With Donald Trump dominating media attention since announcing his run for the White House, fellow Republican presidential contender Jeb Bush has had his fill of the outspoken billionaire.
In an interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier that aired on “Fox News Sunday,” Bush was asked if Trump “is bad for the GOP?”
“I’ve already stated my views about Donald Trump,” Bush said, in a Hillary Clinton-esque manner.
“You’re done?” asked Baier.
“I’m done,” said Bush. “I’m through. I gave my views. I just think we need to be much more hopeful and optimistic about our ideology.”
It’s hard to say which is more troubling, Bush dictating the terms of the questioning, or Baier so readily acquiescing.
“We have the winning ideology: limited government, personal responsibility, individual liberty creates more prosperity and more advantages than any other form of political philosophy,” Bush added.
“We should focus on that and not get into a food fight that only brings energy to someone who I doubt will be president and is not a constructive force for our party.”
