Jeb Bush Defends Trump, Then Asks, “Who Cares What I Think?”

Speaking Thursday to a crowd of finance industry executives and researchers at Boston College’s 12th annual Carroll School of Management Finance Conference, former Florida governor and failed GOP primary candidate Jeb Bush came off as more dejected than a Democrat on Nov. 9 of last year.

When asked by a member of the audience whether he believes President Donald Trump obstructed justice, Bush simply replied, “No, I don’t … but who cares what I think?

While there has been no definitive proof that Bush still feels saddened over his staggeringly poor performance during the 2016 election season — he eventually dropped out in February — his odd statement at the conference certainly lent credence to the theory.

Plus, this wasn’t the first time that he had acted out in ways that suggested he’s a man in grief. He skipped the president’s inauguration five months ago, and just last month, according to CNN, he criticized Trump for being “a chaos president” who’s allegedly “living in the tyranny of the moment” instead of “executing on a clear agenda.”

Nobody knows for certain what’s going on inside this man’s head, but given his back-and-forth behavior — one minute snubbing the president, the next minute criticizing the president and the next minute praising him — it seems like Bush is confused, at the very least.

“There is a process underway and the testimony today is not as relevant to me, in that regard, as Mr. Mueller’s activity,” he added Thursday, according to the Boston Herald, referring to special counsel Robert Mueller.
