Come on Jeb, find some energy, put your big boy pants on and grow a backbone. Perhaps try to stop being such a defeatist and get on board with American people, who by large support securing our border against drug smuggling and crime.
So Jeb Bush crawls down from his tree-house of shame, from his performance in the primaries, and the first major announcement he has is low-energy defeatism. Is it any wonder he didn’t inspire more people to vote for him? Well Jeb, nothings going to get done with your attitude, as you’ve already lost the battle before its even started. Maybe he thinks he’s just getting a jab in at Trump, and trying his best to stop him from becoming President even betraying his own party in the process, but he’s not even doing a good job at that.
So a politician like Jeb, who are all notorious for breaking campaign promises, immediately assumes that Donald Trump will follow suite by breaking his #1 promise to supporters as soon as he gets in office? This just goes to show how out of touch our “establishment” leaders are from reality. Jeb, you are a laughing stock to the majority of voters, your words hold no weight and literally every politician has been wrong about Donald Trump since the day he announced his candidacy.
Jeb, please go attend the nearest Donald Trump rally for a much needed injection of high-energy and reality.
The Daily Mail reports:
Jeb! says Trump will never build his Mexico wall and his believers will ‘feel betrayed’ – but he seems to think The Donald will win the White House
- Jeb Bush sat down with former White House communications director Nicolle Wallace for a conversation to be broadcast on MSNBC tonight
- Bush gave ‘kudos’ to Donald Trump – who he won’t endorse – for ‘manipulating the environment’ to become the GOP’s presumptive nominee
- The former Florida governor worried that Trump’s election would lead to disappointment as the billionaire won’t get his campaign promises done
Former GOP presidential hopeful Jeb Bush shared some rather dismal predictions for a Donald Trump presidency, but, so far, didn’t discount that it could happen.
Bush sat down for his first conversation since Trump became the presumptive Republican nominee chatting with his brother’s former White House communications director Nicolle Wallace on MSNBC.
The former Florida governor, who dropped his bid for the White House in February on the night of the South Carolina primary, said voters will ‘feel betrayed’ by Trump because some of his campaign promises – from building a Mexican border wall to banning non-American Muslims from the country – would never materialize.
‘Trump, you know, to his credit was very smart at exploiting these kinds of opportunities,’ Bush told Wallace as they sat down near his family’s compound in Kennebunkport, Maine.
‘He’s a master at understanding how the media works – more than anybody I’ve seen in politics,’ the former governor continued.
‘Kudos to him for, you know, kind of creating the environment and then manipulating the environment to his effect,’ Bush added.
Bush, who had a well-funded super PAC to do his bidding, was branded early on as a frontrunner, with many political prognosticators expecting a do-over from 1992, a Bush against a Clinton.
But the Republican electorate was not interested in voting for the old guard, with Trump and also Sen. Ted Cruz, who’s often broken ranks with his colleagues on Capitol Hill, pushing them rightward, as two of the last three candidates standing.
Before there was ‘Lyin’ Ted’ and ‘Little Marco,’ Trump branded Bush as ‘low energy,’ a moniker that plagued the wonkish and often soft-spoken ex-governor throughout his campaign.
After Bush dropped out the wounds still festered.
He said he won’t endorse Trump.
His father, former President George H.W. Bush, and his brother, President George W. Bush, both won’t be attending the Republican National Convention, which kicks off next week in Cleveland, Ohio.
Today, once Bush delivered his half-hearted ‘kudos’ to Trump, he explained how the presumptive nominee will be a disappointment when elected.
‘The tragedy of this though, is that there isn’t going to be a wall built. And Mexico’s not going to pay for it. And there’s not going to be ban on Muslims,’ Bush said, noting that it’s ‘like an alternative universe he created.’
‘And people are going to be deeply frustrated and the divides will grow in our country,’ Bush continued. ‘This extraordinary country, still the greatest country on the earth, will continue to stagger instead of soar.’
‘And that’s the heartbreaking part of this,’ Bush added. ‘Is that I think people are really going to be betrayed.’
The remainder of Bush’s conversation with Wallace, a Republican analyst for the left-leaning network, will air at 10 p.m. EST tonight.
