George W. Bush Didn’t Vote for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton

When it comes to rocking the vote, the Bushes have chosen to opt out of voting for president.

Freddy Ford, a spokesman for the Bush family, confirmed to Variety on Tuesday that George W. Bush and Laura Bush did not vote for presidential candidates Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton on Election Day.

“President and Mrs. Bush voted ‘None of the Above’ for President and Republican down-ballot,” Ford said in an email, meaning that the pair voted for Republicans in local and congressional races.

Despite this, conservative radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh earlier on Tuesday reported that the pair had cast their ballot toward Democratic presidential nominee Clinton. Though Limbaugh was misinformed, the talk-show host’s comments had already been picked up by the Washington Post, New York Magazine, and other publications.

“Rush is wrong and should apologize,” Ford told CNN.

Limbaugh then posted a correction to his website, saying, “We’ve been told by President George W. Bush’s office that President Bush did not vote for Hillary Clinton as was reported on today’s show. He voted two weeks ago and did not vote for her.”

It was also previously reported the George H.W. Bush, as well as other members of the Bush family, had endorsed Clinton for the presidency. It has not been confirmed if George H.W. Bush voted for Clinton in this year’s election.
