Jeb Goes Off: I Could Be Doing ‘Really Cool Things’ Instead of Being President, You Know

jebJeb Bush let his agitation show on the campaign trail today when he complained about gridlock and partisanship in South Carolina.

Bush attended a presidential town hall held by Senator Tim Scott, and they were even joined on stage by none other than South Carolina congressman and Benghazi Select Committee chairman Trey Gowdy.

At one point, when he was lamenting the state of partisan politics, Bush said, “If this election is about how we’re going to fight to get nothing done, then I don’t want any part of it.”

He said he would not want to become president just so the gridlock continues.

And that’s when Bush really got agitated:

“I’ve got a lot of really cool things I could do other than sit around, being miserable, listening to people demonize me and me feeling compelled to demonize them. That is a joke. Elect Trump if you want that.”
