This Explains Everything: Jeb Bush Says He Gets All Of His News From Fox


This morning on Fox & Friends, the show’s Mensa member co-hosts Brian Kilmeade, Steve Doocy and whatshername spoke with Republican presidential wannabe Jeb Bush, who said that
leading Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton “would be a national disaster.”

Asked if Clinton’s problems would be that bad, and an indictment would be coming, Bush replied:

“I only get my news from Fox & Friends.”

If that’s not enough to scare you into not casting a vote for Jeb! I don’t know what is.

Take a peek at this morning’s edition of Fox News’ Fox & Friends wherein Bush — who told America his brother President George W. Bush kept America safe during his presidential term, forgetting 9/11 was on W’s watch, that Hillary. were she to be elected, would “undermine our country.”

The Fox & Friends video transcript reads, in part:

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): I know Hillary Clinton was a common theme last night. She’s likely the opponent of whoever the nominee is. You had this line to talk about not only her foreign policy but her legal problems.
JEB BUSH: Hillary Clinton would be a national security disaster. Think about it. She wants to continue down the path of Iran, Benghazi, the Russian reset, Dodd-Frank, all the things that have gone wrong in this country. She’s under investigation with the FBI right now. If she gets elected, her first 100 days, instead of setting an agenda, she might be going back and forth between the White House and the courthouse. We need to stop that.
STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Funny line.
KILMEADE: So, you believe, Governor that the problems are that bad and your sources say the indictment could be coming?
BUSH: I don’t — I only get my news from Fox & Friends, so that’s all I get. All I’m saying is that she’s under investigation by the FBI. Just pause and think about that. That’s not, that’s a pretty uncommon thing for a presidential candidate. And each and every week it just seems like there’s more information. Now there’s, according to Fox again there’s expanded investigation on the connection with the Clinton Foundation. This is a serious deal. So I’m, look, I want to win. I think the Republicans need to win. We need to unify. Hillary Clinton would be an unmitigated disaster for ideological purposes. But she also has this legal problem that would really undermine our country.

Bush also brought up the new Michael Bay movie “13 Hours.” As if Michael Bay knows anything about life, let alone politics except bomb explosions, vehicle chases and breakaway glass.

“She’s untrustworthy at a minimum. She does not tell the truth. Today the Benghazi movie comes out and she lied about that to protect the election of Barack Obama,” said Bush.

Well, we all know that entertainment venues like our country’s movies theaters are where we go for the hard news facts.

Kilmeade actually followed up with this whopper, “We have people on Fox saying reaching critical mass with FBI.”

Um, no. But nice try.

Watch courtesy of Media Matters:

In this morning’s column by Chris Cillizza at Washington Post he wrote in The Fix that he felt bad for Jeb!

“I think, at some level, Bush understands the ridiculousness of his current situation…. And yet and yet and yet. Bush, as Trump likes to remind him, is at three percent while Trump is at 33 percent. So, yes, I feel badly for him. He’s hopelessly miscast in this race and, worst of all, he knows it.”

And over at the nonpartisan Politico they wrote:

“Here’s what’s wrong with Jeb Bush saying… Actually, Clinton is not under FBI investigation. The inquiry to which Bush refers revolves around the private email server Clinton used while serving as secretary of state. And it is not a criminal investigation.

Here are the facts, according to Politico.

In July 2015, the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community sent what is called a security referral to members of the executive branch. A security referral is essentially a notification that classified information might exist in a location outside of the government’s possession. In this case, the location was Clinton’s private email server.

The New York Times incorrectly reported that the inspectors general requested a criminal investigation into Clinton’s email use — as opposed to a security referral. But the newspaper later issued two corrections. The referral was in connection with Clinton’s account, not whether Clinton herself mishandled information, and did not allege criminal activity.

Officials told the Washington Post at the time that the FBI was not targeting Clinton specifically.

So there you have it. Bush lies. Fox News lies. Republicans lie.

Unfortunately there’s no law that says they must tell the truth. But if I had my way, I’d boil them all in oil and whip them with a wet noodle every time they open their mouths.
