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.
