Just when Donald Trump was almost assuredly thinking that things couldn’t get much worse for him regarding the impending 2020 election, a new report now indicates that literally hundreds of former officials who served under former Republican President George W. Bush are set to endorse Joe Biden for president.
According to three different organizers who recently spoke to Reuters, who first broke the news of the report, the former Bush officials have now formed a political action committee called “43 Alumni for Biden” (referring to George W. Bush serving as the 43rd president of the United States) featuring Cabinet secretaries and other senior individuals from the Bush administration, with the specific intent of supporting and endorsing Joe Biden in his run for the presidency against Donald Trump.
The group released a statement that announced their formation today.
The Super PAC intends to release “testimonial videos” from several various, high-profile Republicans featuring praise for the Democratic nominee, as well as hold get-out-the-vote efforts in the most prominent swing states across the nation.
“We know what is normal and what is abnormal, and what we are seeing is highly abnormal. The president is a danger,” Jennifer Millikin, an organized of the Bush Alumni Super PAC and former 2004 Bush campaign and General Services Administration employee, said.
Other members who spoke with Reuters include Karen Kirksey who worked on the Bush 2000 campaign and Kristopher Purcell who served as a communication official under the Bush administration.
Reports indicate that the former president has knowledge of the Super PAC, but does not appear to be involved.
A spokesperson for Bush said that he has retired “and won’t be wading into this election.”
However, Bush did receive praise for his statements regarding George Floyd’s recent murder and the COVID-19 pandemic that’s still raging through the nation.
The Republican group feels that Biden has the integrity needed to pull America out of the trenches in the wake of the Trump presidency, despite their political differences.
“This November, we are choosing country over party,” Purcell stated. “We believe that a Biden administration will adhere to the rule of law… and restore dignity and integrity to the White House.”
“We really have had overwhelming support for our efforts,” Kirksey added.
Unsurprisingly so, the Trump campaign is none too thrilled about this recent development, with Trump campaign spokesperson Erin Perrine saying of the Super PAC, “This is the swamp – yet again – trying to take down the duly elected President of the United States.”
Frankly, if you ask me, you can smell their fear from here. Because Trump and all his cronies, if they have even a shred of common sense, know that he’s going down. Quickly.
