We haven’t heard much from former Florida Governor Jeb Bush lately, but we are about to. Reports are he is in a giddy mood. Peals of laughter were heard emanating from his office at the Foundation For Excellence In Education as he stayed late last night to catch the Stormy Daniels interview on 60 Minutes, not wanting to watch it at home.
And what are we likely to hear from the governor? What is he so pleased about?
As perhaps the 2016 Republican presidential candidate most tormented by Donald Trump’s penchant for doling out nicknames – “low energy Jeb”, “dumb as a rock Jeb” among them – our reporter has found out Bush has a new nickname for Trump: “Spanky McTrump”.
“It’s going to stick. This is not going away. This one is going to stick,” Governor Bush told our reporter, hardly able to contain his glee.
The nickname is an obvious call back to the child actor Spanky McFarland of the Our Gang series of the 1930’s and 40’s. The “Spanky” appellation for Trump is a reference to what porn star Stormy Daniels said as part of her 60 Minutes interview.
If you are one of the few who didn’t watch or hear about this 60 Minute piece, make sure you schedule several stops by the water cooler at work this morning, or Google “Trump – rolled up magazine”. You’ll be in the know.
