On Wednesday, the disgraced former President George W. Bush – a man who warned of 11 painters – finally confessed to his crimes.
“Here is an extremely and shockingly genuine clip of former President George W. Bush delivering a speech yesterday discussing Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and inadvertently admitting to being a war criminal,” he explained late night Host Seth Meyers.
Yes, during an event on “election integrity” at the George W. Bush Institute of Southern Methodist University in Dallas, the ex-president said, “One man’s decision to launch a totally unwarranted and brutal invasion of Iraq…I mean Ukraine.” “
Bush’s Freudian slip about a war that left over 1 million Iraqis dead and destabilized the region somehow elicited great laughter from the crowd.
Meyers prompted him to sip a whiskey he kept under his desk before saying: “I’m pretty sure this clip was designed in a lab to melt the brains of everyone who was alive in 2003 . Back then, if you had called the invasion of Iraq “brutal” and “unjustified,” the Bush administration and Fox News would have called you a traitor for a whole week, and every time you went to the airport, TSA would have told you given the full load of cavity hunting.” (See: The Dixie Chicks.)
He continued: “Remember, this was a time in our history that was so hysterical and intolerant of dissenters that people started calling fries ‘freedom fries’ because France was against the war – which was both was petty as well as pointless.”
The comedian then connected the Bush-era GOP to the current version.
“There is a direct line from Bush to the modern GOP,” Meyers said. “The Trump Republican Party is the natural evolution of the Bush Republican Party, which was lawless, authoritarian, and used culture war hysteria to foment resentment and scare voters just as the modern Republican Party is doing now. They just switched to other topics.”
And, lest we forget, like Trump, Bush regarded Russian tyrant Vladimir Putin as a friend and confidante, nicknamed him “Pootie Poot,” and dedicated a wall in his art show to portraits of Putin, including one a particularly embarrassing one wrestling shirtless with a bear.
