Rich Jeb Bush Says It’s Not About How Rich You Are

If running for President is not about how rich you are, then how come the top three ranking Republican presidential candidates in the latest opinion poll are all either millionaires or billionaires? […]

It Turns Out Jeb Bush Is Just As Stupid And Crazy As His Brother
