The popular dance continues on and shows no signs of slowing down.
As of Tuesday night, the former Florida governor was polling nationally at 4 percent, good enough to place him sixth among the remaining Republican candidates, and though he’s done his best to make inroads on the national conscience—by asking his fans for support he can hear, by enlisting the help of his brother for the upcoming South Carolina primary, and by tweeting out a photo of a Jeb Bush-inscribed gun that started a viral meme on Tuesday—he still hasn’t gained much traction.
So now he’s trying to something else. He’s going to dab and see how that works out for him.
Bush has joined Hillary Clinton in the art of political dabbing, while, at the same time, potentially joining this guy in having the ability to disappoint most everybody with whom he comes into contact.
While there’s little doubt Bush was humoring a young fan who asked him to pose this way—and for that, Bush should be commended—there’s almost no chance that his dabbing moment won’t be used for Twitter mockery. Oh wait, it’s already happening.
Jeb Bush may have just put the dab out of its misery, but I’ve gotten my hopes up before
