By being a president who has even less of a grasp on the English language than he does, Bush is reportedly reveling in what Trump does for his reputation by virtue of comparison.
According to The National Journal, Dubya has been seen smirking at the reports of Trump's White House dysfunction:
Bush is often heard to remark, unable to stifle his trademark smirk: 'Sorta makes me look pretty good, doesn't it?'
He's shaking his head like everyone else wondering why they can't get their act together.
He wants the guy to succeed but thinks a lot of his problems are self-inflicted.
Likely to suggest to people that he's not actually enjoying this precarious time for the republic, Bush did give a speech back in October about how dangerous Trump is (but without actually saying his name).
"Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seem more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication," Bush said. "Bigotry in any form is blasphemy against the American creed and it means the very identity of our nation depends on the passing of civic ideals to the next generation."
But yeah, everyone agrees with Georgie. While he may have eroded civil liberties and went to war under false pretenses, Trump is even worse.
