Shannon Bream asks if the left’s ‘sudden love’ for Bush 41 is ‘just a ruse’ to slam Trump. The response is overwhelming

The death of former President George H.W. Bush seems to have struck the left with a case of the feels as they have rolled out endless plaudits for the 41st president.

But many, like Fox News’ Shannon Bream, have speculated that liberals’ sudden love and obsession over Bush may be just a ruse to bash President Donald Trump.

Despite a unifying gesture by the Bush family, the left has disrespected their wishes to have no Trump-bashing at the former president’s funeral. The mainstream media found every opportunity to attack Trump over how he looked, how he sat during the service and how he greeted his predecessors who were all seated with him on the front row at  the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.

Newsbusters reported that “roughly six minutes and 34 seconds” after the end of the funeral services Thursday, CNN rolled into its attacks on Trump.

“And despite claiming otherwise, making the genuine and heartfelt tributes to a man of character and honor all about the current President’s supposed lack thereof,” Curtis Houck wrote.

CNN anchor Don Lemon, an ardent Trump-basher, smugly declared he would not have been able to shake hands with Trump at the funeral as former President Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama did.

Lemon denied being “petty and small,” telling colleague Chris Cuomo, “that’s real, brother. That’s real,” on Wednesday night, after saying he “can’t fake the funk” and admitting he is “not that big a person.”

Plenty of others criticized the left’s frothing at the mouth over Trump under the guise of praising Bush, and especially called out the unprofessional moves by CNN.

Meanwhile, Bream’s tweet and her question about the left using Bush’s “legacy as a tool to go after” Trump sparked overwhelming responses on Twitter.
