The crowd at Miami Dade University was still waiting for Jeb! to appear on stage when his mother, Barbara Bush, entered and appeared on the big screen — and judging from the reaction, maybe the wrong Bush is running for president.
Even Paul Begala admitted that Barbara Bush is “a national treasure”
Ironically, as far as her political beliefs go, Barbara Bush famously declared to Matt Lauer back in 2013 that she hoped Jeb! wouldn’t run for president in 2016, declaring that “we’ve had enough Bushes” in the White House and “there are other families” besides the Bushes and the Clintons. All the more reason to admire her?
Another favorite at the announcement? Hipster guy.
