15 Ways Jeb Bush's Life Is A Comically Embarrassing Human Tragedy

Perhaps one of the most memorable aspects of Jeb Bush's 2016 presidential campaign was just how unmemorable it was. His bid for the presidency was marked by self-deprecating comments, bullying tweets from Donald Trump, a less-than-supportive family, and a sad plea for his supporters to, please, just clap for him. After he didn't win any state Republican caucuses, a disappointed Jeb dropped out of the race.

Although he came from one of the American presidency's legacy families, the 2016 campaign was just the tip of the embarrassment iceberg for Jeb Bush, who's had to deal with his fair share of private family embarrassments as well; by his own father's admission, Jeb typically came second to his older brother and former US President, George W. Bush. His mother also publicly declared she hoped he wouldn't become president. Jeb has since become the butt of many online jokes, memes, and even has his own card in Cards Against Humanity, which simply reads: "Jeb!"
