According to a new book that takes a look at the presidencies of both George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, neither ex-President has much to good to say about the current occupant of the White House, reports the New York Times.
In this endearing, illuminating work, presidential historian Mark K. Updegrove tracks the two Bush presidents from their formative years through their post-presidencies and the failed presidential candidacy of Jeb Bush, derailing the Bush presidential dynasty. "And I'm not too excited about him being [our] leader".
Bush Sr. famously skipped Trump's inauguration, citing a health reason and admitted that he voted for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, a Democrat, in the 2016 presidential election.
George H.W. Bush also reportedly called Trump a "blowhard".
Mark Updegrove, the author of the book, talked to both Bushes on the record and they made it clear a year ago they were none too happy about the former reality television star becoming president.

It really was no secret that the Bushes aren't really big fans of President Donald Trump. During Trump's campaign, Bush said he felt Trump had "a certain ego" and felt he'd need to have "humility" in order to unite the country.
Bush told Updegrove that he worries that he may be the last Republican to hold the office of the presidency.
Trump stood for rudeness, global isolationism and weak leadership in the eyes of the Bushes, according to Updegrove - reservations echoed by many establishment Republicans.
