Speaking Thursday to a crowd of finance industry executives and researchers at Boston College’s 12th annual Carroll School of Management Finance Conference, former Florida governor and failed GOP primary candidate Jeb Bush came off as more dejected than a Democrat on Nov. 9 of last year.
When asked by a member of the audience whether he believes President Donald Trump obstructed justice, Bush simply replied, “No, I don’t … but who cares what I think?“
While there has been no definitive proof that Bush still feels saddened over his staggeringly poor performance during the 2016 election season — he eventually dropped out in February — his odd statement at the conference certainly lent credence to the theory.
Plus, this wasn’t the first time that he had acted out in ways that suggested he’s a man in grief. He skipped the president’s inauguration five months ago, and just last month, according to CNN, he criticized Trump for being “a chaos president” who’s allegedly “living in the tyranny of the moment” instead of “executing on a clear agenda.”
Nobody knows for certain what’s going on inside this man’s head, but given his back-and-forth behavior — one minute snubbing the president, the next minute criticizing the president and the next minute praising him — it seems like Bush is confused, at the very least.
“There is a process underway and the testimony today is not as relevant to me, in that regard, as Mr. Mueller’s activity,” he added Thursday, according to the Boston Herald, referring to special counsel Robert Mueller.
Bush was talking about testimony being delivered that day to the Senate Intelligence Committee by former FBI Director James Comey, whose recent hash of statements and actions have led the left to believe the president obstructed justice by allegedly trying to stop him from continuing the bureau’s investigation into unproven Russian collusion by his election campaign.
“It would be great to get back to the business of governing and less about the swirling controversies,” Bush continued. “I just think the president needs to focus on doing his job. There are great opportunities for him to hire people.”
Hire people like you, perhaps? (wink wink wink)
Oh, Jeb, things will be OK one day. You just wait and see!
