Oh Jeb! Oh Poor Awkward Jeb!

[Video via Raw Story.]
Video Description: Jeb! Bush appears via satellite on the Fox News show Fox & Friends.

Host Steve Doocy: You know, speaking about going back in time, Bill Clinton—there in New Hampshire, where you're sitting right now, yesterday on behalf of Hillary Clinton. Uh, what'd you think about his first solo outing?

Jeb! Bush: I didn't—I didn't follow it, to be honest with you. I don't really follow what's going on on the Democratic side [inaudible]. I do know that Hillary Clinton's not trustworthy. Um, she's continues [sic] to, uh, not tell the truth about the emails, about Benghazi, about a lot of things. I don't think she's trustworthy to be President of the United States. Irrespective of how charismatic her husband is, uh, the issue is about 2016 and beyond. And she is not trustworthy to be President of the United States.

Host Brian Kilmeade: Uh, Governor, the reason—one of the reasons I was thinking that would be a good question for you was because a lot of people say, you know, your brother also has a lot of popularity—like Bill Clinton has with Democrats, your brother has it with Republicans. Is that something that you think, if he could tell your story as well as you can, if not better, is that something you're considering?

Bush: Yeah. It is something to consider, 'cause he is very popular. And I also know I need to go earn this.
There's more to the video, during which Jeb! touts his awesome credentials or whatever, but who cares.

First of all: Nice grammatically incorrect talking point. "She's not trustworthy to be President." That is not words to be sentence.

Secondly: Jeb! Bush has some cheek calling Hillary Clinton untrustworthy while saying that his brother is very popular. Liar liar pants be fire.

Finally: I would say he looks like a deer in the headlights, but that would be an insult to deer and possibly also to headlights. "Perpetually on the verge of an audible gulp" is not a good look for a presidential candidate.

Go home, Jeb! Take a nap.
