Liberals called George W. Bush “Hitler” for eight years but now that Trump is president, they’re pretending they have respect for Bush. It’s all a lie.
The New York Post reports:
After years of liberal hate, George W. Bush is getting the respect he deserves
With Obama out and Trump in, the mental malady known as Bush Derangement Syndrome has finally begun to recede, and the 43rd president is enjoying an unlikely renaissance. Progressive journalist David Corn approvingly quoted Bush on Inauguration Day. Time magazine, Slate The Atlantic and the op-ed page of The New York Times have all run pieces in which left-wing writers favorably compared the second President Bush’s rhetoric to President Trump’s.
Then, last weekend on “Saturday Night Live,” host Aziz Ansari praised Dubya in his monologue, noting that “George W Bush made a speech after 9/11, and it really helped. Things changed . . . He said Islam is peace.” Bush’s speech was met with overwhelming, bipartisan approval, Ansari noted: “It was about basic human decency and remembering why the country was founded in the first place.” Then the comic caught himself thinking, “What the hell has happened? I’m sitting here wistfully watching old George W. Bush speeches?’ Just sitting there like, ‘What a leader he was! . . . He guided us with his eloquence!’ ”
Maybe Liberals should have shown this kind of respect years ago.
You know, when George W. Bush was president.
