Former Presidents Bush And Obama Speeches Take Aim At Heart Of Trumpism | Morning Joe | MSNBC


>>>WELCOME BACK TO “MORNING JOE.” IT IS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 20TH. WITH US WE HAVE A POLITICAL WRITER FOR THE NEW YORK TIMES. ASSOCIATE EDITOR FOR COMMENTARY MAGAZINE, DONNY DEUTSCHE IS STILL WITH US ALONG WITH WHITE HOUSE REPORTER FOR USA TODAY, HEIDI, AND JOINING THE CONVERSATION, NEW YORK TIMES REPORTER YA PIECE YAMICHE ALCINDOR. WE HEARD FROM PRESIDENT BUSH AND PRESIDENT OBAMA WHO ADDRESSED TODAY’S POLITICAL CLIMATE.>>WE’VE SEEN CASUAL CRUELTY. AT TIMES IT CAN SEEM LIKE THE FORCES PULLING US APART ARE STRONGER THAN THE FORCES BINDING US TOGETHER. ARGUMENT TURNS TOO LESS SI INTO AN MOSLEY. DISAGREEMENT ESCALATES INTO DEHUMANIZATION. WE’VE SEEN NATIONALISM DISTORTED INTO NATIVISM AND FORGOTTEN THE WHAT.>>WE FORGET THAT CONFLICT, INSTABILITY, AND POVERTY FOLLOW IN THE WAKE OF PROTECTIONISM. WE’VE SEEN THE RETURN OF ISOLATIONIST SENTIMENTS FORGETTING THAT AMERICAN SECURITY IS DIRECTLY THREATENED BY THE CHAOS AND DESPAIR OF DISASSISTANT PLACES. A CHANGING ECONOMY, DISCONTENT DEEPENED AND SHARPENED PARTISAN CONFLICTS. BIGOTRY SEEMS EMBOLDENED. OUR POLITICS SEEMS MORE VULNERABLE TO CONSPIRACY THEORIES AND OUTRIGHT PEOPLE SOFT EVERY RACE, RELIGION, ETHNICITY CAN BE FULLY AND EQUALLY AMERICAN. IT MEANS THAT BIGOTRY OR WHITE SUPREMACY IN ANY FORM IS BLASPHEMY AGAINST THE AMERICAN CREED.>>WHAT WE CAN’T HAVE THE SAME OLD POLITICS OF DIVISION THAT WE HAVE SEEN SO MANY TIMES BEFORE, THAT DATES BACK CENTURIES. SOME OF THE POLITICS WE SEE NOW, WE THOUGHT WE PUT THAT TO BED. I MEAN, THAT, THAT’S FOLKS LOOKING 50 YEARS BACK. IT’S THE 21st CENTURY. NOT THE 19th CENTURY. COME ON. FOLKS DON’T FEEL GOOD RIGHT NOW ABOUT WHAT THEY SEE. THEY DON’T FEEL AS IF OUR PUBLIC LIFE REFLECTS OUR BEST. INSTEAD OF OUR POLITICS REFLECTING OUR VALUES, WE’VE GOT POLITICS INFECTING OUR COMMUNITIES.>>I HAVEN’T BEEN COMMENTING A LOT ON POLITICS LATELY. BUT HERE’S ONE THING I KNOW. IF YOU HAVE TO WIN A CAMPAIGN BY DIVIDING PEOPLE, YOU’RE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO GOVERN THEM. YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO UNITE THEM LATER IF THAT’S HOW YOU START.>>MICHAEL, YOU HAD A VERY GOOD UNUSUAL SCENE YESTERDAY OF MANY FORMER PRESIDENTS, ESPECIALLY F THEIR LAST NAMES ARE BUSH. DON’T EVEN TALK ABOUT THEIR SUCCESSORS IN A NEGATIVE WAY. GEORGE W. BUSH FOR THE MOST PART BIT HIS TONGUE FOR EIGHT YEARS, EVEN WHEN THE OBAMA TEAM ADMITTED THAT THEY RAN HARD, NOT JUST JOHN McCAIN, BUT GEORGE W. BUSH, BUT YESTERDAY YOU HAD PRESIDENT BUSH, A MEMBER OF THE SAME PARTY OF THE SITTING PRESIDENT, AND BARACK OBAMA, OBVIOUSLY PRESIDENT OF THE OPPOSITE PARTY, BOTH ATTACKING THE SITTING PRESIDENT ON THE SAME DAY ON HIS BRAND OF POLITICS. GEORGE W. BUSH DEBATING BIGOTRY J LIES, ISOLATIONISM. THIS SPEECH WAS AIMED DIRECTLY AT THE HEART OF TRUMPISM.