Today the older-than-sand patrician Lurch-like ex-President trashed his own GOP and its Presidential nominee while announcing, through his Kennedy Klan intermediary, Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend, that he will be voting for the Rickety Witch of the South come November.
The crooked ex-Presidential crew coalesces around its collective agenda shamelessly behind the hysterical disavowal of Donald Trump and all things Donald Trump, and party loyalty happens to be collateral damage.
Now we know where their loyalties lie.
Former President George H.W. Bush is bucking his party’s presidential nominee and plans to vote for Hillary Clinton in November, according to a member of another famous political family, the Kennedys.
Bush, 92, had intended to stay silent on the White House race between Clinton and Donald Trump, a sign in and of itself of his distaste for the GOP nominee. But his preference for the wife of his own successor, President Bill Clinton, nonetheless became known to a wider audience thanks to Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend, the former Maryland lieutenant governor and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy.
On Monday, Townsend posted a picture on her Facebook page shaking hands next to the former president and this caption: “The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!!”
In a telephone interview, Townsend said she met with the former president in Maine earlier today, where she said he made his preference known that he was voting for a Democrat. “That’s what he said,” she told POLITICO.
It’s OK, Barack, don’t fret. There’s room for three and you’re next in line. Most important, remember that the Bush/Clinton’s are Equal Opportunity Employers.
