According to Robert Mueller, President Donald Trump is not guilty of the crimes Democrats have been accusing him of for the last two-and-a-half years. He did not collude with the Russians in a grand conspiracy to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton. He did not obstruct justice in criticizing the Deep State’s zeal to bring him down for that same phony crime.
But while Trump may be innocent of those damning charges, let us not make the mistake of thinking he is innocent altogether. After all, this is the monster whose travel ban stranded billions (if not trillions) of kindly Muslim grandmothers on their way to see their families in Hawaii. This is the modern-day dictator who determined that the only way to solve the immigration crisis was to throw little bitty babies in cages where they were left to rot in the New Mexico sun until they roasted to death. This is the gruesome figure who is to blame for the death of a former first lady!
Yes, Susan Page of USA Today has a new book coming out about Barbara Bush, and her publisher determined that the best way to promote the book would be to let NBC News know that 41’s wife fell to ill health largely because of Donald J. Trump.
Barbara Bush so fiercely disliked President Donald Trump that she blamed him for what she called a heart attack and, by the end of her life, she no longer considered herself a Republican.
“I’d probably say no today,” she told USA Today’s Susan Page in an October 2017 interview on whether she was still a Republican.
The former first lady suffered what she described as a heart attack in 2016, stemming from a long battle with congestive heart failure and chronic pulmonary disease. She blamed the episode on the nasty 2016 election cycle and Trump’s relentless bashing of her son, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who ran for president in 2016 too. She told Page that “angst” contributed to the heart episode.
We’ll reserve comment on the contributing factors to Bush’s heart attack, and we’ll take it on faith that she did indeed blame Trump for the ill health. It still doesn’t quite explain why NBC News ran with this story, does it? If George Bush regularly blamed the godawful policies of Barack Obama for shortening his life, do you imagine NBC News would have made a thing of it? Well maybe, if they felt like smearing the former president as a racist. Certainly they would not insinuate that…he might have been right.
But it’s another day, another dollar for the fake liberal news media, and they know what their readers want to see. The Mueller investigation may be over, but there is still profit to be made from the Orange Man Bad narrative. They’re going to milk every last dime.
