Jeb Bush calls on Republicans to challenge Trump

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush says Donald Trump should face a Republican primary challenge in 2020.

Bush, who ran for president in 2016, told CNN the party “ought to be a given a choice.”

“I think someone should run. Just because Republicans ought to be given a choice,” he said. “To have a conversation about what it is to be a conservative I think is important...And our country needs to have competing ideologies that people -- that are dynamic, that focus on the world we’re in and the world we’re moving towards rather than revert back to a nostalgic time.”

But Bush acknowledged it would be difficult for anyone to defeat Trump because “he has a strong, loyal base” and “it’s hard to beat a sitting president.”

The comments were made in excerpts released by CNN of an interview on The Axe Files, set to air in full Saturday.

Senate Judiciary Committee chair Lindsey Graham is asking for all documents and communications related to discussions about removing Donald Trump from office under the 25th amendment.

Graham made the request in a letter Friday to Attorney General William Barr, the Washington Post reported.

Top law enforcement officials discussed using the 25th amendment, which allows a president to be removed if he is unfit to perform his duties, former FBI acting director Andrew McCabe has said.

Graham wrote that he would investigate “what amounts to a coup,” according to the Post.

Beto O’Rourke belonged to the oldest group of computer hackers in US history when he was a teenager, he told Reuters in a new interview.

O’Rourke was part of Cult of the Dead Cow, which released tools that allowed ordinary people to hack Windows computers, and coined the term “hacktivism.”

Jeb remains LIVID that Trump “stole” the nomination away from him. He must have a dart board in his Man Cave with a photo of the POTUS. The Day Maid knows to ignore the sounds of Jeb’s Primal Screaming often heard from behind those locked, windowless doors. She calls it “Mister Bush’s Crying Room”.

Mr. Bush, your brand of conservatism has been weighed, measured, and found wanting. I will never vote GOPe as long as I’m around.
