It doesn’t matter who the person is, generally if they take a swing at President Donald Trump, Trump swings back. Which makes Trump’s dismissal of recently surfaced criticisms all the more irregular.
The new biography of former first lady Barbara Bush put her disdain of Trump on full display. The book shares excerpts from her diary which list Trump as “the real symbol fo greed in the 80s,” with another saying, “Trump now means Greed, selfishness and ugly.”
However, in an interview with The Washington Post Trump shared that he was understanding of the late Bush’s comments.
“I have heard that she was nasty to me, but she should be,” Trump said. “Look what I did to her sons.”
Trump gave his victory over Jeb Bush as one such example that could have left some hard feelings.
“I hit him very hard in South Carolina,” Trump recalled. “Remember? He was supposed to win South Carolina and I won it in a landslide. I hit him so hard.”
Although some may claim that Trump is holding back out of respect for the late Bush. But his attacks against the late John McCain would indicate otherwise. Perhaps Trump just has a soft spot for the Bush matriarch?
