Jeb is Feeling Better After Slamming ‘Jerk’ Trump During Town Hall Outburst

Donald Trump might’ve been feeling that Jeb Bush got away with attacking him at the GOP debate, because throughout Friday, he sent several jabs at him in the way he knows best.

ABC reported that Bush kept on the offensive against Trump, which had its own moment yesterday at a New Hampshire town hall.

While Bush addressed measures he would consider as president to aid people with disabilities, he finished his answer with an outburst that brought back Trump’s controversial moment when he seemingly mocked a disabled reporter’s condition.

“Donald Trump is a jerk,” Bush blurted out to general applause. “You cannot insult your way to the presidency, you can’t disparage women, Hispanics, disabled people, who is he kidding? This country is far better than that.”

KVIA reported that Bush continued that Trump’s repeated insulting of various groups was “deeply discouraging,” and that such rhetoric should be rejected on principle. After more applause, Bush added “I feel better now. I gave myself therapy there. Thank you for allowing me to do it.”
