Curious Jeb: ‘I’ve Got a Monkey Brain…It’s Fertile, It’s Growing’ [VIDEO]

Poor Jeb Bush. Just when you think he might be gaining a little bit of traction and start shedding his “low energy” persona, he does or says something stupid to knock himself back down a notch.

Sounding like something coming out of a Saturday Night Live skit, Jeb! admitted that he has a “monkey brain” and called it a positive trait of his because that way he doesn’t come across as scripted and robotic as Marco Rubio — or something.

“I’ve got a monkey brain to be honest with you,” Jeb! told an audience in New Hampshire on Sunday. “I can’t say the same thing — like — I can’t say it. My mind works differently, it’s not like a…message discipline is not my strength. I admit it,” he said.

“Something goes on in there, it’s fertile, it’s growing, it’s challenging. I always question myself. I’m intellectually curious. You know, it’s not all scripted,” he contended. “I think that’s actually a strength to be President of the United States because you cannot script and be commander-in-chief.”

Hmmm….He’s curious and has a monkey brain. Maybe we can start calling him “Curious George.” No, wait, that won’t work because George is a name already taken by other Bush family members. Maybe “Curious Jeb” would be a better fit.
