Donald Trump makes it hard to hate him. He is entertaining, and thus far the only candidate on the right or the left to even hint that the Bush Crime Family was, well ... the Bush Crime Family.
In an interview with Bloomberg, the Donald hinted that Raisin Brain could've done more to prevent the 9-11 attacks. Yup. Not even Bernie Sanders has "gone there."
The New York Times has more:
"Mr. Trump was asked how he would demonstrate compassion during a crisis such as a hurricane or attacks on the World Trade Center. Saying that he has more heart and is more competent than the leaders who dealt with those tragedies, Mr. Trump then criticized the former president.- Advertisement -
"'When you talk about George Bush, I mean, say what you want, the World Trade Center came down during his time,' Mr. Trump said.
"Blaming 9/11 on Mr. Bush is taboo for Republicans and has largely been off-limits for Democrats. Pressed on whether he really meant to blame the attacks on Mr. Bush, the billionaire developer did not back down.
"'He was president, O.K.?,' Mr. Trump said. 'The World Trade Center came down during his reign.'
"Mr Trump has been fiercely critical in recent months of Jeb Bush, who is also seeking the Republican presidential nomination, and in the process has levied attacks on his brother, the former president. At a Republican debate last month, Mr. Trump blamed Mr. Bush's presidency for helping to elect President Obama.
"'Your brother's administration gave us Barack Obama, because it was such a disaster, those last three months, that Abraham Lincoln couldn't have been elected,' Mr. Trump said."
You gotta admit, that's kinda beautiful ... the Obama slam notwithstanding.
