First George H.W. Bush said he would vote for Hillary Clinton; now it turns out a daughter of George W. Bush, Barbara Bush, attends a Clinton fundraiser in Paris – with Huma Abedin no less.
Abedin, much hated by Republicans as some sort of alleged Muslim fifth columnist, hosted the event along with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
The photo above was posted to Instagram with the hashtag “#imwithher.”
That’s two Bushes apparently now with her, while Jeb Bush has said he won’t vote for either candidate and Barbara’s father has not yet revealed for whom he will vote.
Trump is rapidly running out of big name Republican allies, as hardly a day goes by without one Republican or another endorsing Clinton, including several prominent conservative newspapers. The Trump cause appears to be sinking, and he has only himself to blame.
Conservative pundit S.E. Cupp noted that conservatives like Bush don’t recognize their conservatism in Trump, but that Trump doesn’t think he needs conservatives like the Bushes.
Of course, all Trump has in his corner at this point are racists and other bigots, and a few stragglers like Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, who embody all the ugliness preached by Trump.
Barbara Bush has shown in this single classy gesture, that you can hold your head up high as a conservative show you still want what’s best for this country, rather than what’s best for Donald Trump.

His interests include, besides history and philosophy, human rights issues, freedom of choice, religion, and the precarious dichotomy of freedom of speech and intolerance.

He maintains his own blog, A Heathen’s Day, which deals with Heathen and Pagan matters, and Mos Maiorum Foundation www.mosmaiorum.org, dedicated to ethnic religion.
