Although Bush, 92, had intended to stay silent on the presidential race it seems he could not overcome his distaste for "The Donald".
The news comes from Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend, the former Maryland lieutenant governor and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy! She announced it via her Facebook page...
Well, okay then!
Jim McGrath, a spokesman for the Bush family, released a statement after the news broke saying...
“The vote President Bush will cast as a private citizen in some 50 days will be just that: a private vote cast in 50 days. He is not commenting on the presidential race in the interim.”
Though the Bush family has remained mum on their 2016 election voting the senior Bush did say he would not endorse Trump nor would his son George W. Bush. I think we can all be damn sure Jeb won't be backing the man who mocked him as "low energy" and ran him out of the 2016 race on a rail.
Does this endorsement make a bit of difference? Probably not but it just may cause the thin skinned Trump to take his eye of the prize and begin attacking targets that aren't Hillary Clinton.
