Jeb Bush entered the 2016 Presidential campaign as the establishment’s hand-picked candidate.
Then Donald Trump descended down the escalator of the Trump Tower and proceeded to stomp out Jeb’s globalist ideology.
But ever since Trump assumed office, Jeb and his establishment allies appear to be exacting their revenge.
#NeverTrump allies of Jeb Bush have managed to infiltrate the administration.
Helen Aguirre Ferre is now the White House Director of Media Relations.
But before she held that position, she advised Jeb Bush’s Presidential campaign.
Ferre was also a prominent #NeverTrump “Republican” who viscously attacked Trump during the campaign.
“U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has chosen, as a new department staff member, a former Indiana education official who also worked for years at former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s education foundation.
Education media Chalkbeat reports Neil Ruddock has been working for the federal education department since early February after four years as regional advocacy director at Bush’s Foundation for Excellence in Education (FEE), where DeVos also served as a board member and to which she provided financial contributions…
… Other U.S. education department staffers who worked for Bush’s pro-Common Core foundation and for the Indiana education department include Andrew Kossack, who is listed as a “special assistant to the secretary.” Kossack is an attorney who was appointed as Indiana Department of Revenue commissioner under former Gov. Mike Pence. Prior to that position, he served as general counsel to Indiana’s ousted superintendent of education, Tony Bennett, who championed the adoption of the Common Core standards in the state. Bennett then became the Florida commissioner of education and was later investigated for fraud and resigned after allegations that he intervened in the grading system in Indiana to favor a charter school run by a prominent Republican Party donor.”
Trump won the GOP nomination by rejecting the Bush legacy.
That included Jeb’s support for a federal takeover of education – which is Common Core.
But now Jeb staffers are sneaking into the administration.
Will they work to undermine Trump’s agenda?
