Is there anything more endearing than politicians trying to act like folksy normal people in a carefully calculated way to get the most votes?
Apparently, Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush (aka JEB!) has started a tradition of “chest bumping” every new convert to his campaign – because really firm handshakes just aren’t manly enough. Jeb! also told reporters “Any time you guys want to try a chest bump, I’m all in.”
Of course, Jeb! isn’t a particularly young or athletic man, so his chest bumps look more like awkwardly stumbling into someone. Also, side note, what happens when the convert is a woman?
Jeb! is currently 4th in the polls in Iowa, if you were wondering.
