Jeb needs to update his twitter bio

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.
