Jeb Bush, son of the late former President George H.W. Bush, told the Wall Street Journal Tuesday that his family was celebrating the legacy of his father and praised the Trumps for being “gracious.” . . .
“What people want to talk about is: Well why isn’t the president giving the eulogy? And it’s because we have a unique circumstance here,” he explained. “My brother was president. It’s like, I’m sorry. First dibs, as we used to say. I don’t know how to explain it other than that.” . . .
Bush described his father as “the most generous, kind person you’d ever meet,” and said he hoped his father’s “kindler, gentler” approach would prevail over the more combative style of politics.
“My dad will be surrounded by friends inside the National Cathedral and many that couldn’t get in. The guy has built a network that is pretty amazing,” he said. “People want to share their love for him, and it’s just a great time to be his son.”
“This is a time to celebrate George H.W. Bush, not to grieve his loss, and that’s what we’re doing as a family right now,” he emphasized. (Read more from “Jeb Bush Says It’s a Time to ‘Celebrate’ His Father and the Trump Family Has Been ‘Gracious'” HERE)
