George W. Bush, Missing for Eight Years, Thinks We Need an Investigation of the Fake Russia Story

Monday on NBC’s “Today,” former President George W. Bush was asked to offer his thoughts on a number of issues. George W. is hawking a new book and is interviewing on all the networks. The man who was too gentlemanly to criticize Barack Obama as he spent eight years ruining the country and setting it up for Socialism, is calling for an investigation of the fake Russia story, a story made up by the Clinton team.

Where has George been for eight years? Pundits say he was very gentlemanly to not go tougher on the President given the attacks he and his family suffered at the hands of Trump, however, Bush was attacked by Obama for eight years and he said nothing.

Overall, the former president was careful to avoid all direct attacks on Donald Trump.

The NBC host spent the entire interview asking Bush leading questions to include:

“You took office in 2001 after an extremely contentious election, controversial end to that, the Supreme Court decided it, the nation was incredibly divided. How would you compare the divisions we faced then to what we’re living through right now?”

“But there’s enormous division right now. And although President Trump has said he hopes to unify the country, have you, in the first month, seen him do or say anything that, in your opinion, would be an attempt to heal the wounds of the election?”

Even at the times where you were dealing with the worst criticism, where it must have been very difficult to hear and read some of the things that were being said by the press in this country, did you ever consider the media to be the enemy of the American people?

NBC doesn’t want to be called fake news but here they are slanting the questions.

When asked about Russia, the former president said:

“Well first of all, I think — I think we all need answers,” the former president said. “Whether or not a special prosecutor is the right way to go or not, you are talking to the wrong guy. I have great faith in Richard Burr, for example, he’s the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, really good guy an independent thinker. And you know, if he would recommended a special prosecutor, than I can — I’d be — you know, that I — it’d have more credibility with me. What I’m really — you know, I have never been a lawyer. You know, I’m not sure the right avenue to take. I am sure, though, that that question needs to be answered.”

There is absolutely no evidence Trump is tied to Putin in any way, it’s a tactic from the left – a fishing expedition.

The

Matt Lauer asked Bush what he thought about the travel ban. Bush emphasized the importance to “worship freely.”

“I think it’s very important for all of us to recognize one of our great strengths is for people to be able to worship the way they want to or not worship at all,” Bush said. “The bedrock of our freedom, a bedrock of our freedom, is the right to worship freely. And I — you see, I understood right off the bat, Matt this, that is an ideological conflict. And people who murder the innocent are not religious people. They want to advance an ideology. And we’ve faced those in the past.”

Donald Trump has also called for the need to”worship freely”.

Bush went on to offer a side note that it was hard to fight the war on terror “in retreat,” referring to the United States’ decision to leave the Middle East during President Barack Obama’s term.

He got in some digs about Trump’s relationship with the press, warning Trump to not become addicted to power.

“I considered the media to be indispensable to democracy. That we need an independent media to hold people like me to account. I mean, power can be very addictive. And it can be corrosive. And it’s important for the media to call to account people who abuse their power. Whether it be here or elsewhere. One of the things I spent a lot of time doing, trying to convince a personal like Vladimir Putin, for example, to accept the notion of an independent press.”

Former President Bush supports a welcoming policy of immigration and one that upholds the law. So far, Trump has only ordered law enforcement to follow the law.
