Last night, President Donald Trump held a raucous rally in Montana, where he attacked senators, media, and sexual assault survivors.

But he also took a moment to—oddly—go after former President George H.W. Bush’s call for volunteerism in 1989.

That was too much for Ari Fleischer, press secretary under George W. Bush, who was flabbergasted that Trump would attack a senior citizen.

Fleischer—who has not taken a hardline stance against the current president on a number of issues—was ripped online for this being his breaking point with Trump.

Seriously though. Of all the things to declare “uncalled for,” this was a curious decision.
