Jeb Bush Has to Tell New Hampshire Crowd ‘Please Clap’

Screen Shot 2016-02-03 at 2.47.45 PMPoor Jeb Bush; the Republican presidential contender had to tell the audience of a New Hampshire event when they were supposed to clap during his speech Tuesday.

The New York Times was present at the event, and reported on the embarrassing moment:

Speaking to a crowd at the Hanover Inn near the Vermont border during his final stop of the day, Mr. Bush finished a fiery riff about protecting the country as commander in chief – “I won’t be out here blowharding, talking a big game without backing it up,” he said – and was met with total silence.

“Please clap,” he said, sounded defeated.

The crowd obediently clapped.
