There was only one appropriate response for Donald Trump to have to the news that former President George W. Bush didn’t vote for him: “sad!”
“I think it’s sad, you know. When I see George Bush do that, and look I was very critical of him for getting us into Iraq, which was obviously a horrible decision, and getting out the way Obama got us out was a horrible way to get out too— the combination. I don’t think it has any impact, frankly. I think it has no impact,” Trump said during a Tuesday interview with conservative radio host Howie Carr, according to the Washington Post.
Carr had asked Trump about a statement from a family spokesman, which stated that the 43rd President and former First Lady Laura Bush did not vote for president but did fill out the rest of their ballot for Republicans.
Carr also asked Trump about Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who said he had voted for the independent candidate Evan McMullin, a former CIA officer largely viewed as an anti-Trump protest vote for conservatives.
“It’s absolutely insane. All you’re doing is giving up the Supreme Court,” Trump said. “I beat him very badly in the primary. People forget that. He was easy pickins. Rather than manning up he goes and does a thing like that.”