>>TOTALLY. AND, JOE, IT WAS UNUSUAL, YOU’RE RIGHT, THE BUSHES DON’T LIKE TO DO THIS. GEORGE BUSH 41 WROTE BILL CLINTON A LETTER ON INAUGURAL DAY 1993 SAYING I WILL LEAVE YOU ALONE. DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT MY CRITICIZING YOU. THE THING IS IF YOU LOOK AT ALL THIS, WHO WOULD HAVE EVER THOUGHT THAT IN THE YEAR 2017 ANY FORMER PRESIDENT WOULD FEEL THE NEED TO CRITICIZE THE SITTING PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, AND I AGREE WITH YOU THIS WAS ABSOLUTELY AIMED AT DONALD TRUMP FOR ENCOURAGING BIGOTRY AND WHITE SUPREMACY. IT’S THAT THAT’S NOT NORMAL. IT’S THAT THAT SHOULD CAUSE THE BIG DEPARTURERTURE FROM TRADITI. MODERN PRESIDENTS RESTRAIN THEMSELVES. THINK OF JIMMY CARTER IN THE EARLY 80s WHEN RONALD REAGAN WAS FOLLOWING POLICIES THAT WERE IN MANY WAYS ALMOST DIE METICALLY THE OPPOSITE. CARTER WAS VERY QUIET. THAT’S THE NORM. BUT FOR GEORGE W. BUSH, ESPECIALLY, TO DEPART FROM THAT TRADITION, YOU CAN IMAGINE HOW STRONGLY HE FEELS.>>AND HEIDI, THIS IS ON THE BACK OF THE EXTRAORDINARY SPEECH MADE BY SENATOR JOHN McCAIN. JOE BIDEN WAS THERE WITH THEM, THE FORMER VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. YOU ADD IN YESTERDAY TWO FORMER PRESIDENTS. IT SEEMS LIKE THE OLD GUARD OF AMERICAN POLITICS HAS WATCHED WHAT IT’S WATCHED OVER THE LAST NINE OR TEN MONTHS AND SAID WE’VE GOT TO COME OUT AS SAD AS IT IS AND REAFFIRM WHAT AMERICA IS. REAFFIRM OUR VALUES AND THE BEST OF THE COUNTRY. THEY’VE ALL DONE THAT SEEMINGLY ALMOST IN CONCERT OVER THE LAST WEEK OR SO.>>WHEN YOU TICK THROUGH ALL THE NAMES AND TALK ABOUT TWO FORMER PRESIDENTS IN ONE WEEK, ONE OF THE MOST SENIOR AND RESPECTED SENATORS IN JOHN McCAIN, IN HIS OWN WAY TRUMP IS UNIING PEOPLE, AND I THINK THE WAY TO LOOK AT THIS IS THESE AS SENIOR STATESMEN ARE WORRIED ABOUT THE FUNDAMENTALS OF DEMOCRACY. THAT GEORGE BUSH WHO SAT THROUGH SO MUCH DURING THE CAMPAIGN WITH HIS BROTHER BEING RIDICULED AND HIS OWN POLICIES BEING CRITICIZED WOULD CHOOSE THIS MOMENT TO SPEAK OUT, AND AS SOMEONE WHO COVERED BUSH, I CAN KIND OF UNDERSTAND, PERHAPS, SOME OF THE EMOTIONS BEHIND THIS, BECAUSE IF YOU ALL REMEMBER, PRIOR TO 9/11, WHAT GEORGE BUSH WANTED TO DO WITH THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WAS TO TAKE THE REPUBLICAN PARTY TO THE NEXT — INTO THE NEXT CENTURY, TO — BY STARTING OUT BY APPEALING TO MEXICO. THAT WAS ONE OF THE FIRST TRIPS HE MADE WAS TO GO DOWN THERE AND MAKE CLEAR THAT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WAS GOING TO BE A BIG TENT PARTY, AND WELCOME ALL. HE SAW A CONNECTION THERE, PERHAPS EVEN ON A RELIGIOUS LEVEL THAT THESE ARE PEOPLE OF FAITH. GEORGE BUSH WAS THE PERSON WHO AFTER 9/11 THEN WENT TO THAT MOSQUE IN WASHINGTON AND MADE CLEAR THAT WHATEVER KIND OF HATEFUL TENDENCIES MAY HAVE BEEN SIMMERING UNDERNEATH AND MAY HAVE BEEN DIRECTED AT AMERICAN MUSLIMS, THAT THAT WAS KEPT UNDER WRAPS. THAT HE SHOULD NOW VIEW DONALD TRUMP POTENTIALLY AS SOMEONE WHO CAME AND KICKED THAT OVER, AND UNLEASHED SOME OF THAT HATEFUL RHETORIC THAT WE’RE NOW SEEING.