I cannot believe George W. Bush is being rehabilitated now and is often recalled warmly (and mostly by “liberals,” too). He was a terrible president, far worse than Trump, and far more destructive to America and to the world.
My guess is this is happening because Bush didn’t actually seem to hate gay people and women and this is what matters to modern “liberals,” not massive pointless wars that kill millions and reduce the American quality of life and turn the whole country into an inescapable surveillance state.
I really despise what the so-called left has become. Just utterly useless wankers more concerned with fake sex trafficking and pronouns than making the world better anywhere.
