The words “Bush” and “Deep State” have been practically interchangeable ever since the days when George H.W. Bush ran the CIA for Ronald Reagan. Back in the day, they used it to set up a private shadow army, commanded by Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North. The dynasty got a little sidetracked after W. moved out of the White House. In 2016 Jeb’s crippled run for the presidency was more like a crawl. The family will just have to get over the fact that Jeb’s son, George P. Bush, isn’t the son of a turtle conservatives assume he is. “GP” is actually a deplorable Trump supporter.
Deep State defector
George P. Bush is begging conservatives for asylum. He’s broken ties with the Deep State dynasty to proudly support Once and Future President Donald Trump.
“It’s my name on the ballot. I’m my own man. When I talk about my record, whether it’s as land commissioner or my support of Trump, you know, I just stick to the facts.” He’s going to have an uncomfortable time at the dinner table this Thanksgiving.
GP is proud to be a flaming “deplorable.” The fact is, he declares “that in 2016 I was one of the first statewide-elected officials to come out and support him.” He hand carried “a million and a half in support of Republican candidates with him at the top of the ticket.”
He never looked back and can’t wait to do it again. The Deep State won’t admit it but “it was a high watermark for Republican Party politics in the state of Texas.”
TRUMP AND BUSH FAMILY:
At yesterday event in Texas, @realDonaldTrump called Texas Land Commissioner @georgepbush , Jeb's son, on stage: "He is the only Bush who likes me. … Truly, this is the Bush who got it right … I like him. I like him. He's going far. He's going places." pic.twitter.com/JSmxaeBb2Z

He was just as supportive in 2020. Then, GP “boldly declared that Trump was the only thing standing between our country, the American people and socialism. And lo and behold, I’ve turned out to be correct.”
The Deep State keeps digging us into a bigger hole of debt. The young Bush buccaneer is furious that Joe Biden plans “over 30 trillion in total spending” with six trillion of that “in just next year’s annual budget.”
Traitor in the AG office
One of the things that George P. Bush is especially unhappy about is the attorney general in his home state of Texas. They’re stuck with Ken Paxton, who “has been under indictment on securities fraud charges since 2015.”
He also happens to be under investigation by the FBI “over allegations from former senior aides that he abused his office to help a wealthy donor.” They’ll clear him of it though because helping the Deep State is never considered a crime.
Paxton has denied wrongdoing in both cases but Bush doesn’t like him anyway. “We need an attorney general stacking up mugshots of hardened criminals, not an attorney general that’s stacking up mugshots of himself.” The Deep State can go fly a kite.
No matter what the rest of the family say, to George P. Bush, Trump is the “center of the Republican Party.” Whether they like it or not. “When you look at my policies, I’m all about America first.”
GP isn’t worried about being disowned over it. “I think we’re just like any American family and we have our differences of opinion, whether it’s with respect to President Trump, whether it’s with respect to hot button issues of the day.”
He’s just not drinking the Deep State Kool-Aid. “I just have my own vision, my own plan, my own track record here in Texas. I support him and we need to carry on that legacy. Capture the lightning that he brought to the Republican Party so that we can help all of our fellow Republicans down ballot.”
