Jeb Bush gives advice on how to take a 'selfie' in South Florida


While in West Palm Beach on Monday, Jeb Bush took a break from the serious topics of ISIS and bashing Donald Trump to give some tips on how to take a selfie.

In response to an audience member who asked Bush a question about the role of "selfies" as a candidate, Bush gave a humorous lesson to the crowd:

“The selfie is now the 11th amendment of the bill of rights. It’s inspired by the framers and founders apparently. It is a requirement that you take one and I do it with great joy in my heart. Look, it wasn’t that long ago people wanted signatures on things. And now, ‘I want my damn selfie. I’m not leaving until I get it.’ So we spend a lot of quality time doing that and hoping person has a long enough arm or I will take over. Just for the record young people do it better than older people," he said to the crowd, which ranged from high school students to senior citizens.

"We will go through a little training class here. It's cooler to do it diagonally rather than straight up. Remember that. It’s better to do it higher than lower because you look skinnier. Am I right?”

Bush got mobbed for selfies after his speech at the Forum Club in West Palm Beach and at Chico's restaurant in Hialeah.
