Former Florida Governor and likely 2016 Presidential hopeful Jeb Bush seemed ecstatic to meet rapper Ludacris at the Georgia State Capitol on Thursday. However, the “Move B–ch” artist didn’t exactly return the sentiment.
“I just came to see Ludacris,” Bush joked before a speech to state lawmakers, according to the Washington Post.
Some time during his appearance before the Georgia legislature, Jeb crossed paths with Ludacris, who was being formally recognized by the Georgia state House for his charity work through the “Ludacris Foundation,” which has given more than $1.5 million to various youth charities, nationwide.
Jeb then then tweeted a photo of his encounter with the rapper/actor:

“I appreciate the fact that there are people engaged in assuring that children gain a year’s worth of knowledge in a year’s time, that we have high expectations for every child, and the fact that Ludacris is involved in supporting charter schools here in Georgia is something to be admired,” Jeb told ABC News.
The rapper then used some adolescent wordplay to summarize his feelings for the Bush family.
When asked by a reporter which Bush was his favorite, he reportedly quipped: “The one outside.”

Clearly, Ludacris isn’t a fan of former President George W. Bush — or Jeb, apparently.
The rapper referred to President Bush as “mentally handicapped” in a 2008 campaign song titled “Politics” for then-candidate Barack Obama. In the song, he also referred to Hillary Clinton as “irrelevant.”
“Hillary hated on you, so that b–ch is irrelevant,” he rapped, also pleading with Obama to make him his new Vice President.
