If Christian Leaders Can’t Rebuke Trump for Saying Things Like This They Don’t Have a Healthy Relationship: Trump Comes Under Fire for Mocking Ailing 94-year-old George HW Bush at Montana Rally

President Donald Trump has taken a shot at an ailing former president, George HW Bush.

Speaking at a rally in Montana on Thursday, Trump mocked a phrase that Bush made famous when he successfully ran for president in 1988.

‘You know all of the rhetoric you see. “Thousands points of light.” What the hell was that by the way?’ Trump said to a crowd of supporters in Great Falls.

Trump’s remarks were reported by CNN.

‘Thousand points of light’ is a reference which Bush made during his speech before the Republican National Convention in 1988.

Bush, who was vice president at the time, was speaking about volunteer organizations and youth clubs as ‘a brilliant diversity spread like stars, like a thousand points of light in a broad and peaceful sky.’

He eventually used the phrase again during his inauguration speech.

In 1990, Bush created the Points of Light Foundation, which promoted non-governmental solutions to social problems.

In the 90s, Saturday Night Live comedian Dana Carvey imitated Bush and frequently used the phrase ‘thousand points of light.’

During Thursday’s Montana rally, Trump said: ‘Thousand points of light.’

‘What does that mean? I know one thing. Make America Great Again we understand.

‘Putting America first we understand.

‘Thousand points of light, I never quite got that one. What the hell is that?’

‘Has anyone ever figured that one out? It was put out by a Republican wasn’t it.’

Ari Fleischer, who was White House Press Secretary to President George W. Bush, tweeted in response: ‘This is so uncalled for. Going after a 94-year-old, former President’s promotion of volunteerism. I don’t mind potus being a fighter. I do mind him being rude.’
