How times change.
George W. Bush, a president so divisive that the entire country nearly came apart during his reign of war and economic collapse, is suddenly the darling of the mainstream media — the very mainstream media that became more hyper-partisan than ever specifically to oppose him.
Bush and the media now have a common enemy: Donald Trump. And Hollywood and the media have no problem promoting the words of a man that they long viciously despised. Bush called Trump’s inauguration “some weird shit,” agreeing with Hillary Clinton.
Here’s Bush in his speech Thursday taking aim at Trump, who is not a white supremacist and who has hired numerous minorities and women in his administration.
Here’s Alyssa Milano, a C-list actress who previously tweeted that Steve Bannon should be fired from the White House because somebody allegedly arranged elves in a Christmas store she went to (in August) with Nazi salues:

Here’s a liberal pointing out the hypocrisy.
If you bolster Bush to make the point that Trump is bad, you’re a hack. Full stop.