>>JOE, CAN I ASK YOU A QUESTION? IT’S A SOBERING THEORY. OBVIOUSLY WE’RE SEEING ALL THESE GREAT LEADERS COME FORWARD IN UNITING. WHAT SCARES ME IS IT GIVES TRUMP THE OPPORTUNITY TO BLANKET AND SAY OH, YEAH, ALL OF THE ESTABLISHMENT, ALL OF THE GUYS THAT GOT YOU IN THE SHAPE YOU’RE IN RIGHT NOW, IF YOU DON’T HAVE A JOB, OF COURSE THEY’RE COMING OUT. I AM THE SOLUTION. THERE’S A DOUBLE EDGED SWORD TO EVERYBODY COMING OUT AND PEOPLE WE RESPECT, BUT TRUMP WILL BE ABLE TO WHITEWASH THEM WITH PROBLEMS OF THE PAST. OF COURSE THEY’RE SPEAKING OUT THIS WAY.>>HE COULD DO THAT. I THINK THE MOST IMPORTANT THING NOW IS FOR PEOPLE THAT ONCE SUPPORTED DONALD TRUMP WHO ALSO VOTED FOR GEORGE W. BUSH TWICE OR MAYBE PEOPLE THAT VOTED FOR DONALD TRUMP BUT VOTED FOR BARACK OBAMA TWICE, AND THERE’S CERTAINLY A LOT OF THEM IN THE UPPER MIDWEST. THEY’LL LOOK AT THE MEN THEY VOTED FOR TWICE, MEN THEY RESPECTED AND SAY WAIT A SECOND, MAYBE THEY’RE ONTO SOMETHING. AND NOAH, EVERY TIME THAT I — MY RETWEETS THESE DAYS ARE USUALLY OF WRITERS LIKE YOU AND JOHN PADORITZ AND OTHERS, NOAH, THAT ARE WELL KNOWN CONSERVATIVES, PEOPLE THAT HAVE A CONSE CONSERVATIVE FOLLOWING CONTINUE TO BE SKEPTICAL OF WHAT DONALD TRUMP IS DOING TO CONSERVATISM, THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND THE NATION AS A WHOLE. DON’T YOU SUSPECT THAT GEORGE W. BUSH COMING OUT WILL AT LEAST SEND A SIGNAL TO SOME TRADITIONAL REPUBLICANS THAT MAYBE IT’S NOT JUST THOSE TALKING HEADS ON TV? MAYBE THIS GUY IS DISCONNECTING US FROM WHAT MADE US — MADE THE CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT THE CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT.>>I WISH IT WOULD. I’M A LITTLE SKEPTICAL. GEORGE W. BUSH RECEIVED A LOT OF CRITICISM FROM CONSERVATIVES ON A VARIETY OF ISSUES. COMPASSIONATE CONSERVATISM RANG IN THE EARS OF SPENDING. YOU’RE ALREADY SEEING FROM TRUMP SUPPORTERS THAT THIS SPEECH, THEY ARE CONFLATING IT WITH IMMIGRATION REFORM. THEY’RE SAYING A PATHWAY TO CITIZENSHIP IS WHAT GEORGE BUSH’S LEGACY WAS SUPPOSED TO BE. THAT’S A CON FLAGS OF ISSUES AND PEOPLE NEED TO SAY YOU REMEMBER JOURNAL KUREAL, THE MUSLIM DATABASE, REMEMBER HOW WE SAD A SELECTIVE MEMORY ABOUT DAVID DUKE? AND YOU WOULDN’T WANT ME TO DENOUNCE GROUPS I WOULDN’T KNOW ANYTHING BEING THE KKK. IT’S NOT AS THOUGH THE NAZI SYMPATHIZERS CAME FROM NOWHERE. THIS HAPPENED OVER THE COURSE OF A VERY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, AND IT WAS INSPIRED AND LEGITIMIZED FROM SOMEWHERE, AND WE NEED TO BE CLEAR ABOUT WHAT THAT IS IN SERIOUS TERMS. THIS ISN’T ABOUT IMMIGRATION OR THE BORDER. THIS IS ABOUT RHETORIC, SENTIMENT, ABOUT WHAT THE COUNTRY MEANS.>>YAMICHE, THERE’S ALSO THE EFFORT BY GENERAL KELLY YESTERDAY TO ADDRESS THE OTHER ISSUE THAT HAS JUST BEEN SO STUNNINGLY SAD GIVEN THE NATIONAL CONVERSATION. THAT IS THE GOLD STAR FAMILIES AND HOW THEY’RE TREATED AT THEIR TIME OF NEED. DO YOU THINK THE FORMER PRESIDENTS’ WORDS HURT OR HELP JOHN KELLY TO HELP PRESIDENT TRUMP DO HIS JOB AND EDUCATECAT HIM?