At least W wasn't fucking insane.
(You can watch the entire speech here. And you can find an annotated transcript here.)
While I appreciate Bush and Obama carefully criticizing the Trump administration without actually going after him by name, I really think that they need to amp it up.
IF Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, and George H. Bush all came out and stated emphatically that Donald Trump is destroying this country and needs to be removed from office that might really move that process forward.
I know that former presidents are supposed to treat their successors with deference, but let's face it this is an entirely different situation.
It is time to stop playing it safe, and to REALLY start playing hardball for the sake of this country's future.
