Analysis: George P. Bush has just learned a very important lesson about Donald Trump




To do so, George P. Bush kissed Trump in the most flattering and embarrassing way possible.

Ahead of the announcement of his candidacy, George P. he tweeted a photo of him on his cell phone with this text: “It’s great to talk to President Trump about the future of Texas and how we keep fighting to put the United States first. I appreciate the words of encouragement and support.”
And, in the ad itself, George P.’s supporters were handing out drink sleeves showing a drawing of him and Trump with a 2019 quote from the former president who to read: “This is the only Bush I like. This is the Bush who got it right. I like it.” (George P. avalat Trump in the 2020 race, calling him “the only one between America and socialism.”
George P. playing the boy was particularly irritating, as Trump had rescued his father, Jeb Bush, several times during the 2016 campaign. ‘Iraq, among other things. And he retweeted a Twitter user who claimed that Jeb Bush “He has liked Mexican illegals because of his wife. “(Jeb’s wife and George P.’s mother, Columba, came to the United States legally).

Why did George P. bend his knee toward Trump? Because he had calculated that if Trump endorsed Paxton (or made him talk badly), his chances of winning a Republican primary in Texas would decrease. Drastically.

Which brings me to Monday night and this Trump statement:

“Attorney General Ken Paxton has been bravely at the forefront of the fight for Texas and America against the vicious and very dangerous Democrats of the radical left, and against the foolish and carefree RINOs who are destroying our country … grab a PATRIOT like Ken Paxton to advance America’s policies to make America great again.Ken has my full and total approval for another term as Texas Attorney General.He is a true Texan who will keep Texas safe and he will never let you down! “

So yes.

Before we go any further, it’s probably worth noting two key facts about Paxton:

1. He was the leader of the effort failed get Supreme Court to vote in key swing states due to non-existent election fraud in 2020 elections
2. At the end of 2020, seven of its main assistants he accused him of bribery and abuse of office. Paxton has denied the charges, saying “they have been made to prevent an ongoing investigation into criminal offenses by public officials, including employees of this office.” Paxton has been too under indictment since 2015 for securities fraud.
After Trump supported Paxton, George P. has tweeted about this:

“I stand for the Attorney General’s Office because the Texans deserve the integrity and honesty of the office of the highest law enforcement officer in Texas. The Texans deserve a candidate without a laundry list of existing criminal charges and potentials “.

The lesson here for Bush — and for any other Republican trying to favor the former president — is simple: Trump only cares about Trump and what he perceives is good for Trump.

Paxton filed the lawsuit to try to annul the election results. That’s the most important thing for Trump, at least right now. So the whole Bush game with Trump, at the expense, well, of his entire extended family, doesn’t matter.

Trump demands total loyalty from everyone. But it does not promise any change. Their loyalty is totally transactional. Do something good for him, he will say something nice about you. But if someone does something even more enjoyable (according to their assessment) for him, he will throw you in a second for him.

George P. learned that lesson Monday night. It will not be the last.
