Hundreds of former Bush officials launch super PAC to support Biden: report

Published

on

On Wednesday, Reuters reported that hundreds of former members of the George W. Bush administration have formed a super PAC to support former Vice President Joe Biden against President Donald Trump.

“The officials, who include Cabinet secretaries and other senior people in the Bush administration, have formed a political action committee – 43 Alumni for Biden – to support the former vice president in his Nov. 3 race, three organizers of the group told Reuters. Bush was the country’s 43rd president,” reported Tim Reid. “The Super PAC will launch on Wednesday with a website and Facebook page, they said. It plans to release ‘testimonial videos’ praising Biden from high-profile Republicans and will hold get-out-the-vote efforts in the most competitive states.”

“We know what is normal and what is abnormal, and what we are seeing is highly abnormal,” said Jennifer Milliken, a former General Services Administration official and 2004 Bush campaign staffer. “The president is a danger.”

Reports have indicated that Bush himself does not plan to support Trump for re-election.

Trump already faces opposition from groups founded by veteran Republican strategists, the most famous of whom is The Lincoln Project, which has produced a series of viral anti-Trump ads designed to get under the president’s skin. Among the founders are former Florida GOP strategist Rick Wilson, and George Conway, a conservative lawyer married to the president’s White House counselor.

But female reporters, in particular, seem to rattle Trump, as journalist Jack Shafer argues in an op-ed published in Politico this week.

Shafer describes a pattern, explaining, “It starts with a reporter, usually a female reporter, asking President Donald Trump hard, tenacious questions at a news conference. Trump’s jaw seizes up, rattled and dumbfounded by the questions that he can’t or won’t answer. He abruptly ends the presser by saying, ‘Thank you very much’ and stalking out of the room.”

‘Silence is complicity’: GOP condemned for doing nothing as Trump openly touts sabotage of postal service

Published

"Donald Trump knows that if the people are heard in November, he and Republicans up and down the ballot will lose," said Sen. Elizabeth Warren. "This is what we're up against—and this is why we have to fight back with all we've got."

Voting rights advocates on Thursday took aim at Republicans in Congress for remaining silent in the face of President Donald Trump's open admission that he is blocking funding for the U.S. Postal Service with the express purpose of stopping an expansion of mail-in ballot access ahead of the November elections.