>>I THINK JOHN KELLY IN SOME WAYS ECHO WHAT GEORGE BUSH SAID AND BARACK OBAMA. THERE WERE SACRED VALUES THAT AMERICANS THOUGHT THERE WERE THINGS — THAT WERE SACRED. WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT JOHN KELLY’S SPEECH, TALKING ABOUT WOMEN AND THE ARMY, THE ISSUE HERE, OF COURSE, IS THAT I INTERVIEWED THEM. I ACTUALLY GOT IN TOUCH WITH THE MOTHER OF SERGEANT JOHNSON. WE WERE EXCHANGING FACEBOOK MESSAGES. WHAT SHE TOLD ME WAS THAT SHE WAS BACKING THE CONGRESSWOMAN’S VERSION OF THE EVENTS. I THINK WHAT’S IMPORTANT THERE IS WHILE GENERAL KELLY BACKED UP HIS BOSS AND SAID I SUPPORT THE WAY PRESIDENT TRUMP DID THIS, HE SAID HE WAS TRYING AND ESSENTIALLY FAILING TO BE EMPATHETIC TO THIS FAMILY. HE DIDN’T MENTION THE FACT THAT THE GOLD STAR FAMILY THEMSELVES ALSO FELT DISRESPECTED AND THAT THE SOLDIER’S MOTHER APART FROM THE CONGRESSWOMAN HAD REAL ISSUES WITH THE WAY THE PRESIDENT SPOKE TO SERGEANT JOHNSON’S WIDOW. HE DIDN’T SAY ANY OF THAT. I THINK THAT BECAME A POLITICAL MOMENT. IT’S THE IDEA THAT WHILE JOHN KELLY, WHO IS A GOLD STAR FAMILY HIMSELF, IS TALK ABOUT THE PRESIDENT AND SAYING THAT THIS WEEK, THAT WE’VE IN SOME WAYS KIND OF TAKEN AWAY THE SACREDNESS OF GOLD STAR FAMILIES. HE DIDN’T SAY THIS COMMANDER IN CHIEF FAILED WHEN HE TALKED TO THIS GOLD STAR FAMILY. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WAS IMPORTANT WAS PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID THE CONGRESSWOMAN COMPLETELY FABRICATED THIS. THAT HE DIDN’T SAY ANYTHING LIKE THAT. GENERAL KELLY SAID HE DID SAY EXACTLY WHAT THE CONGRESSWOMAN SAID, HE JUST MEANT IT IN A DIFFERENT WAY, AND YOU CAN SEE THE WAY GENERAL KELLY SAID IT WOULD BE IMPORTANT. I THINK THE ALSO IMPORTANT THING TO NOTE HERE IS WHEN WE TALK ABOUT GEORGE BUSH AND BARACK OBAMA, I’VE TALKED TO PEOPLE WHO ARE BOTH WORKING IN HOMELAND SECURITY, AND THOSE PEOPLE TELL ME THAT WHEN YOU LOOK AT GEORGE BUSH AND HIS LEGACY, HE WAS A PRESIDENT WHO ESSENTIALLY SAW THE BEGINNING OF A SYSTEM WHERE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WERE RACIALLY PROFILED. THIS WAS A PRESIDENT WHO HAD HURRICANE KATRINA AND PEOPLE BLATANTLY SAYING THE PRESIDENT DIDN’T CARE ABOUT AFRICAN AMERICANS IN NEW ORLEANS AND FAILED THEM IN THE HEIGHT OF A CRISIS. WE TALK ABOUT GEORGE BUSH, IT’S IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT WHILE IN SOME WAYS PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS CHANGED THE EXPECTATIONS FOR PRESIDENTS, THAT YOU SHOULD JUST BE ABLE TO CALL OUT WHITE SUPREMACY MUCH LIKE GEORGE BUSH DID. IT WAS OBVIOUSLY NOT AN ISSUE FOR HIM TO DO THAT WHERE PRESIDENT TRUMP STRUGGLED AT THE END OF CHARLOTTESVILLE. PRESIDENT BUSH HAS HIS OWN HISTORY WHEN IT COMES TO RACE. THERE WERE SOME WHO SAID YOU OVERSAW A RACIST REGIME. WHEN WE THINK ABOUT IT HIM, IT’S INTERESTING TO ME TO SEE HIM IN THIS LIGHT, BECAUSE HE IS HAVING A SECOND LIFE, BUT THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO REMEMBER THE FACT THAT THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE DIED IN AFGHANISTAN AND THOUSANDS OF GOLD STAR FAMILIES WERE THINKING ABOUT THAT.>>JOE?>>WELL, MICHAEL, PEOPLE WHO SAID THAT GEORGE W. BUSH RAN A RACIST REGIME ARE — TO SAY ENGAGING HYPERBOLE WOULD BE KIND.>>YES.>>THIS IS A MAN –>>I AGREE.