Jeb Bush, who unsuccessfully ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016, told CNBC on Thursday he feels like a "fish out of water" in the current state of divisiveness in America.
Asked if he'd ever consider running for president again, the 66-year-old former Florida governor said: "I don't know. I love policy. I love my country. But this political environment right now, I'm not suited for. To be honest with you. I'm a fish out of water. I can't imagine having to attack someone to make yourself look strong."
In the "Squawk Box" interview, Bush said he did not vote for Donald Trump in the 2016 election and did not vote for Hillary Clinton.
However, Bush said, "I'm not a 'never Trumper.'" He said fellow Republicans should work with and "praise the president when he does good things," such as tax reform and deregulation.

Jeb Bush Kicked Off Stage In Saddest Moment Ever [Hilarious Video]
What a putz.

If your son, Prescott was not still trying to scrape out a career in politics, you, Jeb would be worse than John McCain was in trying to sabotage and ruin whatever this president manages to accomplish.
The butt hurt is strong with this one.
That passage from Revelations can be taken in very different ways.
Attacking the guy that beat your a—, lacks class ole’ Jeb. You just attacked someone because you’re weak and trying to look strong. So hmmmm. Loser and hypocrit.
the one thing Trump did was WIN.....
Feeling’s mutual, Jebra.
Trump is in process of exposing hundreds of phony-ponies; I think yebbie was one of the first — some distinction.
I never understood these words.
Does Jesus mean you’re screwed anyway if you’re consistently evil but at least you didn’t waffle or did he mean there’s more of a chance for that person than for a luke warm person to get to Heaven, or at least Purgatory?
Brain damage. Jebby did too many drugs at Andover.
Like say exactly what you would do in office, then get it done? I believe him.
Hes quite the useful idiot that Jib.
My man Yeb! had 3 delegates at the convention to Trump’s mere 1725. It was a tie, man. It was a tossup.
el es un payaso!
