Despite remaining quiet during the Zika, Ebola and H1N2 pandemics that occurred while Barack Hussein Obama was in office, former President George W. Bush felt it appropriate to release a grandiose speech this week about the coronavirus pandemic.

It wasn’t his first time speaking out since President Donald Trump took office.

In the three-minute-long speech shared to Twitter and other platforms, the former president appropriated language from President Donald Trump to speak about how an “invisible enemy” is threatening “the elderly and vulnerable among us” and further threatening “broader damage, harm to our sense of safety, security and community.”

He was correct.

Listen to the whole speech below:

He added that the United States needs unity, kindness and empathy at a time like this.

“Even at an appropriate social distance, we can find ways to be present in the lives of others, to ease their anxiety and share their burdens. … [L]et’s remember that the suffering we experience as a nation does not fall evenly,” he said.

“In the days to come, it will be especially important to care in practical ways for the elderly, the ill and the unemployed. Finally, let us remember how small our differences are in the face of this shared threat. In the final analysis, we are not partisan combatants, we are human beings, equally vulnerable and equally wonderful in the sight of God. We rise or fall together and we are determined to rise. God bless you all.”

He was correct again, though he forgot to mention business owners, many of whom are being driven into debt and bankruptcy because of the Democrat-supported lockdowns that have been used to force millions of Americans to remain trapped at home.

And in calling for unity, kindness and empathy, he apparently didn’t consider it worth urging left-wingers stop using terms like “Nazi” and “white supremacist” to smear the business owners and unemployed workers who’ve been protesting these lockdowns.

Instead Bush kept his message so seemingly non-partisan that it earned widespread praise and adoration from hardcore left-wingers.

Look:

Some of these Democrats have tweeted #IBelieveJoeBiden in recent days. Others have trashed the lockdown protesters, thus making it clear that their brand of so-called “compassion” only extends to some people.

As for conservatives, many responded to the former president’s speech by wondering aloud where the hell he was as Obama spent eight long years shoving a radically left-wing “progressive” agenda down the American people’s throats.

And over on Fox News, “Fox & Friends” host Pete Hegseth said that while he appreciates the message of unity and putting partisanship aside, he doesn’t understand why Bush remained quiet as Democrats held partisan impeachment proceedings against the president earlier this year.

Others have echoed this same sentiment and noted further that Bush also stayed silent during the Democrats’ Russian collusion delusion hoax.

Look:

It seems like the only time Bush speaks up is to trash the sitting president, talk down to conservatives or flirt with former first lady Michelle Obama.

His speech came only days after it was learned that Obama-era FBI officials had unethically coerced a four-star general into a perjury trap. Predictably, Bush never said anything about that either …
