Jeb to offended Hispanics: I was talking about ASIAN anchor babies

Trying to quell controversy within the Hispanic community over his use of the term “anchor babies,” Jeb Bush wound up insulting another group.

Speaking to reporters Monday, the 2016 Republican presidential hopeful said he was taken out of context and that his comments were “frankly, more related to Asian people.”

“What I was talking about was the specific case of fraud being committed where there’s organized efforts and, frankly, it’s more related to Asian people coming into our country, having children in that organized efforts taking advantage of a noble concept which is birthright citizenship,” Bush said. “I support the 14th amendment.”

Twitter users were quick to ridicule the former Florida governor for stepping in it again.
