Jeb: We Are Too ‘Politically Correct’ When People Apologize for Saying White Lives Matter

Thursday in New Hampshire, when asked about Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley apologizing for saying, “Black lives matter, white lives matter, all lives matter,” after being booed at the Netroots Nation convention last week, Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said he should not apologize, “if he believes that white lives matter.”

Bush said, “We’re so uptight and so politically correct now that we apologize for saying ‘lives matter? Life is precious. It’s a gift from God…. Should he apologize? No. If he believes that white lives matter, which I hope he does, then he shouldn’t have apologized to a group that seemed to disagree with it.”
