The defections from the Republican Party continue to grow by the day. Another member of the GOP’s most influential family, Barbara Bush Pierce, daughter of former President George W. Bush, showed her support for the Democratic nominee by attending a Clinton fundraiser in Paris.
She took several photos with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s right-hand woman and longtime aide, Huma Abedin, tagging #ImWithHer in a social media post before later removing it.
Barbara Bush’s defection from the Republican nominee to Clinton is joined by her mother, Laura Bush, her grandfather, George H.W. Bush, and her grandmother, Barbara Bush, who famously wondered how any woman could vote for such a blatant misogynist. Her father George Bush and uncle Jeb Bush have also been vocal in their condemnations of Trump, but have not endorsed Hillary.
What does it say for the future of the Republican Party when so many members of the most prominent conservative clan in the nation are abandoning their abrasive and racist nominee?
