Bush Video, Trump Response Shine Light on Hyperpartisanship

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Former President George W. Bush's viral video calling for unity — and current President Donald Trump's reaction to it — have made major news nationwide, sparking discussions about the state of hyperpartisanship in the United States and nostalgic reflections on the politics of past eras. Many former Bush critics applauded the video, which was shared on May 2. Most left-rated outlets and voices focused on Trump's negative response to the video; some right-rated voices argued that Bush's offenses as president were worse than those of Trump, while offering support for the current president's criticisms of the former.
