Washington, Mar 11: Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush has called the media ‘crack addicts’ during an interview.
Bush’s comments came after he was asked who is more likely to end up in the White House one day – him or Senator Mar o Rubio, his fellow Floridian for whom Bush served as political mentor.
On NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’, Bush said that media was crack addicts as it was really obsessed with all this politics. Mar o Rubio’s a great guy.
According to ABC News, Bush said that there were bigger challenges than just to keep playing politics.
The relationship between Bush and Rubio came to the spotlight earlier this week after the former Florida governor released a book that did not support a path to citizenship in immigration reform, a point Rubio is promoting in his Gang of 8 proposal.
One day later, Bush changed direction and said he would endorse a path to citizenship.
Bush later pointed out Rubio did not support the measure when he was writing the book.
In an interview with Time Magazine last month, Rubio said his conversation with Bush regarding immigration reform while the former governor was writing the book amounted to a text message.
Bush told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos Sunday that he is “in sync” with the bipartisan group of senators on immigration reform, the report added. (ANI)
