This is a good article that links how GWB gave us Trump and why we should resist the revisionist history of GWB. We all fall for it. Even I do when comparing the two men. Yes Trump is worse but we need to resist normalizing Bush’s behavior as president and his rehab which makes him seem “ok” or as “not much different from Obama”.

We as humans do like the warm glow of memories of the past. But we also have to remember the bad and Bush was a bad president for the economy, environment, foreign policy etc. Just because Trump is far worse does not elevate Bush to being a good president.

This article explains why better then I can.
