Ex President George H.W. Bush To Vote For Hillary Clinton Says Kennedy Family Member

The controversial Bush family have made it abundantly clear that they do NOT support presidential hopeful Donald Trump or his “political” antics — so much so — that the eldest President stone cold republican Bush is planning on voting for Hillary Clinton in the upcoming election. That’s a MAJOR endorsement for the female Democratic nominee.

According to KTLA —A daughter of Robert Kennedy, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, said in a Facebook post that former Republican President George H.W. Bush told her he’s voting for Hillary Clinton.

Townsend, a Democrat who served as Maryland lieutenant governor for eight years and goes by Hartington online, posted a photo with the former president to Facebook: “The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!!” wrote Kennedy Townsend, a niece of President John F. Kennedy.

Jim McGrath, a spokesman for Bush, did not confirm nor deny the claim.

“The vote President Bush will cast as a private citizen in some 50 days will be just that: a private vote cast in some 50 days,” McGrath told CNN. “He is not commenting on the presidential race in the interim.”

Ever since former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush dropped out of the Republican primaries, the Bushes have remained silent about the 2016 election.

Jeb Bush has repeatedly denounced Trump and said he’s not planning to vote for him in the general election, but has fallen short of saying that he would support the Democratic nominee.

Well ain’t that something?! This might be one of the biggest turn of events this election!

What do you think of George H ‘dub-yuh’ switching political teams?

Ex President George Bush Doesn’t Like Donald Trump

According to Fortune Magazine:

For much of the past eight years, former president George W. Bush has been absent from the political sphere, choosing instead to spend his time on his ranch in Texas. Now, though, the former head of state is making moves to try to help Senators who are in danger of losing this November, especially those who may be hurt by the up-ballot presence of Donald Trump.

Friends of Bush told the New York Times that he is upset with the way Trump has conducted his campaign — which makes sense, considering that Bush’s brother Jeb was Trump’s favorite punching bag, and that one of the major points of Trump’s campaign has been to denigrate the War in Iraq, the controversial centerpiece of the Bush administration. Trump even echoed the left wing theory that Bush and his administration intentionally lied to Congress and the American people to convince them to support the war.

“President Bush believes that it’s critical to keep the Senate in Republican hands,” said Freddy Ford, Mr. Bush’s spokesman, to the Times. “He is actively helping some senators in tight races who are strong leaders and share timeless conservative values.”
