Jeb Bush: 'I got a lot of really cool things I could do rather than be prez'



Jeb Bush showed his irritation with today's political culture -- and, critics are saying, his sense of entitlement - while campaigning in South Carolina this weekend.

"If this election is about how we'€™re going to fight to get nothing done, then I don'€™t want any part of it. I don'€™t want to be elected president to sit around and see gridlock just become so dominant that people literally are in decline in their lives. That is not my motivation. I'€™ve got a lot of really cool things I could do other than sit around, being miserable, listening to people demonize me and me feeling compelled to demonize them. That is a joke. Elect Trump if you want that,"€ he said.
