Jeb Bush Response To Donald Trump’s Attack on his Wife is Unbelievably Weak
Over the weekend, businessman and flaming bag of dogcrap on the Republican Party’s porch Donald Trump tweeted and deleted an attack on Jeb Bush and his wife, Columba Bush. He quoted a tweet that said “#JebBush has to like the Mexican Illegals because of his wife,” and while Trump now says he didn’t authorize that tweet, he also says he stands by it:
“I didn’t authorize it. i don’t regret anything. it was a retweet, wasn’t me. If you look carefully, a retweet of a story, a very good story, a very strong story, good story, fair story. But do I regret — no, I don’t regret it. Look, I would say that he would, if my wife were from Mexico, I think I would have a soft spot for people from Mexico. I can understand that.”
That sounds pretty reasonable, except for the fact that Trump is saying that Jeb Bush’s affection for his wife, and concurrent soft spot for people from Mexico, is a substantive and political liability that will result in our country being overrun by Mexican rapists.