>>WHO AFTER 9/11, WHO HALF 9/11 WENT TO A MUSLIM CENTER IN THE IMMEDIATE AFTERMATH OF 9/11, AND EMBRACED MUSLIMS AND SAID –>>ABSOLUTELY –>>THAT ATTACKING MUSLIMS WOULD BE UN-AMERICAN WHEN IT WAS PROBABLY THE VERY UNPOPULAR THING FOR HIM TO DO. AND I SPEAK AS SOMEONE WHO IS ANYBODY WHO WATCHED ME ON TV FROM 2004 TO 2008, EVISCERATED GEORGE W. BUSH EVERY NIGHT. SO I HAVE NOT BEEN A POLITICAL FAN OF HIS, BUT THE ONE THING I ALWAYS RESPECTED ABOUT GEORGE W. BUSH IS EVEN IF I DIDN’T AGREE WITH A LOT OF HIS POLICIES, HE DID UNDERSTAND WHAT DONALD TRUMP DOESN’T. AND THAT WE ARE BETTER AS A NATION WHEN WE ARE UNITED, AND ANY BIGOTRY, ANY BIGOTRY, EVEN AS HE SAID, THE SOFT BIGOTRY OF LOW EXPECTATIONS IS UNACCEPTABLE.>>I TOTALLY AGREE WITH WHAT YOU’VE JUST SAID, JOE, AND I THINK THAT’S WHAT MOVED HIM TO COME AND SPEAK OUT YESTERDAY WHICH AS WE SAID IS NOT EASY FOR HIM. AND I THINK WHAT HE SAID UNDERLINES THE FACT THAT WE’VE NEVER SEEN THIS BEFORE IN HISTORY. JOE, THERE ARE FIVE FORMER PRESIDENTS LIVING RIGHT NOW. HOW MANY OF THEM DOES DONALD TRUMP HAVE ANY RELATIONSHIP WITH? ZERO. WE HAVEN’T SEEN THAT BEFORE IN AMERICAN HISTORY. AND I THINK DONNY IS RIGHT. THAT HE WILL USE THAT AS A FOIL. I THINK IT DOES SAY SOMETHING ABOUT THIS PRESIDENCY AND WHAT GEORGE W. BUSH WAS BASICALLY, ESSENTIALLY SAYING WAS DONALD TRUMP MAY BE TRYING TO SUGGEST HE’S PART OF SOME GREAT MODERN HISTORICAL CURRENT IN HISTORY THAT’S LEGITIMATE. WHAT HE WAS BASICALLY SAYING YESTERDAY WAS THAT ABSOLUTELY WRONG. DONALD TRUMP AND THE PEOPLE WHO ENCOURAGE HIM AND THE PEOPLE WHO TALK ABOUT WHITE SUPREMACY AND BIGOTRY, THEY ARE FRINGE AND HAVE TO BE CALLED THAT. THAT’S SOMETHING WE HAVEN’T SEEN IN RECENT TIMES.>>AND NICK, I’M CURIOUS. I WANT TO GET YOUR OPINION ON WHAT DONNY DEUTSCHE ASKED EARLIER ABOUT WHETHER YESTERDAY WAS A POSITIVE OR SOMETHING TRUMP WOULD USE. FOR ME, AND MAYBE I’M OPTIMISTIC, I THINK YESTERDAY SHOWED THAT DONALD TRUMP AND STEVE BANNON ARE CLINGING TO A WAY OF LIFE THAT WAS DYING 50 YEARS AGO. THAT DONALD TRUMP WILL ALWAYS BE SEEN AS THE DEATH CRY OF THIS EXTREMISM, THIS NATIONALISM, THIS NATIVISM. WHAT DID YOU SEE WHEN YOU SAW GEORGE BUSH AND BARACK OBAMA AND EVEN JOHN KELLY TALKING ABOUT WE ARE A NATION THAT ONCE VALUED SACRIFICE AND VALUED WOMEN AND TREATED THEM WITH RESPECT. THAT ONCE VALUED THE FALLEN AND THEIR FAMILIES. HOW DID YOU TAKE IN EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY?>>SPEAKING OF BUSH OBAMA, I HAD A DIFFERENT REACTION. I SAW TWO MEN WHOSE POLICIES WERE IN SOME SENSE REPUDIATED BY THE ELECTION OF PRESIDENT TRUMP, AND I SAW THEM KIND OF SHOUTING INTO THE WIND. PRESIDENT BUSH LEFT OFFICE DEEPLY UNPOPULAR. HE PLUNGED THIS COUNTRY INTO A WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST THAT’S RESHAPING THE WORLD AND OUR COUNTRY AND A BUBBLE ECONOMY THAT LED TO A HUGE CRASH. AND THOSE THINGS GAVE RISE TO DONALD TRUMP, SET THE CONDITION FOR HIM TO RISE. I THINK IT’S TRUMP’S PARTY NOW. BUSH WAS FORCEFUL IN KEEPING A LID ON THIS KIND OF NATIONALISM WHEN HE WAS PRESIDENT. HE SPOKE AT A MOSQUE, BUT I THINK THE FORS WERE ALWAYS THERE. I THINK TRUMP HAS UNLEASHED THEM AND WE CAN’T GO BACK, AND I’M NOT SURE WE WILL GO BACK TO A DIFFERENT TIME ANYMORE.>>MICHAEL AND

