Bush on Trump: You can’t insult your way to the White House – CNN

Watch the full interview with Jeb Bush on “The Lead” with Jake Tapper at 4 p.m. ET

Washington (CNN)Jeb Bush said Thursday that Donald Trump cannot insult his way to the presidency, a reference to controversial remarks Trump made about Carly Fiorina’s looks that were published in a recent magazine story.

“Look, I don’t get it. I don’t see how over the long haul that you can insult your way to the nomination or the president — certainly not the presidency — and not the nomination either,” Bush told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “The Lead.”

“This disparaging of women is deeply troubling. It just doesn’t make any sense to me,” Bush continued. “Carly Fiorina has made a good contribution already and will continue to make a contribution in this nomination process. She should be respected as a talented person and a viable candidate.”

Earlier Thursday, Trump attempted to defend the remarks he made about his fellow GOP presidential contender in a Rolling Stone profile published Wednesday.

“Look at that face!” Trump told a Rolling Stone reporter as Fiorina appeared on TV. “Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president.”

“I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not s’posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?” Trump said, according to the magazine.
