Co-hosts of ABC’s The View talked about remarked President George W. Bush made during a speech in Israel. Bush had suggested that Democrats including Barack Obama wanted to “appease” terrorists in the way that some politicians appeased Hitler.
Co-host Joy Behar mentioned the fact that it was George W. Bush’s grandfather, Prescott Bush, who was known to have ties to Nazi Germany.
Behar said, “It’s very interesting and ironic that George Bush Sr., [George W. Bush’s] grandfather, this one, the late — I don’t like to speak ill of the dead but in this case it’s fun. He was a united states senator, Prescott Bush. He was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany. This is his grandfather. He has no business talking to Jewish people when he’s got this right in his backyard, this guy.”
