The 2016 presidential race is shaping up to be one of the most interesting political contests in American history. Hillary Clinton is looking to become the first woman to be elected our Commander-In-Chief, Donald Trump, real estate mogul and former reality TV star actually has a real chance, a legendary Black surgeon–who, time and time again, has exhibited prejudiced (?) tendencies–and, of course, a Bush.
The Bush–Jeb, George W.’s brother–isn’t totally out of it, but he’ll certainly need some help. Chances are, this isn’t how he’ll attain it. Just days after a shooting at an Oregon college left between 7 and 10 people dead, and twice as many injured–many of them women–Bush, speaking at a promotional event in South Carolina, pretty much said ‘sh*t happens’ in reference to the tragedy. A video of him showing off his incredulous lack of sensitivity training is above, in case you’d rather watch that than the absurdly early NFL game that’s just kicked off.
It’s a—we’re in a difficult time in our country, and I don’t think more government is necessarily the answer to this. I think we need to reconnect ourselves with everybody else. It’s very sad to see, but I resist the notion—and I had this challenge as governor, because we had—look, stuff happens. There’s always a crisis, and the impulse is always to do something, and it’s not necessarily the right thing to do.
Okay, he said “stuff happens.” It’s really the same thing. Then again, we shouldn’t be surprised, just add that to the laundry list of absurd things George W. said while he was in office, and make sure you keep a running tab should Jeb be elected. Then again, if he doesn’t?
