a woman be crucified insulted or even arrested for her giving her opinion in the United States of America.

    • Pete says:

      If you bothered to read beyond the headline, you’d see that Trump did NOT knock her in any way, in fact he agreed that she should be angry with him. From what I’ve read, Barbara Bush was a drunk and mean spirited when she drank, but I agree you shouldnt knock the dead, the exception being when the dead arrange to reach out after death, as John McCain and Barbara Bush did in the books, posthumustly., then one should be free to defend themselves.

  11. Ruth says:

    If Bush hadn’t started the war with Iraq. There would be those upset that he hadn’t. It doesn’t matter there is always some one against whatever you do. As for the woman that protested at the Entrance of Bush ranch, she would have been killed in Iraq for such actions. Thank goodness she was here where she was free to publicly protest.

  12. Earl says:

    Barbara Bush called President Trump greedy. The Bish family has more money than God.
    Just lost all respect for her and the Bush family. They are the pot calling the kettle black.
    The Bushs and the McCains are part of the elitist that have messed up this country because of their greed.

    • bella says:

      I have no respect for the Bushes including the Mother,she had the nerve to call people or someone names which are actually AIM at them,they are one of the most Corrupt Politicians in the History of America,Greedy,corrupt,manipulative,murder and treason,although Bush lost to Bill Clinton they are actually the best Buddies they played golf together,if you do some research on the Bush background,they were involved in the Kennedy assasins and murders of innocent people who knows their dealings,they were the Mafia of DC

  13. Joseph A. Settimio says:

    Trump is the best, a real fighter, l hope he has no end. Those against hlm can’t see past thier noses. I pray daily for him & every-body with him to keep up the wonderful job they are doing for our great country. God bless them all, Joe.

  14. buddy finkbeiner says:

    MRS. Bush should have carried her personsonal feeling of her Son’s getting their Butt kicked to the grave
    without BAD MOUTHING TRUMP !
    WE are thrilled that “LOW ENERGY JEB” did not make it to the White House !

  15. virginia says:

    I think the Bush’s believed in One World Order. That turned me against them. Barbara Bush believed in abortion. I do not. Of all of them, Barbara was the least liked by me. As for Pres. Trump. I like outspoken people. One knows where they stand. Since the press is against him this is the only alternative he has, is to speak out. How many other people would have had the strength to endure what he’s been put through?

    • Dee Andrews says:

      Yes, seven or eight kids for the elitist Bushes, they can afford to have a big family. Abortions for every body else. What a bunch of elitists the Bushes are, just like the elitist libtards in congress, the media and Hollywood.

    • Jane Jackson says:

      I agree. Too, many 2-faced people in politics. Trump has earned my trust.

  16. dodgerday says:

    Another typical example of MSM trying their best to belittle Trump when he actually took the “high road” by his expressing understanding of why she responded the way she did. This confirms that MSM will distort whatever Trump does or says in order to place him in a negative light.

  17. Melda Page says:

    both the bushes and the Trumps are ugly families, but some of the women and children seem to have some decency; but never Trump, who lives to be as nasty as possible.

    • Betty says:

      Right On, Melds. Compare Laura Bush White House First Lady To melina trump, the White House’s First Legalized Whore

      • Laurel says:

        Betty, you filthy low life. That’s the nicest way I can address you. What degree do you possess? How many languages are you fluent in? What have you done to improve the world….ever?Pity you were not aborted.

  18. Blue says:

    The bushes are buddy buddy with hillary and bill clinton, to hell with’em!

    • Jackie says:

      They certainly all deserve hell. WWG1WGA Q sent us. We’ve come to take our country back. The great awakening. Down the rabbit hole.

      I thought Bill was attempting to freeload on the integrity of GHW and GHW was naive and being taken in. I WAS WRONG. ! ! ! The real answer is, beneath the skin, BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER”

    She’s dead and gone! Let her sons (attempt) a rebuttal! LOL*

  20. David Muench says:

    Why would Fox News even think of firing Judge Jeanne she tells it like it is in all reality and besides Fox News last weekend had the highest ratings of any other news program out. Like the old saying goes if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. In other words never let go of Judge Jeanne never.

  21. Diana Gilland says:

    The bushes are a criminal cabal starting with sterling bush who was a criminal,! He dabbled in drugs, money laundering, and many criminal activities! Bush sr was a groper bush jr started the war with Iran and many more criminal activities!

    • L C says:

      war with Iraq……..but yes, he started it mostly to finish what he thought George H W should have done.
      The World Trade Center attack was not done by Iraq terrorists or launched from Iraq.
      The whole war made no sense.
