President and First Lady HW Bush Both Admitted to The Hospital…

According to an updated statement from the 41st president’s office that spokesman Jim McGrath posted on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon, Bush was admitted to the intensive care unit at the hospital “to address an acute respiratory problem stemming from pneumonia.”

george-hw-bush-statementThe statement also said that Barbara Bush, 91, was admitted to the same hospital Wednesday morning “as a precaution after experiencing fatigue and coughing.”

george-and-barbara-bushBush is the oldest living former U.S. president. In 2015, he spent a week in a Maine hospital after falling and breaking a bone in his neck. He suffers from a form of Parkinson’s disease and uses a wheelchair to get around.

Despite the loss of mobility, Bush celebrated his 90th birthday by making a tandem parachute jump in Kennebunkport, Maine. Last summer, Bush led a group of 40 wounded warriors on a fishing trip at the helm of his speedboat, three days after his 92nd birthday celebration.

It had been previously announced that Bush and his wife were not expected attend the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th president because of health reasons.  (media link)

            bolsh, you may be right. We’ll have to watch the news and see. My first thought upon reading the headline here? Leave it to the devil to help GHW die on inauguration day and take all the glory out of what little positive coverage the media may give the POTUS over the coming few days. It would also keep the worlds attention focused on the whole funeral business and off of the new admin’s arrival. Just a thought. I can’t read the mind of the evil one (and don’t want to) but it would be a typical move for him/it.

            The history re-writers @ MSNBC last night were running clips of Trump talking about trade and jobs along with video of Bill Clinton on his 1st Prez campaign, wailing about corporations sending jobs out of the country….Suggesting that Trump “stole” the idea from Bill Clinton…..
            Good reminder for all of us to keep the facts fresh in our minds—“Bill Clinton? Who pushed NAFTA through?” “Bill Clinton? Who ended the Glass-Steagall Act in 1999 (probably for a lot of money) that allowed Wall Street banks and brokerage houses to merge?” (concentrating financial power and once again incenting banks to take on too much risk)
            [PS–Did anybody else notice that it only took Wall Street 9 years to generate another crash after Glass-Steagall was repealed?]

      Bush Sr. has all the markers of self funding black hat CIA. Council on Foreign Affairs seems to be their shriveled soul puppet master. It is time to destroy it , burn it and scatter the ashes. My only worry then is encapsulated in horror movie references such as ‘Return of Chuckie’ or ‘Halloween’ series, where it does not stay gone.

      The compass was lost when Globalism was embraced. Then the soul was lost. Then evil took over, and now evil is all that is left.

      Bush won’t go because it puts a mirror in front of him as to what he lost a long time ago and can’t get back. But I think he is stuck in denial that Globalism is an evil failed experiment with untold human cost.

    Bush Sr has been admitted to the hospital several times over the last few years and I suppose it was a little over a year ago when she was admitted for I believe it was some sort of respiratory issue. I agree that it would have been very risky for 41 to have made the trip at his age and the same for her as well. It’s of course not unusual at any age for someone to come down with a cold and the other to catch it, but at their age, it can be life threatening.

      I have Parkinson’s and have difficulty swallowing and also came down with bronchial pneumonia, so the last 3 weeks I’ve experienced pretty much what news reports are saying abt the Bushes. It is a serious ailment, life threatening. Respiratory ailments are rampant this winter and a few cases of TB are being discovered as people present with similar symptoms. Word to the wise, no matter your age, if you notice shortness of breath, have tightness in your chest or congestion, get treatment before it gets a hold on you. Recovery is slow, tiring frustrating.

    I decided to post here because I have wanted to tell my fellow Treepers something I feel is important…something that I feel you would want to know.

    First, I have been on this website since last March totally dedicated to doing anything I could to support PE Donald Trump in his campaign to win through donations, writing (my profession), research, energy, etc. I love PE Donald Trump and think he will be the best President of The United States that has ever been to date.

    Secondly, I am a children’s book author for 26 years and had been contacted by First Lady Barbara Bush in 1991 by a call from the White House in regards to the work I had done for children. I have a hand-written note from her from Kennebunkport, Me.

    I was extremely disappointed in their treatment of PE Donald Trump. I feel as many of you do, but I read PE Donald Trump’s tweet to them and he was so gracious in what he said to them. So if he can say that to them after the campaign’s nastiness towards him, I will join him also in wishing them well.

    Thirdly, I researched positive children’s books for PE Donald Trump and I found none to date or that I know about only demeaning parodies written by the ones that love to poke fun, etc.

    One day I saw a suggestion on The Conservative Treehouse for someone to write a children’s book for PE Trump. I had already begun the process so was glad to see that someone noticed the need for children to have a positive, patriotic children’s book about a true American Patriot, our 45th President.

    Lastly, I have written this book for PE Trump with great love and affection for everything he is to all of us. I wanted to do a Commemorative First Edition for the people at The Conservative Treehouse. I will give you the website address so that you can email me if you are interested and I will put you on the list for the Commemorative Edition.

    I have a publisher and the book is going to the printer within the next week. You can read more about everything on the website to include “The Lemonade Stand” Blog which I know Treepers will like and appreciate.

    At the publisher’s suggestion, I wrote “Mr. Trump Is My President!” using part my name and part pseudonym as I never have written anything for children before in the political arena and I have a large volume of other work out that is not political at all.

    Please visit http://www.mrtrumpismypresident.com if you are interested in this one-of-a-kind journey of PE Trump during his campaign to his winning the election and going to the White House. You won’t be able to order the book yet as the order page has not been activated. However, for people here at CTH, I wanted to share with you first so that you know there is a positive, patriotic children’s book soon to be available for President Donald Trump.

    Please share so we can get these books into the hands of our children. The book includes PE Trump’s favorite quotes and a glossary of his favorite sayings so it could be considered educational too.
