I don’t know if Jeb Bush took his candidacy off life support — I tend to think not. But he had the single best moment in this debate: when he turned to Trump and said, “You can’t insult your way to the presidency.”
The crowd went wild.
Jeb’s first punch was to call Trump the “chaos-candidate.” It’s a good line because it is true. The trouble is voters may prefer chaos to the status quo.
