Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush announced Jeb Can Fix It as his new campaign slogan in hopes of firing up his dwindling support. However, it only led to backlash and insults on social media.

“After seven years of incompetence, corruption, and gridlock in Washington, we need a president who can fix it,” declared Bush. “I can fix it. … After seven years of massive deficits, historic debt, and a president who vetoes defense spending because he wants more reckless spending, we need a president who fixes our budgetary mess. I can fix it.”

On Monday, Bush began a four-day trip through New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Florida after a disastrous debate performance on CNBC. He decided to “brush-off” all post-debate suggestions and stay true to himself.

But his attempt to rebrand his campaign resulted in ridicule.
