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?
Why does anyone give a rat's rear end what that RINO Jeb Bush has to say?
and how did they turn out?
IIRC GW Bush was reading a book to public school children in a Florida Public School at the time of the 9-11 attack.
Have some compassion. He wasn’t reading from a script. Like Sean Penn. Actors need a script to be able to speak coherently.
A) Matt Damon has his kids in private school
B) Hard to believe Bush during his tenure never set foot inside a public school.
So Matty boy is going to be really surprised eating those shoes.
I am not particularly a Bush fan. But just why would anyone even care where the Bush crowd went to school?? It’s no one’s business.

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"I liked how Tapper didn't let him off the hook, and the transcript shows a limolib lamebrain even less coherent without a script than his hero Zero.
“Hmmm...not that it matters, but wasn’t W at a public school when 911 happened?”
Yes. And leftists are still nagging about it.
I guess he wants better for his kids than he obviously received. He doesn’t sound very well spoken.
I don't care for the Bushes neither, but you have to identify when they attack the Bushes as a means of attacking ALL conservatives, whether or not the Bushes are conservative isn't the point.....Libtards, like Damon do see them as Conservative.
does he wear meat shoes?
Liberals are really to stupid to understand the very words they say. It is specifically because of the policies instituted by liberals like Mr. Damon that our schools are not like the ones he attended.
Matt was unable to read the memo saying that it was time to move off the Bush family and onto Palin and Cruz.
He’s from Cambridge-—that says it all
Bingo. That's why people send their kids to private schools. Because the public schools they went to themselves have been ruined by years of liberalism.
Bet it wouldn’t make a bit of difference to him if Ted Cruz did. Only Marxits can speak to any issues with credibility according to libs.
Pray America is Waking Up
Right...Matt...we believe you...
Idiot can’t walk the talk.
Maybe his boyfriend’s moving into Christianity’s messing with his mind.
So THAT’S the problem — The Won is actually an actor!
I understand. Like when Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn whined and moaned about Rudy Giuliani when he actually loved abortions and homosexuality as much as they did.
It does not concern me what a Hollywood queer says.
That goes for Palin as well. Whether or not, you like her, understand that liberals use her as a proxy for all conservatives in general.
