Even though Donald Trump may constantly deride fellow GOP contender Jeb Bush as being “low energy,” it appears that Jeb is doing his best to take some major verbal shots at the hamster-headed frontrunner.
“Just one other thing — I gotta get this off my chest — Donald Trump is a jerk.”
The gathered crowd laughed and applauded the line, but Bush wasn’t finished dishing out the abuse:
“You cannot insult your way to the presidency. You can’t disparage women, Hispanics, disabled people. Who is he kidding? This country is far better than that.”
Of course, if one takes a close look at the polls, apparently one can insult his way to the lead in the Republican pack, even as he disparages women, Hispanics, and the disabled.
“We should reject that out of hand. And I hope you’re going to reject it by voting for me. But a guy like that should not be the front-running candidate of our great party. That is not how we win.”
That also garnered applause, and Bush thanked the audience:
“I feel better now. I gave myself therapy there. Thank you for allowing me to do it.”
As you might expect, Trump immediately took to social media and tweeted out this:
The last thing our country needs is another BUSH! Dumb as a rock!

I gotta admit, while I don’t like either Bush or Trump (not surprising since I’m a progressive Democrat), Bush deserves some major props for taking on the big bad wolf known as Trump.
Hey, Jeb, keep up the heat on the Donald and eventually we might even get that crazy hair of his to wilt and roll down his face.
