A college student in Nevada had some harsh words Wednesday for Jeb Bush, a likely 2016 Republican presidential candidate and former governor of Florida.
“Your brother created ISIS,” she said after a spouting a red-faced, sophomoric ‘question’ at Bush after a town-hall meeting and while other audience members were asking for autographs.
The student, identified by the New York Times as 19-year-old Ivy Ziedrich, who attends the University of Nevada, Reno, and a member of the Young Democrats, bashed George Bush for a full 30 seconds before Bush realized that she didn’t really have a question to ask.
“The threat of ISIS was created by the Iraqi Coalition Authority which ousted the entire government of Iraq. It was when 30,000 individuals who were part of the Iraqi military … were forced out. They had no employment. They had no income. Yet they were left with access to all of the same arms and weapons,” Ziedrich said.
When she was done, Bush asked, “Is that a question?” he asked.
Zeidrich told Bush not to be pedantic to her before launching in to another tirade about how “pointless wars” and “the idea of American exceptionalism” were to blame for the creation of ISIS and the deaths of American soldiers.
“Why are you spouting nationalist rhetoric to get us involved in more wars?” She asked.
Bush replied by saying he respectfully disagreed, and that when America completely withdrew its troops from Iraq during the Obama administration it allowed the Islamic State to gain a foothold in large areas of Iraq and Syria.
“Look, you can rewrite history all you want. But the simple fact is that we are in a much more unstable place because American pulled back,” Bush said before turning away and leaving.
