Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush tweeted a photo of a gun that has his name etched in the firearm along with the caption, “America.”
A struggling Jeb Bush brought out the big gun Tuesday to fire up his sinking presidential campaign.
We don’t mean his brother.
The former Florida governor tweeted a picture of what appeared to be a monogramed semi-automatic weapon with a one-word message for his 470,000 followers: America.
Embossed with the words Gov. Jeb Bush, the gun raised a host of questions that Bush left hanging: Is it real? Was it loaded? Does he travel with it from state to state?
And the big question: Has he shown it to Donald Trump?
Jeb Bush’s tweet of a photo of a gun with his name etched on it got him more than 3,500 retweets and 2,700 likes in the first 30 minutes after posting.
In the 30 minutes after Bush posted the picture, it was retweeted more than 3,500 times and received about 2,700 likes.
One Twitter user wanted to know if the bullets were also engraved.
Another wanted to know if W’s gun was bigger.
Another doctored the photo to remove Bush’s name and replaced it with Also Ran.
