Former President George H.W. Bush is bucking his party's presidential nominee and plans to vote for Hillary Clinton in November, according to a member of another famous political family, the Kennedys.
Bush, 92, had intended to stay silent on the White House race between Clinton and Donald Trump, a sign in and of itself of his distaste for the GOP nominee. But his preference for the wife of his own successor, President Bill Clinton, nonetheless became known to a wider audience thanks to Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend, the former Maryland lieutenant governor and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy.
On Monday, Townsend posted a picture on her Facebook page shaking hands next to the former president and this caption: "The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!!”
Asked about Townsend’s post, George H.W. Bush spokesman Jim McGrath in an email replied, "The vote President Bush will cast as a private citizen in some 50 days will be just that: a private vote cast in some 50 days. He is not commenting on the presidential race in the interim."
Yep, no denial.
Personally I have no problem believing that Poppy Bush is going to vote for Hillary.
He has said that he thinks of Bill Clinton as another son, and his dislike of Donald Trump is well known.
Not to mention that he is a REAL Republican who respects and understands how the government works, it is inconceivable to think that he would cast a vote for Cheeto Jesus.
I actually think that it is very likely that the entire Bush clan, including George W., Jeb, Barbara, Laura, the two daughters, and a number of others in the family will ALL vote for Hillary.
And seriously, who could blame them?
