Donald Trump savages George W. Bush in one tweet and actually makes sense for the first time

All right, we'll say it: Trump got this one just right

So this will turn your stomach:

Former President George W. Bush charged $100,000 to speak at a charity fundraiser for U.S. military veterans severely wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan, and former First Lady Laura Bush collected $50,000 to appear a year earlier, officials of the Texas-based Helping a Hero charity confirmed to ABC News.

The former President was also provided with a private jet to travel to Houston at a cost of $20,000, the officials said.

Yes, that means what you think it does. Bush just raked in six figures to appear at a charity event for wounded veterans of two wars his administration lied, misled and blundered us into. 

And who actually put it all together in one coherent, right-on tweet? Donald Trump.
