Everyone thought Joe Biden’s gaffes were revealing, but this accidental admission from George W. Bush really takes the cake.
For whatever reason, maybe because he’s a former President, organizations still invite George W. Bush to speak at their events. If not, he would probably be languishing in obscurity somewhere given the fact he was such an unpopular, ineffective, and frankly criminal commander in chief.
Under his administration, Islamic terrorists successfully hijacked multiple planes only to fly them into the World Trade Center buildings. This event changed the course of history forever.
Bush went on to launch a massively unsuccessful and legally questionable war in the Middle East that last for two decades and costs the American taxpayers trillions upon trillions of dollars. Not to mention the massive loss of American lives and lives of innocent civilians in the region.
On Wednesday, George W. Bush held a talk in Dallas, Texas where he condemned Vladimir Putin and the war in Ukraine. He did what most RINOs (and Democrats) do: He stressed the importance of global democracy as justification for America’s involvement in foreign military conflicts.
While Bush certainly had a reason to launch a war in the Middle East given the terrorist attack on U.S. soil, the unnecessary continuation of that war was justified by a need for global democracy and nation-building — exactly as what’s happening in Ukraine today.
During his talk, the former President committed a Freudian slip that was so revealing it shocked the entire world.
Speaking in Dallas this afternoon, former President George. W Bush made a significant verbal slip-up while discussing the war in Ukraine.

Like Biden, the former President laughed it off, chalking it up to his age. However, this slip-up might possibly be the most honest moment in the history of politics.
Bush’s slip rightfully received immense backlash from people on both sides of the aisle.
"I'm not laughing & I am guessing nor are the families of the 1000s of American troops & the 100s of 1000s of Iraqis who died in that war."

If you were George W. Bush, you think you’d just steer clear of giving any speech about one man launching a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion. https://t.co/8zdH0ogOAy

George W. Bush just admitted to being a war criminal of the likes of Vladimir Putin, then laughed.

Took 20 years for George W. Bush to finally confess.

The age-old adage rings true more than ever: When someone reveals who they are, believe them.
We should apply this saying to Bush’s slip-up as it reveals the sinister truth behind D.C. politics and the swamp monsters who enact these policies.
Lest we forget, America First lawmakers are the ONLY anti-war voices within the federal government.
