When you’re already the white supremacist candidate of choice—how do you top yourself? Easily, apparently—just get the truthers behind you. Which is why Trump just went full on “Bush lied, people died.”
Everything about the above clip is good. There’s the part where the crowd boos in disgust after Trump says “I get along with everybody” when asked if he thinks Dubya should have been impeached.
N·ext, Trump does what he does best—rail into Jeb Bush, this time for flip flopping about the Iraq war in the beginning days of his candidacy.
Then his blood pressure starts to rise. His face blends in with the screen behind him as he screams about oil, Iran, and the fact that into Iraq being a mistake: “George bush made a mistake. We can make mistakes, but that one was a beauty. We should have never been in Iraq.”
The moderator then pushed him to actually answer the question at hand (whether or not he thinks Bush should have been impeached). Then, THEN, Trump does it:
“He lied. He said there were weapons of mass destruction—there were none. And then they knew there were none.” The audience, again, boos.
Jeb comes in, defends his brother, calls his dad the greatest man alive (again), and the crowd goes wild.
“The World Trade Center came down during the brother’s reign, remember that. That’s not keeping us safe,” Trump interjects.
He knew, Trump says. He knew.
The headline has been changed.
