During his interview with Hugh Hewitt, Jeb Bush mocked President Obama‘s idea that an international conference on climate change would be the “powerful rebuke” to ISIS he said it would be.
Obama gave a speech yesterday alongside President Francois Hollande, where he said that the best way to spite ISIS after the Paris attacks was by maintaining a sense of normalcy in day-to-day life. When he brought up the United Nation’s upcoming conference, Obama said, “what a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be when the world stands as one and shows that we will not be deterred from building a better future for our children.”
Bush, on the other hand, wasn’t so sure that the president’s thoughts — which he described as “breathtaking in its naiveté,” — were the best way to one-up terrorists.
“That’ll show ’em! That’ll show ISIS we mean business, that our values are different,” Bush said sarcastically. “Of course they’re different. This is a threat against Western civilization, and the response has been very halting, very weak, and it sends signals to our allies that we’re not serious anymore.”
