President Trump went on the attack after former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said he wishes “every day for a George Bush again.” “He and I had our differences, but no one ever questioned his patriotism. Our battles were strictly political battles,” Reid, who was a searing critic of Bush and his administration, said. “There’s no question in my mind that George Bush would be Babe Ruth in this league that he’s in with Donald Trump in the league. Donald Trump wouldn't make the team.” Trump responded to the remark early Monday morning with a tweet claiming Reid was thrown out of the Senate—even though he retired.
“Former Senator Harry Reid (he got thrown out) is working hard to put a good spin on his failed career,” Trump tweeted. “He led through lies and deception, only to be replaced by another beauty, Cryin’ Chuck Schumer. Some things just never change!” The former Nevada senator was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year, usually a fatal diagnosis, but is now in remission following chemotherapy. Reid has been an outspoken critic of the president since the election. Reid told CNN that he is especially proud of using the word “amoral” to describe Trump because it resulted in a crush of people googling the word’s definition.
