Jeb Bush has blamed the pope for his failed presidential campaign and the rise of Trump.
“The news cycle was dominated by that. Trump, to his credit, was very smart at exploiting these kind of opportunities,” Bush griped.
“You’re a Catholic blaming the pope?” interviewer and former Bush staffer Nicolle Wallace wondered.
“I mean, [I had] been talking about basically open borders at a time when the whole Trump phenomena was to build a wall and let, make Mexico pay for where he goes — literally goes to the border for a massive Mass.”
“And he had every right to preach the gospel there. But I don’t think he should be intervening. I don’t know if he understood that he was intervening in our political affairs.”
