Jeb Bush has never gotten over losing the 2016 Republican nomination to Donald Trump. That is no excuse, however, for attacking Trump’s 12 year old son Barron. All Jeb Bush has done here is prove that Republican voters made the right decision by passing him over.
The Washington Times reports:
Classy, dignified, substantive Jeb Bush attacks 12-year-old Barron Trump
Jeb Bush, the man who was supposed to be the Republican nominee for president in 2016 until his birth-right was stolen from him by the crass, vulgar and despicable Donald Trump, has taken his psychological obsession with his own failure to a new low… he has attacked Trump’s 12-year-old son, Barron.
Speaking at Yale University, the former Florida Governor first claimed he would not get into a re-hash of the 2016 election (what would he have to say about it, anyway? He got 3 delegates after spending $150 million of other people’s money) But, according to Yale News, he eventually exorcised some demons by looking at the sunny side of his crushing defeat.
At one point, Bush described the current president as “Republican in basically name only.” And earlier in his speech, Bush said that after the 2016 Republican primary in South Carolina, he returned home to children who “actually love me.” His comment was met with raucous laughter from the crowd, and several audience members interviewed after the event said they interpreted Bush’s comment as a jab at Trump.
How pathetic. Find a new hobby, Jeb. You clearly need something to take your mind off of politics.
