Legacy of President George H.W. Bush: War Crimes, Racism
In the age of Donald Trump, it isn’t difficult for hagiographers of the late Bush Sr. to paint a picture of him as a great patriot and pragmatist; a president who governed with “class” and “integrity.”

Faith, Certainty and the Presidency of George W. Bush - The New York Times
The aide said that guys like me were "in what we call the reality-based community," which he defined as people who "believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality." I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off. "That's not the way the world really works anymore," he continued. "We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality -- judiciously, as you will -- we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."

Kim Kardashian West's GQ Cover Story: On Kanye and Taylor Swift, O.J.'s Bag, and Caitlyn Jenner | GQ
In the past, Kim has identified as a “liberal Republican,” fiscally conservative but socially progressive. She told me she now votes Democrat (“As I've grown up, I decided what I think is best for me instead of what my parents would have voted for”) and plans to vote for Hillary Clinton.
On-screen, we watch Kim's friend Malika: “I'm marrying Barack, I'm fucking Bill, and I'm killing George.”
“But I love George,” Kim says quietly on the video.
“OH…” Back in the conference room, every face blanches and Kim pauses the video.
“Wait, can I say that?” Kim asks, studying the expressions in the room. “I don't know if I should edit that out.”
“I think you should edit that out,” someone advises.
“With Kanye's history with George…,” Kim says, trailing off.
Solutions are offered. They could cut the president section entirely or remove just that line. “I love George, though,” Kim says sadly. “I just think he's cute. Like a cute little president.... And the [Bush] kids sent us a baby gift. Let me think about it.”

Jeb Bush v. Hillary Clinton: the Perfectly Illustrative Election - The Intercept
Having someone who is the brother of one former president and the son of another run against the wife of still another former president would be sweetly illustrative of all sorts of degraded and illusory aspects of American life, from meritocracy to class mobility. That one of those two families exploited its vast wealth to obtain political power, while the other exploited its political power to obtain vast wealth, makes it more illustrative still: of the virtually complete merger between political and economic power, of the fundamentally oligarchical framework that drives American political life.
