George W Bush and Bill Clinton both took apparent jabs at Donald Trump at a forum on Thursday night as they named the one characteristic a president needed above all others.

The two former presidents were speaking at a graduation ceremony for the Presidential Leadership Scholars program at the George W Bush Presidential Center in Dallas.

Bush replied ‘humility’ in answer to the question about presidential qualities, and added – ‘I think it’s really important to know what you don’t know and listen to people who do know what you don’t know.’

Clinton said anyone holding the highest office in the land needs to keep focused on their goals.

‘Realize it’s about the people, not you,’ he said. ‘A lot of these people who are real arrogant in office, they forget.

‘You don’t want to say, “God, look at all those people I beat”’.

The headline is not strictly true when you read the story. The Bush family is politically over as far as I am concerned. I am thankful that GWB did not succeed in getting his amnesty for illegals done.

LOL! Clinton and Obama are just towering monuments to humility, aren’t they?

Clinton was never humble, and GWB is a total f*cking moron.

Clinton and Obama both have a god complex. There was zero humility in either. Bush was a humble guy and got run over politically.

We’ve had humble roll-over crooks for president far too long, it’s about time we have one with backbone, but it’s still early. We’ll see.

Yet no nod to Obama’s continuing ‘shadow presidency’??? Where to start …

I don’t hear Trump using the word “I” much. He’s really a very humble man, and constantly talks about working for the people. He’s taking no salary, ok $1.

He’s doing all the heavy lifting himself, with no, absolutely no help from these misfits or his own party.

They need to remember the words of Bathhouse Barry when ridiculed “I Won!”

The establishment is so blind that they cannot see that President Trump shows more humility than Bush, Clinton and Obama put together. He just isn’t in your face with it.

I believe it was Rush that said “If you can back it up, it ain’t bragn’”

Though they never mentioned President Donald Trump by name, the audience understood they were implicitly criticizing their successor.

Sounds like editorial bias to me.

Trump should bite his lower lip while looking at his Shoes, just like Clinton did when he got caught.
