During his 9/11 memorial speech in n Shanksville, Pa on September 11th, George W. Bush politically pandered to the left comparing the riot on January 6th and Trump supporters to terrorist attacks.
“We have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders but from violence that gathers within,” Bush said.
“There is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home. But in their disdain for pluralism, in their disregard for human life, in their determination to defile national symbols — they are children of the same foul spirit, and it is our continuing duty to confront them.”
President DOnald Trump fired back at the old Rhino president, saying that he “shouldn’t be lecturing anybody!”. Trump noted that Bush was the one who got the United States into Afghanistan and started a war without finishing it.
“So interesting to watch former President Bush, who is responsible for getting us into the quicksand of the Middle East (and then not winning!), as he lectures us that terrorists on the ’right’ are a bigger problem than those from foreign countries that hate America, and that are pouring into our Country right now,” Trump said in an emailed statement.
“If that is so, why was he willing to spend trillions of dollars and be responsible for the death of perhaps millions of people? He shouldn’t be lecturing us about anything. The World Trade Center came down during his watch. Bush led a failed and uninspiring presidency. He shouldn’t be lecturing anybody!,” he said.

Nearly 3,000 people were killed when the hijacked planes were flown into the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon near Washington, DC, and when United Airlines Flight 93 crashed in the Pennsylvania countryside outside of Shanksville, PA.
Flight 93 did not arrive at the hijackers’ intended target – the Nation’s Capital – because of the selfless and courageous actions of the 40 passengers and crew members on board. When Flight 93 was hijacked, the passengers and crew members used airfones on the plane to contact the authorities and their loved ones before crashing the plane and saving countless lives.
Their sacrifice shouldn’t be used by anyone to make a political point, especially a former president.
