Jeb Bush Shredded Online After Weird Gun Tweet


Jeb Bush is running far behind in every Republican party poll for the presidency, and it seems he's getting a bit desperate in his chase for votes. The former Florida governor today, seemingly in an overwhelming rush of pride for his country -- or in some play to get the support of the powerful gun lobby -- posted this tweet:

And got absolutely eviscerated for it, instantly.

People were very confused.

Then the serious ones:

Even a bunch of Aussies got in on the act.

Like, Australians really got into this one.

Jeb's ill-advised photo comes just days after more bizarre gun Tweets from manufacturer Glock. Because, who wouldn't want to get a cardboard heart box filled with bullets for Valentine's Day?

Sorry Jeb. Looks like this one was a backfire.
