‘Some Weird Sh*t’ : George W. Bush Baffled by Trump’s Inauguration Speech
George W Bush wasn’t impressed by President Donald Trump’s inauguration address in January.
Former US President Bush appeared to be a bit confused by Trump’s words, telling people next to him: “That was some weird sh*t.” News of Bush’s controversial statement was first reported by NY Mag, who heard it from three people.
"That was some weird shit."
I never thought I would write this next sentence.
I agree with George W. Bush.

No one will ever confuse George W. Bush with George Bernard Shaw, but "Weird Shit" really is the best way to describe our current times.

Bush was sitting next to Bill and Hillary Clinton during the speech, neither of whom were likely too impressed with Trump, given his crushing victory over Clinton in the election.
A Bush spokesperson declined to comment on the report.
My love for this man grows by the day.
“That was some weird shit.”

Whenever historians write about Trump's inauguration, we *will* quote Pres. Bush's take: "That was some weird shit." https://t.co/R4lvtf9SJI
