Jeb Bush On Tiptoes: Photo Shows Bush Standing On Tiptoes Among Other GOP Candidates

Jeb Bush stood on his tiptoes for a group photo after the Republican primary debate Wednesday night.

The photo and video of Jeb Bush standing on his tiptoes is going viral. The six-foot, three-inch-tall Republican presidential candidate already towers over the other men, so why did he feel the need to raise up higher in the photo after the debate? He was standing next to his biggest rival in the race, Donald Trump.

This might be viewed as a possible attempt to overshadow his political opponents, but the presidential hopeful had an answer for it.

According to TPM, Fox News‘ Bill Hemmer addressed the question with the Florida governor Thursday morning on America’s Newsroom.

“Were you looking for someone?” Hemmer asked Bush. “Or were you looking to be a little taller than the guy there at your right?”

Jeb Bush told Hemmer that he was standing on his tiptoes because he was looking in the audience for his wife.

“I was looking over to the press to see where my wife was sitting because she’s the love of my life and just I need to have eye contact with her before we started. You’ve been married 42 years that’s the kind of thing you do.”
