Former President George Bush made headlines this Thursday, when during his public speech he went on to indirectly call out President Donald Trump and his supporters. Bush delivered a strong indictment of Trump’s populist nationalism, condemning trade protectionism and bemoaning how politics had fallen prey to “conspiracy theories” and “outright fabrication.” He also warned of the impact of “bullying and prejudice” in public life.
The former president claimed that nativism, white supremacy as well as bigotry have been on the rise since President Trumps brand of populism had galvanized hate groups for “deepened and sharpened partisan conflicts.”
In yet another signature treacherous move, Arizona Senator John McCain has publicly endorsed Bush’s words.
Important speech by my friend, President George W. Bush today, reminding us of the values that have made America a beacon of hope for all.

This is not the first time that McCain has backstabbed the President by supporting people who work against him, as for two times in a row, he voted against the years-long efforts of the GOP members to repeal and replace Obamacare.
Not surprisingly, conservative supporters of President Donald Trump feel quite outraged with him constantly betraying the Republicans, so they stormed social media websites, ripping the Arizona senator to shreds with criticism:
George Bush learned from John McCain that he better start bashing Republicans if he wants the media to forgive him for his sins.

How your party ever accepted Trump as the nominee is beyond the pale. Thank You for trying to figure a way around this egregious error.

This was the final proof that McCain is no longer a Republican. He actually appeals far more to the Democrats with his most recent decisions and stance regarding Donald Trump.
