George W. Bush remains a stain of a human being. He is the worst president we’ve ever had and continues to be a moral black hole. So no, I’m not surprised by the latest evidence that yes, George W. Bush is shitty:
On Wednesday, ABC News reported that Bush charged $100,000 to speak at a charity fundraiser for U.S. military veterans severely wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan, and former First Lady Laura Bush collected $50,000 to appear a year earlier. The former President was also provided with a private jet to travel to Houston at a cost of $20,000, the officials said.
Bush is a multimillionaire. His brother is a multimillionaire, as is his father. Many of those men were wounded because George W. Bush decided to send them into war for no reason beyond his own rotting ego and a desire to get over his daddy issues. And even if you dispense with the ghoulish idea of Bush going to any sort of veteran’s charity, the idea that he cashed in on it is disgusting.
But that is what George W. Bush does. He does the most disgusting things because his entire world has always been about his own private profit and enjoyment. A man who could sit in the Oval Office and be so flippant about the loss of human life on the battlefield due to his own incompetence is not capable of hitting any ground while digging for his immorality. He is the worst that a human being can be.
Oh, and some of the money that was used to pay off Bush may have come from a Ponzi scheme.
