What the actual hell?

Jeb Bush may be in the running to be the next President of the United States, but we don't think his stance on a certain group of people is going to earn him many votes.

Apparently, back in 1995 the former Florida Governor wrote a book entitled Profiles in Character where he said that unwed mothers should be publicly shamed…

That's right!

The Republican even titled the chapter "The Restoration of Shame" where he implores society to mock people who have sex outside of marriage, writing:

"One of the reasons more young women are giving birth out of wedlock and more young men are walking away from their paternal obligations is that there is no longer a stigma attached to this behavior, no reason to feel shame. Many of these young women and young men look around and see their friends engaged in the same irresponsible conduct. Their parents and neighbors have become ineffective at attaching some sense of ridicule to this behavior. There was a time when neighbors and communities would frown on out of wedlock births and when public condemnation was enough of a stimulus for one to be careful."

Wow.

Well we're glad he's getting his wish because we're certain that he's gonna be shamed himself for his hateful opinion.

How can someone who wants to be the leader of other people seriously think like that??
