Dick Cheney, Lindsey Graham and even George W Bush crawled out from under their stones to have a go at Donald Trump following his comments about 9/11
The GOP presidential front-runner accused former President George W. Bush of lying about the terror attacks in order to force the US into war in Iraq.
“He sounds like a liberal Democrat to me,” Cheney told Fox News “He’s wrong, and I think he’s deliberately promoting those views in order to advance his own political interests.”
Daily Kos reports:
Lindsay Graham said that Trump sounded like Michael Moore. Just throwing that in there.
“What he said about President George W. Bush being a liar and that the Bush administration is the cause of 9/11 is Michael Moore stuff,” Graham told ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
Trump said Saturday during the Republican presidential debate that President Bush “lied” to the American people by suggesting there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, even though “they knew there were none.”
The billionaire’s allegations angered fellow Republicans who have stood by the Bush administration
Next up was George W. Bush, who managed to take his shot at Trump without even saying his name
Oh, wow. The smirking Chimp himself chimes in:
George W. Bush never mentioned Donald Trump. But with his folky touch, the former president unleashed a tough takedown Monday of the billionaire businessman who has upended a Republican Party his family has long led.
“I understand Americans are angry and frustrated,” Bush said during his first campaign rally for his brother, Jeb Bush. “But we do not need somebody in the Oval Office who mirrors and inflames our anger and frustration.”

He urged voters to back a candidate who will be “measured and thoughtful” on the world stage. A candidate whose “humility” helps him understand what he doesn’t know. A candidate who can win in November’s general election.
“All the sloganeering and all the talk doesn’t matter if we don’t win,” Bush said. “We need somebody who can take a positive message across the country.”
