Jeb Bush’s mock-tweet of random Florida man sparks ridicule of Trump

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush mocked the tweet of a random Florida man on Monday talking about how authorities could ward off storms like Hurricane Dorian who is approaching the East Coast of the U.S. and threatens to hit states like Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.

The story: Bush re-tweeted a post by a man called Billy Corben, who ridiculed the Floridian, saying: “Donald Trump’s new FEMA administrator. Because Florida.”

Some, of course, used Bush’s tweet to criticize Trump.

“Don’t laugh. There are 62 million just like him who also voted for Trump,” one user wrote, according to the Independent Sentinel.

Others were equally disparaging of both Trump and the Florida man.

“This is an Elmer Fud audition, weally, it wis,” one wrote.

“Trump University valedictorian 2010,” another said.

“When Massachusetts sends us its people, they’re not sending their best,” yet another added, possibly referring to the man’s Boston accent.

“This dude belongs in the Trump administration. He’ll fit right in.”

“I thought Floridians liked to take their shotguns out on the beach, fire them in the air and scare the hurricane away.”