  1. Bush and obama are way off base, here a que, check ya self first. Yall both along with decades of other problems, started the new problems nationally and internationally. Leave trump alone

  2. I was vocal against Bushs policy, but I never EVER questioned his sincerity and his character… I just can't believe people stilll support Donald Trump. He is a pig, when people ask "hey what's wrong with him what wrongs has he done?" There's so many I just don't know where to go… because there's so many you have to generalize it; lies, no empathy, bigotry, nativism, division… it's sad

  3. Trump is leading the country and doing big important things and these idiots are crying for 12 months non stop . Thats what it is.

  4. I have become so disgusted with ex president George W. Bush that I went and unscrewed my septic tank cap and threw his presidential coin he gave me while at WRAMC helping in the care of my son. That is what I think of Bush now. As far as Obama goes, he's not even worth giving a reply about. That's how low he is. I am finally proud to have a President who loves America, and puts Americans first. President Trump will get my vote again in 2020.

  5. one of the guests seems to forget that Hillary won the popular vote by over 3 million….hardly a statement against President Obama

  6. It's so nice to hear and understand former President's. Their speeches were brilliant. I didn't even like Bush but he spoke to me and I loved it. Obama is outstanding. Truth is truth. I miss hearing great eloquent talk without retartedly trying to follow a prompter. It was nice.

  7. God bless George W Bush and Barack Obama there on the right direction but trump he's not helping he's wasting people's time and Trump is misleading the American people in the wrong direction.

  8. This was all staged for the coming of revelations. Get right with God. It is all unfolding. He would leave for a period of time then he would return. I pray in Jesus name. Amen

  9. I'm African American and so proud of President Bush and President Obama speaking against racism. Our democracy is at state and Trump is a traitor. Russian will take over America if Trump is not impeach. Trump is a sell out to our country.Disgrace!!!

  10. People,we seem to forget that a President is a public servant.That is ALL he is.He's not a god,he's not a KING.If we stand together we can bring him down.

  11. to watch the bushes and Obamas together makes my skin crawl bush is a coward and Obama a terrorist the world would be better off not hearing ethier one spew their crap to the world

  12. I think it is important to remember that those views, nationalistic, racist, homophobic and so on, won't ever go away. There will always be somebody who thinks he or she is better because of skincolour or the colour of their faeces.
    The issue here is, that they can't ever be acceptable again in society. That 99 Percent of the people say no and say WHY they are saying no.
    Facts are needed. Teaching people how to seek unbiased information and forming their own opinions based on facts, that is what America and in fact, humanity needs.

  13. It is sickening to see a man like bush gloat the way his is in the thumbnail this is a man who has committed countless atrocities to mankind with the killing of so many innocent Muslims you've poured sugar on the devil himself

  14. They are all on the same side. They all have Saudi money in their bank accounts. All the Trump haters here need a reality check. George W. Bush set the world on fire with his reckless wars. Obama doubled the debt with his bank bailouts. Go back even further, Bill Clinton screwed over the blue collar industries with terrible trade deals. And these are the great presidents that we are supposed to revere? Forget the mainstream rhetoric, Trump has made the United States better militarily and economically. And all with less money. Who did better, Bush with Katrina or Trump with 3 hurricanes at once.. We all know the answer.

  15. What we are hearing, is two former presidents who fear losing the framework and progression of The UN Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030, which was started in 1992, under G. Bush Sr.. Trump was not my choice in 2016, but he is trying his best to reverse what the past four presidents have greedily done to harm America; while increasing their own wealth and The UN moves the world toward a one world government. I can assure you the great majority of Americans are not prejudice, want a more honest and transparent government, want a fair tax, want the immigration laws upheld and sanctuary cities/counties/states deemed unlawful (which they are), want a strong economy, want employment on an upward swing……just realized, Trump's administration is doing all of this.

  16. Bush Junior's speech was preposterous when he equated security the southern border to "nativism." The sad truth is that Bush Junior was a pampered globalist.

  17. LOL Bush is such a loser!! He barely won when he got elected by a couple hundred votes in Florida. Trump flipped blue states that haven't gone blue since before I was born! GO TRUMP!!!

