Newt Gingrich called Bushes "childish" for refusing to attend the RNC. Is he right? | The Tylt
Former Speaker of the House and Donald Trump supporter Newt Gingrich just dissed the Bush family hard on "Good Morning America," saying they were behaving “childishly” by refusing to endorse Trump or attend the Republican convention: "Jeb lost. Get over it," Gingrich scoffed.
Does Gingrich have a point? Or does he need to have a seat?

Newt Gingrich called Bushes "childish" for refusing to attend the RNC. Is he right?
Plenty of people, including many Trump supporters, applauded Gingrich's comments. Many conservatives are frustrated at what they see as the Bush family's refusal to support the party in its hour of need.
Other conservatives applaud the Bushes for standing on principle. They don't think the lack of endorsement has anything to do with Jeb losing to Trump, but everything to do with the quality of the Republican candidate.

No. They are not. Not childish to be aware of degree to which Trump subverts the world.
Others say the Bushes have every right to skip a convention that's nominating what they call the most divisive, unqualified presidential candidate in modern political history.
Some think Newt is speaking the truth: that the Bushes are being snobs and sore losers for sitting out the election.
