Melissa Benoist’s Awkward Response To Jeb Bush’s Creepy Supergirl Comment

If you recall, Jeb Bush in a public Q&A boyishly said that he thought Supergirl from the new CBS TV show was “pretty hot”. An answer that came out of the slightly unrelated question “Which superhero is your favorite.” Well now Benoist has had a chance to respond and she’s not all that interested in what Bush deems “pretty hot”.

“I heard about it…You know, I don’t know what to think about it.”

Frankly, we don’t know what to think about it either. But we do know that some thought should probably be kept to yourself. Especially when you’re a married man trying to become President of the United States. Benoist then added as if to smooth over the awkwardness of the whole scenario “Glad he’s excited to watch the show.” Sounds like he’s real excited if you know-what-we-mean.

Jeb, you silly bastard. Keep on keepin’ on.
