Jeb Bush Denies He's Low-Energy: "I Work 16-Hour Days"

"If you want someone who can fix the damn things that exist in this country, I am your guy, and I don't think that's low-energy."

Jeb Bush says he doesn't care about Donald Trump calling him "low-energy," and cited a 16-hour work day as evidence of his energy levels.

"I don't care about, I don't care about that," the former Florida governor and Republican presidential candidate said on the show Wall Street Week over the weekend. "I work 16-hour days. My wife doesn't care about that, she could think of a lot worse thing to say..."

Asked it the comments gave him "extra energy," Bush responded in the affirmative.

"Yeah, it's an incredible privilege to run for president," he said.

"If you want someone who can fix the damn things that exist in this country, I am your guy, and I don't think that's low-energy," added Bush after saying he was not the candidate who disparages people. "I just don't go out of my way to tear people down to make myself look better."
