George P. Bush, Jeb Bush’s Latino Son, Wants To Be Governor, So He’s Endorsing Trump

Poor ¡Jeb!

During the seemingly never ending Republican presidential primary, Donald Trump made it a point to humiliate Jeb Bush in every way imaginable. Trump bashed Jeb so badly that the Bush family — including both Presidents George H.W. and George W. Bush — skipped the Republican National Convention altogether. With all this bad blood between the Bushes and Trump, you’d think that George Prescott Bush, Jeb’s oldest son who also happens to be Latino, would side with his family and refuse to support Trump. You’d be wrong.

On Saturday, George P. Bush, told a room of Texas Republican activists that he’s backing the GOP frontrunner. “From Team Bush, it’s a bitter pill to swallow, but you know what? You get back up and you help the man that won, and you make sure that we stop Hillary Clinton,” the younger, Latino Bush told the cheering crowd.

But why would George P. Bush go against his family like that?

Here’s the thing you have to know about George P. Bush: He’s a politician who more than likely has high aspirations. For years, we’ve been hearing inklings that boy George is both the future of the Bush family and Republican Party. In all likelihood, GPB is trying to follow in the footsteps of his dad and uncle, the former governors of Florida and Texas, respectively. Given that he’s currently serving as Texas Land Commissioner, it’s more likely that he’ll make his gubernatorial run in Texas.

Because this is Texas we’re talking about, and because he’s a Republican, the younger Bush has to appeal to extreme conservative voters, which is basically the same thing as Donald Trump supporters. Our best bet is that he doesn’t want Trump supporters checking their receipts when GPB runs and finding out that he didn’t back their man.

Speaking of checking the receipts…

One of the reasons GPB has been hailed as the future of conservatism is because he’s Latino. (His mom is a naturalized Mexican citizen.) The future of Texas will be Latino, a fact that Republicans are aware of. So, while they’re taking great measures to make it really hard for Latinos to vote RIGHT NOW, they’ll need a candidate of their own who can appeal to the Latinos DOWN THE LINE.

GPB knows the importance of the Latino vote. Here he is denouncing some straight up racist comments made by a Republican during the last gubernatorial election:

“If we’re going to be successful and be considered credible in the Hispanic community, we’ve got to denounce some of the ignorant statements that are made about Hispanics and the contributions we make, whether it’s to the military, our nation’s economy or to the history of Texas.”

That quote is from 2014, but could very well apply to Trump’s blatant appeal to racists. So why isn’t he denouncing him? Oh, right. The governorship.

A Ted Cruz Piñata Exists And People Want One So Bad

A Ted Cruz Piñata Exists And People Want One So Bad

Sen. Ted Cruz has reached peak infamy with a piñata in his honor. People have been turned into piñatas over the years for both good and bad reasons. The Cruz piñata serves as a reminder of the senator’s attempt to flee the brutal Texas winter crisis.

A Texas party store is selling piñatas of Sen. Ted Cruz and people are into it.

Piñatas are always the centerpiece of a fun party and they are even more exciting when they are topical. One party shop in Texas is riding on the wave of local and national news criticizing Sen. Cruz to cash in.

Last week Sen. Cruz was caught boarding a United flight to Cancún, Mexico to escape the winter storm devastating Texas. As millions of Texans survived without water and power, the Cruz family booked a Mexican getaway to warmer weather and reliable electricity.

At first, Sen. Cruz tried to blame his daughters for fleeing Texas as his constituents suffered from the weather. He soon changed his story and claimed that he realized he had made a mistake as soon as he sat down on the plane waiting to depart from Houston.

Finally, after days of speculation, someone came forward and leaked text messages from Sen. Cruz’s wife, Heidi. Turns out, according to the texts, that the Cruz family was actively planning a vacation to avoid the snowstorm. According to the texts, the Cruz family was trying to convince neighbors and friends to join them so they can get out of their freezing house. The criticism amplified when it was reported that the Cruz family left the family dog behind as they fled to Mexico.

People are eager to get their hands on a Sen. Cruz piñata.

Families have been in quarantine for almost a year and they are hitting a wall. Now that the weather is starting to warm up, it is no surprise that people would want to have something to do together outdoors. Seems that a lot of people would like a piñata party to celebrate the bad weather slowly moving out.

There are even some people asking for different people made as piñatas.

You never know unless you ask, right? Never hurts to try to make your own request to better your birthday. It seems that the party store is able to make various different piñatas. The party store made a piñata after Sen. Bernie Sanders’ famous mitten moment at President Biden’s inauguration.

A Woman Saves A Dog During The Texas Snow Storm Using Tortillas

Texas recently dealt with one of the worst winter storms in its history. Millions were left without water and power for days and Sen. Ted Cruz was caught up in a scandal after being caught going on a Mexican vacation. One pup is catching everyone’s attention after being rescued thanks to tortillas.

One lucky dog in San Antonio was saved from the cold by a caring woman with tortillas.

Kristina Salinas-Labrador was out buying tortillas for her family on Thursday when she spotted a dog in the freezing cold in San Antonio, Texas. Instead of driving by, Kristin stopped her car and spent 30 minutes luring the dog to the warmth of her car using tortillas. Kristin told the WOAI reporter that he stopped to save the dog’s life because he was skinny and could likely die from the cold weather that crippled much of Texas.

According to her interview with WOAI, Kristin saved the dog because she felt like helping during the hard times Texans are facing.

“Dogs, they don’t know what’s going on; cats, pets, they don’t know what’s going on,” Kristin told the reporter. “So, we try to help them out – one dog at a time. I’m hoping the next person will stop, too, and help the different strays.”

This isn’t the first time that Kristin or her wife have picked up a stray animal.

Nicole Salinas-Labrador, Kristin’s wife, told NBC News that the dog’s name is now Taco. Nicole admitted that she and her wife often stop for stray dogs and cats when they see them while out and about. Nicole joked that her wife used her “Mexican ways” to get the dog in the car, according to NBC News.

The couple is taking care of Taco until they can find a forever home for the sweet pup.

“Hello everyone! Thank you for sharing and for your interest! He was scanned for chip and he doesn’t have one. And no one has still claimed him,” Nicole wrote in a comment under the Facebook post. “He is with me and my family for now. He is getting fully vetted today and making sure he is in perfect health. Anyone that is interested in adopting him feel free to PM me. This process will def take some time.. I do extensive background checks to make sure any stray that is in my care goes to the absolute best forever home. Any questions feel free to message me.”
