(PresidentialWire.com)- This week, former President George W. Bush has been on a “gaffetastic” roll reminiscent of Joe Biden’s.
Just one day after falling victim to a pair of Russian radio pranksters, ‘W’ was off pranking himself at a lecture in Dallas on Wednesday at the Bush Center, which is on the campus of Southern Methodist University.
We are all well aware of George W. Bush’s past in Iraq, but while the former ‘Republican’ President was shamelessly campaigning for US support of Ukraine, he made a slip of the tongue and accidentally referred to the Eastern European nation of Ukraine as Iraq.
When President Bush was trying to drag Putin for being a bloodthirsty dictator who was overstepping his boundaries, he made the Freudian slip and said something embarrassing.
“In contrast to Ukraine, Russian elections are rigged. Political opponents are imprisoned or otherwise eliminated for participating in the Electoral process. The result is an absence of checks and balances in Russia and the decision of one man to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq.”
“I mean, of Ukraine,” Bush added, quickly corrected himself.
It’s funny that Bush would bring up political opponents being suppressed, considering what’s been going on in the United States recently – to say nothing of what’s happening in Ukraine, where it’s practically open season on Zelensky’s political opponents.
The unfortunate reality is that what Bush intended to say was even more damaging than his slip-up. It’s the second time in a week that he’s compared Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to a modern-day Winston Churchill, and he’s been spreading panic about the war with all the nuance of a blue-haired opinion columnist for the New York Times.
It should come as no surprise that this neoconservative Warhawk has expressed his complete backing for the war machine in Ukraine.
