Bush: Trump will make Clinton stronger and popular


Republican Presidential hopeful for 2016 elections, Jeb Bush has blasted his counterpart in the GOP race, Donald Trump’s off-color comments about Democratic presidential aspirant, Hillary Clinton, telling reporters he has stretched the limits of political incorrectness too far and threatens to allow the likely Democratic nominee to play the victim. “Just imagine him as president at a press conference,” Bush said when asked about Trump’s comments following a town hall here Tuesday afternoon. “There has to be a level of decorum to win. It’s not a sign of strength to insult people with profanity. It’s not a serious thing.” Recently, Bush has told Trump that he can’t insult his way to the Whitehouse.

Trump: full of insults

Donald Trump’s insults against Hillary Clinton prompted the Democratic presidential front-runner and former secretary of State, Hillary Clinton on Tuesday to lambaste her Republican counterpart as a bully. “We shouldn’t let anybody bully his way into the presidency because that is not who we are as Americans,” Clinton said at a town hall in Keota, Iowa, one day after Trump told a rally in Michigan that “she was favored to win, and she got schlonged” by President Barack Obama in the 2008 election, using Yiddish slang for male genitalia. He also called her late return from a restroom break during Saturday night’s Democratic debate “disgusting.” According to the Politico, Bush, who has been trying to regain a foothold in a top position of the  GOP primary by positioning himself as Trump’s toughest critic, blasted the Manhattan mogul on a number of policy points during the town hall but did not address the comments about Clinton until asked about them during a gaggle with reporters afterwards.

Clinton is good at acting

Jeb Bush further said that Trump’s comments actually help Clinton: “She’s great at being the victim,” Bush said. “This will enhance her victimology status. This is what she loves doing. Trump is not going to be president because he says these things, it turns people off. For crying out loud, we’re two days before Christmas. Lighten up, man.” Asked to clarify his comment about Clinton, Bush told reporters, “I’m saying that she will use this in a way that won’t be helpful to our cause.”

after speaking for a while on Trump’s ban of Muslims, which would make it hard for the US to maintain alliances aginst ISIS, Bush stopped and said: “I promise I won’t talk about Trump again.” He kept that promise for less than three minutes.
