Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush was interviewed on CNN by host Jake Tapper and continued his double standard between his brother and 9/11 and Hillary Clinton and Benghazi. Tapper asked Bush to explain himself, but the candidate failed at doing so.

“Obviously Al-Qaeda was responsible for the terrorist attack of 9/11,” Tapper said. “But how do you respond to critics who ask if your brother and his administration bear no responsibility at all, how do you then make the jump that President Obama and Secretary Clinton are responsible for what happened at Benghazi?”

After Tapper asked that question, Bush struggled to offer a clear explanation of his double standard. No wonder why his campaign is struggling.

“Well I, it’s the question on Benghazi which is hopefully will now finally get the truth to it, is: was that, was the place secure?” he said, clearly flustered. “They had a responsibility, Department of State, to have proper security.”
