Matt Damon: 'I'd Eat My Shoe If Jeb Could Name a Bush That Ever Even Walked Into a Public School' By Noel Sheppard Created 11/16/2013 - 2:48pm
As NewsBusters reported, former Florida governor Jeb Bush pounded public school activist Matt Damon in August for putting his kids in private school.
Damon gave CNN's Jake Tapper a rather lame excuse for this in an online segment of their interview Friday while claiming, "I'd eat my shoe if he could name a Bush that ever even walked into a public school" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
JAKE TAPPER, HOST: Does that just come with the territory? I mean, I know actors can be, you know, used to criticism when it comes to your talents or cast in a movie. But when it comes to activism and ideas, it might be different.
MATT DAMON: Yeah, yeah, no, I think I
TAPPER: Well, people said, Well, you send your kids to private school. Why are you even involved in this?
DAMON: Well, because I, you know, because I want the public schools to, if they were, if they went back to, if I could find my, the private school that I send my kids to is the thing closest to the public school that I went to that I could find. And thats why I send my kids to private school. I wish I didn't have to, its expensive, and I also want my kids to be part of a, you know, their local community, you know, and not have to commute to somewhere else to go to school.
And thats likely why most people send their kids to private schools: because the quality of public schools in most areas is so poor.
As such, Damon was perfectly illustrating the liberal credo of Do As I Say, NOT As I Do!
But there was more:
TAPPER: I dont mean to bear down on your kids, I just
DAMON: No, no, no, no, because that was a criticism, I think it was Jeb Bush who tweeted that, and then retracted it pretty quickly. Although I'd eat my shoe if he could name a Bush that ever even walked into a public school, but thats another story. But, but no, I
TAPPER: You might have to eat your shoe. Im sure.
DAMON: Really? Maybe I will. Billy Bush, maybe hell call me up, Man, I went to public school.
Heck with Billy Bush.
The Miami Herald reported in 2002 that Jeb Bush initially attended the public Grady Elementary School in Houston before mother Barbara enrolled him in the private Kincaid School closer to where they lived.
Brother George W. attended public schools in Midland, Texas - Sam Houston Elementary and San Jacinto Junior High - before being enrolled at Kincaid when the family moved to Houston.
As such, would you like some salt for that shoe, Mr. Damon?
*****Update: Tweep @bzaz points out that George W's kids Jenna and Barbara both attended public schools - Preston Hollow Elementary in Dallas and Austin High School in Austin - and Jenna a few years after graduating college worked as a teacher's aide at Elsie Whitlow Stokes Community Freedom Public Charter School in Washington D.C.
Why does anyone give a rat’s rear end what that hypocrite Matt Damon has to say?
His kids go to the best private schools, so what’s it to him.
D’uh wnat a dufus. Laura Bush. The Doc Martens make a tasty meal.
Besides, if either of the Won's went, it was just to steal the kids food and boss them around, and if Bubba ever went, he was just trying to get a peek in the girls locker room.
Damon’s shoes are probably made of foie gras and caviar
Hey Matt: How’s that Obama working out for you?
BWA HA HA HA!
Matt Damon: Political credibility = ZERO.
” TAPPER: Well, people said, Well, you send your kids to private school. Why are you even involved in this?
DAMON: Well, because I, you know, because I want the public schools to, if they were, if they went back to,”
Well there you go with Right Club Rule #4: liberals are so full of sh*t, they lie to hide their hypocrisy.
Sounds like the moron could do with some classroom time himself.
Matt Damon needs to grow up.
G.W. was in a public school on 9/11/2001 -- and is still catching hell for not paying attention.
Anyone know how to get a hold of Damon:
GW Bush: Sam Houston Elementary School in Midland, Texas
Jeb Bush: Grady Elementary School in Houston
Agreed. Don’t like Damon but don’t care for Jeb either.
Where was Dubya on 9/11 again?...
Jenna Bush and Barbara Bush Jnr attended Austin High School. Chow down on your Nikes Damon.
The Bush twins went to public high school in Austin.
By comparison, Mister Damon is a college dropout.
(Perhaps a very jealous college dropout, n'est ce pas?)
I believe all of Obama’s American primary and secondary school experience was at Punalau, a very expensive private school.
Wasn't GWB with middle school kids on the day 911 happened?
