Even when we take the blood soaked record of other former US presidents into consideration, George W. Bush still stands out as one of the biggest war criminals and human rights' violator in world history. Using false evidence, Bush led the US to the Iraq War. Over 1 million civilians were killed, millions more were displaced and the effects are still felt by those who live there, with millions becoming sick, thousands of babies being born with birth deffects, etc.

Domestically, of course, Bush was also a mess and, even now, his family is still causing havoc in the country. In fact, the Bush family was one of the biggest advocates for Kavanaugh, normalizing him to segments of the US establishment which helped him confirm his seat at the Supreme Court.
None of that seems to move People's Woman of the Year Michelle Obama. In an interview with Jenna Bush for the Today Show, she says she doesn't see any problem with her friends Ellen DeGeneres and George W. Bush also being friends with each other. She goes further and says:
“Our values are the same. We disagree on policy, but we don’t disagree on humanity, we don’t disagree about love and compassion”.

Because nothing says "functioning democracy" like former presidents using public service to become part of the 1% with no scrutiny whatsoever, all while so-called liberals treat them as harmless celebrities. Meanwhile, life expectancy in the US declines for the third straight year. Inequality also keeps reaching record levels year after year.
