It’s revealing to watch former Bush White House members strike out against Donald Trump and his ludicrous birther claims.
One gets the sense there is a level of panic setting in that their party may be represented in the next election by its most embarrassing elements.
Earlier this week Karl Rove said Trump was discrediting the GOP. And this morning, former Bush secretary Ari Fleischer appeared on Morning Joe and called Trump a fool
I’m sorry, I think Donald Trump is making a fool of himself. When you look at what he did, it is not presidential. You do not go around saying that our current president, who I don’t agree with, is kissing people’s a**. It’s just not the temperament people look up to in the oval office. He is going to have to learn to put better one foot forward and with more delicacy….It’s one thing to be blunt and appeal to a narrow segment of the electorate, but it will not get him elected.
