Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush recently said that he would kill baby Hitler (video below).
During a campaign bus ride in Moultonborough, New Hampshire, Bush was asked by a reporter from The Huffington Post about the most bizarre email that he has received.
Bush recalled an email that asked if he would go back in time and kill baby Hitler.
“Hell yeah, I would,” Bush stated.
"Even if he was really cute?" The Huffington Post reporter asked.
“No, look, you gotta step up, man, that would be key,” Bush insisted. "The problem with going back in history and doing that is, as we know from the series. What was the name of the Michael Fox movies? Back To Future. It could have a dangerous effect on everything else, but I'd do it, Hitler."
Mediaite.com notes that Twitter users mocked Bush's answer with his anti-abortion views:
"But would Jeb abort fetus Hitler?"
"Jeb says he would kill Baby Hitler. But would he advise Mrs. Hitler to abort him as fetus? If not, what then? She has it & Jeb kills him?"
"Better question: If Jeb Bush encountered Hitler’s pregnant mother, would he safely terminate her pregnancy?"
"That said, I'm excited for baby hitler to become the next GOP primary issue"
