The names Bush and Cheney have been inextricably linked for two decades, but one of the Bush family members is breaking the trend.
George P. Bush, the Texas Land Commissioner and son of Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL), attempted to attack Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) after she was ousted from the Republican House leadership on Wednesday.
"Republicans deserve leadership that represents the views of their constituents, not their own personal vendettas. We need leaders in Congress that stand up for conservative Republican ideology, and Liz Cheney is not that leader," he tweeted.
He included a meme talking about "reigning fire on the President," instead of writing raining.
It was an ironic typo given that the Bush family was once considered political royalty in Texas and in the Republican Party with the reign of two Bush presidents and the attempt of another.
It was something that brought laughter and anger in response. See them below:
Apparently this young Bush does not know the difference between 'reigning' and 'raining'. https://t.co/eoEUWn6408— Social utilitarian--when is government "too big" ? (@Social utilitarian--when is government "too big" ?) 1620874204.0
@georgepbush reigning? Yeah - you're a Bush alright.— Don (@Don)1620875294.0
@HeathMayo Barbara Bush would be mortified, not only by the thought but by the English. "Reigning" fire?— Ed Nickinson (@Ed Nickinson)1620873577.0
If Liz Cheney were actually “reigning fire” on Trump, that would make her an elemental spirit from a fantasy novel.… https://t.co/Tm24u64Nkd— Eric Kleefeld (@Eric Kleefeld) 1620870486.0

@mbaram @georgepbush If he can't see the con now, I doubt that a warning years ago would have helped— 🏒David⚽️ (@🏒David⚽️) 1620876507.0
@georgepbush Being a Bush, you can afford a dictionary. It's "raining" not reigning— Linda Bowser@🏠🇨🇦😷 (@Linda Bowser@🏠🇨🇦😷)1620876834.0
