Donald Trump has no shortage of opinions and he’s willing to hand them out at the drop of a hat.
I’m more than willing to quibble about Trump’s comments about Bush. He does have a point though, Presidents get the credit for stuff they don’t deserve and also get blamed for stuff that they couldn’t have stopped.
It goes with the Office.
Unless you’re Barack Obama. Hat tip: Western Journalism
I did happen to love his opinion of Bernie Sanders though.
Trump also shared his thoughts about the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. He described Bernie Sanders as a “maniac” and then said: “This guy’s giving everything away. He wants Social Security for illegal immigrants, he wants education for illegal immigrants, he wants drivers licenses, he wants everything for people that aren’t even legal in the country.”
That comment can be applied to the whole Democratic field. There’s more:
Asked by Bloomberg Television anchor Stephanie Ruhle how Americans might trust him to keep them safe, the Republican presidential front-runner bristled at the mention of Bush’s role as comforter-in-chief after 9/11, and President Barack Obama’s similar position following the December 2012 school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
‘OK, I think I have a bigger heart than all of them,’ he said. ‘I think I’m much more competent than all of them.’
‘When you talk about George Bush – I mean, say what you want, the World Trade Center came down during his time.’
Ruhle jumped in, saying, ‘Hold on! You can’t blame George Bush for that.’
‘He was president, OK?’ Trump responded. ‘Don’t blame him, or don’t blame him, but he was president. The World Trade Center came down during his reign.’
‘If you look at Sandy Hook, those people are still begging for help. It’s a disaster, and it’s a disaster all over the place.’
‘Government has proven to be a disaster during the Obama administration,’ Trump pivoted. ‘What we need is a leader, we don’t have a leader.’
