Former President George Bush has been riding along on a press tour wave with the release of his new book.
It’s all a part of his attempt to gain some popularity among mainstream liberal media outlets.
And he’s wasted no opportunity to offer his opinion on a plethora of hot-button political topics since his absence from office — from ex-President Donald Trump Republicans to the border crisis.
Most recently, Bush has revealed who he voted for in the 2020 general election.
It wasn’t President Joe Biden.
But it wasn’t Trump either.
He told People magazine in an exclusive interview that it was his former Secretary of State — Condoleeza Rice — that he voted for. He wrote her name in, according to the former president.
“She knows it,” he said. “But she told me she would refuse to accept the office.”[Sponsored] “90-Year-Old Mitochondria Becoming 30-Years Old”
Rice had been floated as a potential running mate for Biden leading up to the election, and Biden was reported to have been building a coalition of both Democrats and establishment, “Never Trump” Republicans.
Perhaps it’s no surprise that Bush didn’t vote for Trump or Biden.
Bush and Trump have a history of animosity. Bush’s younger brother, Jeb Bush, took on the former president in their fight for the 2016 GOP nomination in 2016, and Bush has repeatedly condemned “Trumpism.”
It’s no secret that there’s bad blood between the two — and Bush is digging in for a long fight.

“It’s not exactly my vision,” said Bush.
Bush’s new book, Out of Many, One, is a book of portraits highlighting the stories of American immigrants.
