Alabama U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions is not happy with former President George H.W. Bush‘s decision to support Hillary Clinton for president over Republican nominee Donald Trump, and he’s letting everyone know.
In an interview with the DC-based Washington Examiner, Sessions went on record saying the Bush family “should remember the loyalty they were given by millions of Americans” as he expressed his frustration with the senior Bush’s decision.
“I think they’re not thinking clearly enough about this,” Sessions told the Examiner. “They’re not … appreciating half the American people, virtually, that have been supportive of Republicans. A lot of them preferred somebody other than Bush candidates, but they rallied around them when it came to Nov. 1 So I would hope that we see more rallying.”
Sessions was the first senator to back Trump’s White House bid in February this year.
Session did clarify that he’s not heard the endorsement from H.W. himself but rather from Democrat Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend. Townsend, a former Maryland Lt. Gov. is daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy.
“Well, you never know,” Sessions elaborated. “That’s just a Democrat reporting what Mr. Bush said. I haven’t heard him say anything.”
