Jeb Bush Thinks Supergirl Is 'Kind Of' Hot, Informs Those At Campaign Event

Bah, Jeb.

Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush had an awkward response Wednesday during a Q&A at the Libre Forum in Las Vegas when he was asked to name his favorite superhero. The answer: Batman. The addendum no one asked for: Bush has eyes for "Supergirl" star Melissa Benoist.

"I saw that "Supergirl" is on TV,” Bush, the former Florida governor, said at the event, sponsored by the Koch brothers-backed Libre Initiative. “I saw it when I was working out this morning. There's an ad promoting ‘Supergirl.’ She looked kind of -- she looked pretty hot."

The Guardian’s Sabrina Siddiqui noted Bush quipped that his response would "make news," probably because it's a supremely odd moment that adds to his streak of shirt-unbuttoning and awkward high-fives.
