Jeb Bush Admits Trump is “Kind of Scary”



No, it’s not what you think. While former Florida Governor, Jeb Bush (R-FL) did say that Trump was “kind of scary”, he wasn’t talking about being afraid of the man. He was talking about the ease in which Trump seems to handle and mold the media to his will.

When asked about a Trump presidency as opposed to a Clinton presidency – Bush was hardly effusive with praise.

When asked if Trump would be better than Clinton, Bush demurred saying,

“I’ll let the voters decide about Donald Trump. I’m pretty confident that the more they hear of him the less likely he’s going to get the Republican nomination.” Bush further explained his reticence to support a Trump nomination, “I have great doubts about Donald Trump’s ability to be commander in chief. I really do. I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt to see how the campaign unfolded. But if you listen to him talk, it’s kind of scary to be honest with you, because he’s not a serious candidate. He’s all over the map, misinformed at best and praying on people’s fears at worst.”

Bush did have some praise for Trump (which is where we find our “money” quote), backhanded though it was. “I just think he’s uninformed. He knows what he’s saying. He’s smart. He’s playing you guys like a fiddle, the press, by saying outrageous things and garnering attention. That’s his strategy, is to dominate the news,” Bush argued.
