Jeb Bush hasn’t said much since his tearful goodbye in South Carolina two Februarys ago, but at a talk at Yale on Tuesday sponsored by the William F. Buckley Jr. Program (of course it was), Jeb assured everyone that he’s extremely not mad about not being president, and in fact, he is laughing about it, because it’s funny to him.
The Yale Daily News reports:
“I’m not going to talk about the 2016 election,” Bush joked on Tuesday in a talk sponsored by the The William F. Buckley, Jr. Program at Yale. “I’m still in therapy.”
But that didn’t stop him from taking shots at President Donald Trump, his opponent in the 2016 Republican presidential primary. At one point, Bush said that, unlike Trump, he returns home every day to his children “who actually love me.”
Jeb Bush was supposed to be the “smart one” in his family. It was his destiny to follow in the footsteps of his father and brother and be the president, until a reality TV show host humiliated him and knocked him out of the Republican primary after the third contest. But you gotta let this go, Jeb; at the very least, you never got the chance to be a war criminal like your idiot brother. And that’s gotta count for something, right? Right?
According to the Yale Daily News, Jeb also said during the event that the Republican Party needs to embrace something called “bottom-up economics,” which sounds like Marx to me. Welcome to the DSA, Jeb.
