Conway noted the high expectations surrounding former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's White House candidacy and his failed Republican presidential bid.


"I know there are a lot of hurt feelings there," Conway told Erin Burnett on CNN's "OutFront."

The Trump aide was pressed about news that George H.W. Bush, Jeb's father, would vote for Clinton over Trump, the GOP nominee.

"That is his right," Conway said. "I think that Americans are very grateful to the Bush family for their public service.'

Robert F. Kennedy's daughter Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, a former lieutenant governor of Maryland, posted a picture on Facebook of herself with Bush Monday, saying the 92-year-old told her he's voting for Clinton.

The comment came in a receiving line for board members of the bipartisan Points of Light Foundation, CNN reported Tuesday.

"I think what's most disturbing about this report to me, Erin, is that someone divulged a private conversation," Conway said. "It doesn't seem that it was meant for public consumption and that's always very bothersome to me."

Bush indicating his intention to vote for Clinton represents a stunning development in an election year where a number of former GOP administration officials have said they'll vote for Clinton over Trump.

Jeb Bush has also withheld his endorsement of Trump despite vowing during the GOP primary to back the eventual nominee. Former President George W. Bush has shied away from discussing Trump.
