Over the weekend, President George W. Bush’s wife Laura Bush, the former First Lady, dropped a massive hint about who she wants to see in the White House.
Watch (below) as Laura clearly announces she would rather see Hillary Clinton as President than conservative businessman Donald J. Trump. Why? Because Laura wants the new president’s top priority to be women in Afghanistan and continuing America’s policies in the region, even though they have already failed:
As Laura Bush explained at the World in the World summit in New York while appearing on stage with her twin daughters Jenna and Barbara:
“I want our next president – whoever he or she might be – to be somebody who is interested in women in Afghanistan and who will continue U.S. policies … that we continue to do what we’re committed to do as a country.”
“That’s who I want – or the kind of people that will do that and will pay attention to our history, and know what’s what’s happened before and know specifically how we can continue to do the good things that we do around the world.”
The summit was focused on women’s rights during war and in Islamic nations, but it was overshadowed by the upcomming New York primary, where Trump has been wrongly accused of misogyny.
While not mentioning Hillary’s name, it’s clear that Laura Bush is backing Hillary. In fact, Hillary Clinton even provided a recent front-cover endorsement for Laura Bush’s new book, “We are Afghan Women: Voices of Hope.” Hillary’s endorsement reads, “For over a decade, Laura Bush has been an ally and advocate for the women of Afghanistan and, in particular, has worked to ensure that the voices of Afghan women are heard.”
Clearly, Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton share a unique bond, being two former First Ladies of a similar age. Clearly, this is an “establishment thing” with elitists looking down on the type of overwhelming grassroots support Trump has in the Republican primary, leading up to the convention in Cleveland.
However, Laura Bush has always been a classy First Lady. So why is she doing this to Donald Trump at such a critical time? How sad.
