George H.W. Bush was at Barbara’s side until the very end

Until her dying breath, President George H.W. Bush held his wife’s Barbara’s hand, a family spokesperson said.

“He held her hand all day today and was at her side when [she] left this good earth,” the former president’s chief of staff Jean Becker said.

The former first couple had been together for 73 years — since meeting as teenagers on the eve of World War II — and the ex-president is now leaning on the support he’s receiving from loved ones, in the wake of Barbara’s death Tuesday at the age of 92.

“Obviously, this is a very challenging time. But it will not surprise all of you who know and love him that he also is being stoic and strong and is being lifted up by his large and supportive family,” Becker said.

George H.W. and Barbara Bush were the longest-married couple in presidential history. They far outdistanced the 54-year union of John and Abigail Adams — who like George and Barbara Bush, had a son serve as president.

George H.W. Bush: “I Don’t Like Donald Trump, I Don’t Know Much About Him, But I Know He’s A Blowhard And I’m Not Too Excited About Him Being A Real Leader Like Barack Obama .”Do You Support?

Previous President George H.W. Bush stated that he isn’t excessively excited for “blowhard” President Trump and he affirmed in another book that he voted in favor of Hillary Clinton.

In the book, called “The Last Republicans,” the 41st president as well uncovered that he voted in favor of Trump’s Democrat competitor Clinton in the 2016 presidental race.

The new book, by writer Mark K. Undegrove, comprises for the most part of meetings glancing back at the Republican Party in the course of recent decades and investigates the association between the senior Bush and his child, previous President George W. Bush.

The more youthful Bush disclosed to Undegrove that he voted in favor of “none of the above.”

The father and child each raise worries that Trump has basically exploded the GOP to the degree that the New York businessperson and first-time government official could be the party’s last president for quite a while.

They as well propose that Trump has destroyed their long-lasting endeavors to keep on building a political party resolved to organized commerce and migration and the continuation of United States as a world pioneer in majority rules system.

The review of the new book comes after a discourse by the more youthful Bush in which he said “bigotry seems emboldened” in the United States and cautioned that Americans need to dismiss “white supremacy.” He doesn’t particularly specify Trump by name.


Senate Republicans Condemn Roy Moore, Silent on George H.W. Bush Allegations

At least eight Republican senators have condemned Alabama Judge Roy Moore’s alleged misconduct with minors, but none of them will yet disavow former President George H.W. Bush after six women accused him of unwanted sexual contact.

The Washington Post released a story last week that alleged Roy Moore engaged in inappropriate conduct with minors. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and several other establishment lawmakers called on Roy Moore to drop out the race after hearing the accusations.

On Monday, McConnell called on Moore to step down. He added, “I believe the women.”

Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Steve Daines (R-MT) rescinded their endorsement of Judge Moore. Sen. Lee once called Moore a “proven, conservative fighter” and a “trusted ally.” Lee said after the Washington Post‘s story broke, “Having read the detailed description of the incidents, as well as the response from Judge Moore and his campaign, I can no longer endorse his candidacy for the U.S. Senate.”

Sen. Daines once said that Moore was a “principled conservative.”

Texas woman Roslyn Corrigan became the sixth woman to claim that she was groped by former President George H.W. Bush. Corrigan claimed that she was 16 when the incident occurred.

Corrigan told Time magazine, “My initial action was absolute horror. I was really, really confused. The first thing I did was look at my mom and, while he was still standing there, I didn’t say anything. What does a teenager say to the ex-president of the United States? Like, ‘Hey dude, you shouldn’t have touched me like that?’”

The following Senate Republican offices did not respond to a request for comment asking whether they plan to condemn George H.W. Bush’s alleged sexual assault:

  • Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell
  • Mike Lee
  • Steve Daines
  • John McCain (R-AZ)
  • Pat Toomey (R-PA)
  • Lisa Murkowksi (R-AK)
  • Jeff Flake (R-AZ)
  • John Cornyn (R-TX)

All of the offices condemned Roy Moore’s alleged actions after the Post released their story.

Alabama Judge Roy Moore denied the Washington Post’s allegations, and on Sunday he revealed that he plans to sue Washington Post for its series of hit pieces against him. Moore said, “This article is a prime example of fake news and an attempt to divert attention from the true issues facing our country like health care, immigration, tax reform, military readiness, and the national debt. We do not intend to let the Democrats, we do not intend to let the establishment Republicans, we do not intend to let anybody prevent us from finishing this race. We expect the people of Alabama to see through this charade, and we will continue our efforts.”
