Sore loser Jeb Bush is apparently still holding a grudge against the GOP for rejecting his presidential bid.
Bush trashed Republicans for standing behind President Donald Trump, saying he hasn’t punished Russia enough for its alleged meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
Jeb said the GOP slammed former president Barack Obama for giving Russia a free pass, but won’t criticize Trump the same way.
“If your opponent does things that your head explodes on, and when your guy does the same thing, have the same passion to be critical,” the former Florida governor said.
Bush made the remarks at the Ozy Fest in New York’s Central Park.

Basically, Jeb is furious that Trump has not sanctioned Russia more heavily for its alleged meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
President Trump has blasted Obama as a hypocrite, saying Obama knew about Russia’s attempted meddling but didn’t try to stop it because he was confident Hillary Clinton would win.
But after Trump won, the Democrats and the leftist media relentlessly attacked the Trump presidency by playing up the bogus Russia narrative even though polls show most Americans could not care less about Russia.
Keep in mind that the United States has repeatedly meddled in the elections of sovereign foreign nations, and continues to do so. All foreign states do that to each other; that’s an inconvenient truth.
Jeb Bush also urged politicians to be more civil in their political discourse and not resort to nasty personal attacks.
“Be civil,” he said. “The idea that you shout profanities at one another and expect the other guy or gal to respond like, ‘That’s so nice of you to call me a name,’ this is horrible … Now, strength is measured by how you insult people. Reject it, because we’re never going to solve problems that way.”
Bush raises a good point. But then again, he hasn’t been called a Nazi, a fascist, a racist white supremacist or a megalomaniacal nutcase.
The media and unhinged leftists also haven’t called Jeb’s wife “a hooker,” implied he was having sex with his own daughter, or called his son “autistic.” When Bush is on the receiving end of those types of attacks, we’ll see how civil he is.
Meanwhile, Trump-wannabe Mark Cuban participated in a panel discussion with Jeb, where he too whined about the lack of civility in today’s divisive political climate.
The billionaire mogul who owns the Dallas Mavericks basketball team has made countless headlines recently for attacking Trump. Not surprisingly, Cuban is hoping to turn his leftist pandering into a 2020 presidential run.
“If he lasts four years, I’ll be there to kick his [butt],” Cuban said. “We’ll see. I’m not making any proclamations yet.”
Here’s a reminder of Mark Cuban’s excellent prognostication skills. In September 2016, Cuban predicted the stock market would crash if Trump were elected.
Here’s the reality: The stock market has hit 25 record highs during Trump’s six months as president.
