Dear George W. Bush, Please Recommit to Your Vow of Silence

George Bush said nary a negative word during Barack Obama’s presidency. There were delightful photo ops, but no criticism, no passive aggressive interviews, no words of advice.

The same cannot be true for President Bush’s words just past the first month of Trump’s presidency. In an interview with People Magazine, the former president said this:

But one rocky month into Trump’s tenure, it’s harder to keep quiet.

“I don’t like the racism and I don’t like the name-calling and I don’t like the people feeling alienated,” Bush, 70, tells PEOPLE in an interview for the new issue of the magazine on newsstands Friday.

“Nobody likes that.”

Before this election, I said that the Republicans would be infinitely harder on a President Trump than they would be a President Clinton. I still believe that.

It would be nice if everyone just let the political phenom find his way for a bit. Donald Trump has months, years, to learn how to be a duplicitous politician.

Give him time.

P.S. This doesn’t take away from the President’s amazing work with veterans and his painting. The more attention given and money raised, the better.