  18. Conspiracy theories??? Lolol nooooo it's called TRUTH …Take a seat u two pos!!!
    Obama talking about dividing people???
    That's all he did!!!! He's the biggest racist of all
    He above all presidents crewed more division than any other president

  19. The bigotry and hatred come from the left. Obama and Bush are one in the same……traitors to this great country. Marxism was just within reach for them but Trump came along, smashed them both and then wiped them off his shoe.

  20. As we watch our current president alienate everyone on earth, lets take time out to remember back to a time when we didn't elect reality tv stars to be president

  21. Wow! I'm speechless…these presidents are so in dark about the state of this great country! I'm so grateful to God that we finally have a wise president in the White House!! Time will tell who was the best president… just be patient.

  22. U two are not the president any more so say home and lat trump take over America it is his turn trump is doing a better job than you to guy I see light on other end u two are scrub

  23. I admire GW more since he left office,in fact i am impressed with his real talk and intelligence. Mr trump is an embarassment to our great democracy,he has divided our people in the ugliest,lowest way, appealing to our most basic fears and building. He presents the ugliest character defects of a hateful society.i cant believe 49 percent of our nations populace want a divided nation.trump has not a decent thing to say about anything,except himself and matters related to himself. I dont know,I had many problems with GW and his policies. But he has more of a sense of history,of tradition,of american values that trump has no idea exists.If trump is the new face of republican politics,im glad i am not a republican.

  24. You are liars Trump has never used division unless you count division over corruption… It's the corrupt people that are crying now! They wanted to take us to the next century on our knees. That's not the American way. When Bush supports O that should tell you who he and his family really are. "Birds of a FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER" Oh, they sure like to bad mouth The Donald, don't they? The signal is they are all corrupt and running scared…My Paryer God Save President Trump from his enemies…

  25. Since he's talking about Trump now he's your friend. You guys are evil! Trump came to clean things up, and you guys are part of the problem. But I don't expect you guys to change because your words speak for themselves you wanted to take us down a sick road. "A way of life that was dying 50 years ago?" You say, Joe. Our parents made this country what we all have benefited from, including all of those who are collecting well-fare, from the American taxpayers and then proceed to talk bad about our country…I for one will never buy into your communist rhetoric, and I won't apologize for wanting to make America Great Again!
    God's Speed to Trump…
    Signed
    A deplorable

  26. FAKE NEWS ALERT !!!……………..BUSH =EVIL SNAKE =9/11=LIED ABOUT WOMD INVADED IRAQ…CAUSED MILLIONS OF DEATH OF USA SOLDIERS, INNOCENT CHILDREN, CHENEY OWNED OIL CO THAT PROFITED FROM THE OIL FIELDS, BUSH SENIOR INVOLVED IN JFK DEATH =CIA BLACK OPS.

THE WORLD NEEDS EVERYONE TO SMARTEN UP, THE CORRUPTION NEEDS TO BE EXPOSED AND TAKEN DOWN. ….GOD BLESS THE BRAVE SOULS WHO AT LEAST DECIDE THIS MIGHT BE WORTH THINKING ABOUT. THAT IS WHY WE WERE GIVEN BRAINS, AND THE THIRST FOR KNOWLEDGE… KNOWLEDGE IS POWER''' POWER BACK TO THE PEOPLE" ASAP. !!

  27. OBAMA and CLINTON COLLUDED AND CONTROLLED THE F.I.B AND C.I.A TO OVERTHROW THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES DONALD J TRUMP AND THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

  28. We do not worry of your lying disgusting way for we have a greater power who is taking aim at you. Soon His wrath will come swiftly and He will smite you all down for your lying ways. We know you are led by the devil and we know your lying ways so we the people have asked God to intervene to go to battle for us. We will win because God is the higher power.

  29. Both idiot's and traitor's liar's and lie's you both need to be hung high to bad it is not 19th century you would be hung, loser's oh clintons too….

  30. The left wing and the right wing of the same bird, exposed.  They have played the American people like a fiddle for about 100 years.

  31. This was not strange behaviour by these former Presidents , you only have to know what the real meaning behind this behaviour is, look at your own attitude of the MSNBC against Trump is. The MSM are the real quilty here, which are divide the United States of America.

  32. I did not know GWB could read this well…… and he is using tremendous bigly words bigger than Tramp uses.

  33. BOLA DE SOCIALISTAS. BOLA DE ANTIPATRIOTA. BOLA DE TRAIDORES. BOLA DE MENTIROSOS. BOLA DE CORRUPTOS. TE LO DICE EL CAPORAL

  34. Look who are talking? Bush & Obama….a tool of the deep state…Soros and his associates the unelected president of the USA, a puppet master…but unfortunately his game ended in Trump era…the real elected president by the people, for the people and of the people…you only see or hear the deep state legacy from the liberals whining and their attacks on the genuine Elected President of the USA.

