*Ugh* Jeb Bush Sides With Jorge Ramos, Says Reporters Deserve “A Little More Respect”
Last night leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump held a press conference in Dubuque, Iowa.
During the press conference Trump was heckled and interrupted by Univision reporter, Jorge Ramos.
Jorge Ramos refused to wait his turn and refused to quit talking.
Trump had Ramos escorted from the room for his outburst.
Today Jeb Bush defended Jorge Ramos and criticized Donald Trump for not putting up with his abusive outburst.
NBC News reported:
Jeb Bush says that Univision anchor Jorge Ramos, who was escorted out of a press conference held by Donald Trump on Tuesday night, should have been “treated with a little more respect.”
“I think people with the press ought to be treated with a little more respect and dignity,” he told reporters.
Ramos was removed from the press conference after Trump accused him of interrupting another reporter to ask a question about immigration policy. Ramos was later allowed back into the room.
Bush’s comments came after a town hall event in Pensacola, Florida, where Bush continued to blast Trump’s immigration proposals as “not conservative” and said the real estate mogul should be held to the same standards as other Republican candidates.
“This guy is now the frontrunner,” he said. “He should be held to account, just like me.”
“Go through these questions and what you’ll find is this guy doesn’t have a plan,” he added. “He’s appealing to people’s angst and their anger. I want to solve problems so that we can fix this and turn immigration into what it’s always been: an economic driver for our country.”
