If a man as unhinged as Donald Trump constantly smeared my father and my relatives, I would never be able to support him.

However, Jeb Bush's son did just that, when he told his fellow Republicans to hold their noses and vote for Trump.

George P. Bush, a Texas Land Commissioner, said this to a gathering of Texas Republicans:

"I know a lot of us in this room had dogs in the fight of the primary, leading up to the race. But you know what? It’s time to put it aside. From Team Bush, it's a bitter pill to swallow, but you know what? You get back up and you help the man that won, and you make sure that we stop Hillary Clinton.”

P. Bush was facing internal pressure to say something since he was given the job of the party’s 2016 “victory chairman,” charged with raising money and running the statewide campaign to “annihilate the Democrats up-and-down the ballot this November.”

Grandpa HW Bush and Uncle Dubya Bush have not endorsed Trump and Daddy Jeb Bush has been particularly outspoken about his criticisms of Trump, saying he'd never vote for the Donald.

But I guess if you're a Texas GOP fundraiser, your manure shovel already isn't "too clean to endorse Donald Trump."

Can you help us out?
