While I disagreed strongly with W’s polices and administration I never really thought he was a bad person. We need more Republicans like W to empathize and try to listen and not lecture. BlackLivesMatter Peacefulprotest democracy

Now he wants YOU TO LISTEN! The Iraq war resulted in over 150,000 civilian deaths, over 4,400 US soldier deaths and over 30,000 US wounded soldiers. ‘No weapons of mass destruction’ was voiced by failed to listen. Your statement is hollow! GeraldoRivera greggutfeld

RT bourgeoisalien I remember thinking during the George W Bush years that we'll never have another president that stupid or that bad again, and now Democrats quote him like he's goddamned MLK.

George got his facts wrong again,, he died of heart failure brought on by drug abuse...

This man is as much to blame for this disaster !

I’m still anguished by the brutal deaths of all the people who died in Iraq.

Blah blah blah! U were worst than Obuma! So keep it to ur self liar! Weapons of mass destruction liar! He threatened my DAD!! Ur dad wasnt any good either! At least he quit when the quiting was good!

Okay, that's great, eight days in, he's ready to make a statement. That's leadership. Thanks Don Lemon.

Oh piss off...go drive your truck around your ranch to nowhere 🖕

Wish he had the same compassion to the Iraqi people, before deciding to go full war criminal.

Hahaha. War crimnal and murderer

in a positive manner. It's harder to do. It's way easier to give in to the anger but if we TRULY care like we say we do. Work on it work on seeing the positive and acting in that manner so it doesn't happen ever again

George Bush just wants to invest in more prisons to put the protesters in.

I speak to all kinds of people. Different races but I look at the positive side of all of them. We are not perfect no one is. Let's look at what's going on around us

Good for you George, good for you.

My grandmother use to say ' tell me who you hang around with and I'll tell you who you are'

We must stop this kind of atrocity on US soil! We must stop this kind of killing on US soil! We must stop this kind of murders on US soil! We must stop this domestic terrorism on US soil! We must stop Trump using military against civilians in US and the world!

it’s Bush who criticizes Floyd’s death while he’s the same one who worked for Sadam Hussein hanged in the charity hospital

He loves trumps doing

George Clooney Calls Racism a Pandemic in Essay About George FloydIn a powerful, new essay, George Clooney is showing his support for the black community and addresses anti-black racism in America: 'This is our pandemic. It infects all of us, and in 400 years we've yet to find a vaccine.' I thought he died. Huh There is no vaccine. Racism will ALWAYS be there much like rapist and pedophiles. But we MUST make sure racist are not in position of power like cops etc... Becoming a cop should be much harder and firing much easier. But unions stop that from happening. Under Obama, many blacks died, but you were silent. Today, Democrats, like Republicans, come to power through war. You all need power not for the sake of the people. No more America, you are all destroying it leading to civil wlane. You allow Russia and China to destroy America
