    Bush says Trump 'makes me look pretty good' by comparison: report

    Former President George W. Bush often jokes that President Trump's administration makes his own former White House team look "pretty good," according to a Republican source.

    The former Republican president regularly knocks the current administration, a source close to the Trump administration told National Journal, unable to understand why the White House often seems to be in chaos.

    "Bush is often heard to remark, unable to stifle his trademark smirk: 'Sorta makes me look pretty good, doesn't it?' " the Journal reported.

    "He's shaking his head like everyone else wondering why they can't get their act together," the source added. "He wants the guy to succeed but thinks a lot of his problems are self-inflicted."

    Y'know -- if Trump went to full scale 'shock and awe' war with North Korea. That's when the two would be comparable in terms of awful evilness.

    Literally nobody misses Bush except a few cosmopolitan neoconservatives.

    Reminds me of when the media here in the UK digs up Tony Blair (and bloody John Major recently pffft... yawn) to offer some comment on current affairs like anyone could ever want to know what he had to say. If you've got to dig these guys up to make a point you're in trouble and it will backfire.

    I want to say he's wrong, except public opinion of him (George W Bush) has made a significant improvement since Trump entered the world of politics.. not just in the US, but around the world. I can't really make since of it, because Bush was substantially worse than Trump has been as president. Trump hasn't passed any policy as president that is significantly bad, the worse thing he's done policy wise is increase the deficit by a substantial margin, but even in that regards, Bush was far worse.

    Bush = going from a balanced budget to a $1.4 trillion deficit
    Trump = going from a $500 billion deficit to a projected $900 deficit

    The two don't really compare
