Jeb Bush Clearly Has No Understanding of 'Homeland' or TV Ratings

Jeb Bush was recently caught by some interviewers working for Showtime who interviewed him about where he’d like to show up on the Showtime channel, and here is his answer:

So, Jeb Bush, obviously well aware of his family values voters and his desperate need to lure xenophobic bigots aware from Donald Trump, would like to appear on Homeland in a way that is “G rated”, because Homeland definitely has any plots that would be considered “G rated”, but in which he also gets to “kill a terrorist, with my bare hands.” which is definitely something that could be depicted in a kid-friendly way, first of all, and second of all is definitely something people would see and decide “that guy pretending to kill a person in a brutally intimate way is definitely the man I want to lead our country.”*

What could have been a fun, softball question became a combination of deeply uncomfortable with a lingering aftertaste of “that’s not how that works. That’s not how any of this works.” about it. Well done, Jeb!

*Yes, I know some people would think that. Please don’t remind me.
