Jeb Bush is still running for president, according to his Twitter bio

Does he know something we don’t?

Recently, presidential hopeful Jeb Bush finally ended his disappointing campaign. Or did he? According to Jeb’s Twitter account, he’s still a candidate for the presidency of the United States.

Indeed, 10 days after he suspended campaign operations, he’s still calling himself a candidate for the highest office in the land—perhaps in the sense that, say, Bart Simpson and Deez Nuts are candidates for student council president in most high school elections. 


Maybe this is some elaborate plot. Maybe, just maybe, Bush has one more trick up his sleeve that will allow him to make a last-minute comeback and totally beat out Donald Trump

Or maybe Bush is just sad, staring longingly at his phone screen late into the unfeeling night, wondering whether he should man up and revise his Twitter bio or not. We feel your pain, dude—we even sent you some gifts, which hopefully you’ve received by now—but sometimes the first step to self-affirmation is acceptance.
