After enduring so much mudslinging he could build a village of mud huts, Jeb finally has enough and slings a handful back. Will this get Trump’s attention? You bet! And chances are he’ll come back flinging like a mud-caked waterwheel at Bush who said, “Donald Trump is a jerk!”, according to the New York Times, following up with the comment that one cannot insult his or her way into the presidency immediately following his own offense.
Bush said the following, without hesitation.
“You cannot insult your way to the presidency. You can’t disparage women, Hispanics, disabled people. Who is he kidding? This country is far better than that. The idea that he’s actually running for president and insulting people is deeply discouraging, to be honest with you, and I think we should reject that out of hand. I hope you’ll reject it by voting for me, but a guy like that should not be the front-running candidate of our great party.”
Jeb Bush jumped right on the bandwagon with an unexpected outpouring. The comments arrived after a man claiming to have Spectrum Syndrome, or Asperger’s, asked the former Florida governor what he anticipated doing about people with disabilities. The man wanted answers for our country, not someone to crouch down in the foxhole with him. Trump has a unique way of speaking to the disabled that we’re all too familiar with from last month, so it’s a question of concern from all of the candidates. Jeb took the invitation and ran with it, sighing at the end.
After Jeb released his pent up anxiety he chuckled and breathed, calling his new sense of freedom “therapy.” If this is the case, wouldn’t that mean that Donald Trump is mentally healthy? After all, his pursed lips and vile insults hit somebody every time he opens his mouth during an interview, whether insulting Clinton, Obama, Bush, or Muslims (even though he claims to pay Muslims for working around his properties).
Jeb Bush is struggling, though, more than the former Bushes in elections. Then again, the lower roots didn’t get as much nutrition as the plant above ground. We noticed that when 9/11 happened during storytime, George W. Bush Jr., Jeb’s elder sibling, was caught in yet another lie. With this being said, what precedence does the country have concerning another Bush as president? His father was mediocre and the lame plant trails down from there.
Even still Bush’s numbers are single digits in the polls now, in order to remain in the race at all, he needs to at least pull a tie with New Jersey’s Governor Christie, Ohio’s Governor, Kasich, and Florida’s Senator, Marco Rubio. Otherwise, there’s no resuscitating the Bush name, at least this go round.
Desperation is apparent in Jeb’s words as after having spent oodles of dollars campaigning, he’s realized the money isn’t enough. He needs votes. So Saturday morning, he begged his voters to not only submit their backing, but to do so by being actively involved in campaigning for him. This type of behavior not only appears frantic, but also tends to prove Donald Trump’s insulting words toward Bush.
When the mudslinging continues, Bush throws out there even more by saying that Donald Trump doesn’t have intelligence enough to understand what we’re asking of the Kurdish people. The United States asks the Kurdish to fight ISIS in their homeland, yet Trump doesn’t want to allow them here because they are Muslim, CNN Politics informs us.
We totally get Jeb Bush has a long, hard road ahead of him if he’s going to live up to his family name. However, it would appear as if a Trump in the air is worth two in the Bush.