  35. This is a Circus ……………… One Clown destroyed the economy, and the other Clown does not know how to fix it

  36. Obama and Hillary did a lot of the dividing by using their political power to show favoritism to minority's and race baitors and terrorist..Obama restructured the whole dept of justice each and every time racist black groups whined and protested…Obama allowed cival rights leaders to portray police Dept's across america as Dept's of racist white cops…when Obama should have stood up for the rule of law rather than playing to his race like he did.Hillary turned a blind eye as Americans got murdered in bengossi…then deflected and denied any responsibility when she could have saved lives… she did nothing. Obama refused to call terrorist…terrorist…and did nothing after watching Assad gas his own people..Obama was a coward liberal in his last term…Hillary was the one colluding with the Russians…selling them american uranium…then banking the money from the sale into her account…Obama structured the DOJ to frame trump before trump ever took office.. I don't agree with trump always..but Obama and Hillary planted all the evidence to frame trump…using the DOJ …trump is innocent like he claims..

  37. Bush his grandfather supported Hitler,  Hitler used Democrats Jim Crow laws against blacks to write his Nuremberg laws against the Jewish people . Obama and Bush are globalist and hypocrites.   Wake up these are satan's minions.

  38. I yearn for days of civility and honor. Our past Presidents always respected each other even when they disagreed. Always Patriots.

  39. Yes the world is ending ..come on America ?..Obama and Bush?..you all have selective amnesia . Your economy is booming and the jobs market ..figures do not lie . You all live in a bubble and forget the past very quickly …you select your news ..What did Bush do ? Oh we have 911 ..weapons of mass destruction (lies)…soon forgotten ?…Obama did nothing about Russia …he said they could not change an election …he also sold Uranium to Russia …he destroyed Libya . I am not a Trump supporter but the guy was elected like Obama ..like Bush …all he gets is daily trashing …America is a great country ??? Thats your opinion ??? All you have is a war background for years …human life and money down the pan ..playing constant war games with other countries and trying to manipulate other governments …none of that under Donald Trump ..you agree with nothing .. How about Peace and Diplomacy for a change ? How about trying to change the narrative ? Good Luck America !

  40. How often have we seen former presidents stand shoulder to shoulder with a current president ? I've never seen former presidents criticize a sitting president. It has to tell you something.

  41. Well. Obama is assuming that Trump doesn’t lie to himself. He pretends a that the part of America he leads is 99.9% of everyone. That’s where Obama is being naive. Trump’s former “Midas touch” false celebrity self promotion made him think the whole world thinks of him as a savvy property developer when, in fact, he uses false “Midas touch” pretenses to convince lenders for him to solely invest in self aggrandizing Trump monuments.
    That being said, we need him in office. Because his base cannot grow or evolve by policy, press or intellectually stimulated discussion. It’s “petrified” nationalism that’s predicated on hatred for liberals
    The only way for that ugly, ignorant and stubborn part of society to advance is war, calamity or compete tragic destruction of their idol, Trump

  42. Obama still the great orator, but didn't expect that from Bush. Man Bush makes Trump look like a little kid throwing tantrums when he doesn't get what he wants!!

  43. This is how we could be, if we understood that America is all of us together. I fear for our nation. But perhaps John’s funeral was the wake up call we needed, on both right and left. Maybe those millions of Trump voters who have been brain washed to believe anyone who doesn’t agree with them is the enemy, might break out, and remember what it was like to respect and even love our political advisories.

  44. I did not like the direction W took the country, and a lot of the problems that Obama had to deal with were because of him. But I never thought he was a bad person, unlike the buffoon we have in the WH today.

  45. Young American's who enjoy your Liberty and Freedom, Satin has brought his minion obama back to lull into into his trance once again to believe in liberalism and socialist "Utopia" It will be your demise and turn you into "Slaves"! WAKE UP, stop with the legal marijuana to cloud your minds and RESIST obama and satin!!

  46. Never has been a situation where past President have to come out of retirement….to lecture us, remind us about the who we're supposed to be!!!

  47. Obama,Bush, Clinton and Carter. All New World Order Globalists. All pals under all the fake in fighting. They are outraged that Trump wants to make America Great Again. This speech is full of lies and propaganda. We dont want division they say but they create it and blame it on our Patriots.

  48. FAKE NEWS. Democrats love the dumbasses that follow them. You are doing it again. Handing Trump another White House win with all your hate. Keep up the good work we appreciate all you can do. I love you haters.

  49. Bush always made me think of Warren Harding. Both "hail fellow well met" kind of people. Cracker barrel and bridge buddies. A little too wiling to befriend, when, because of the job they should have been more cautious. So Bush, being affable, let Cheney walk all over him until he looked absolutely clueless re the war.
