Jeb Bush had a painful moment on CNN Thursday night, when host John Berman tried to grill him on the really crucial question for Republicans who are trying to take down Donald Trump: “Would he make a better president than Hillary Clinton?”

Jeb tried to change the subject immediately: “I don’t think Hillary Clinton’s gonna be elected President of the United States — she’s not trustworthy.” To which Berman then had to object that Jeb didn’t actually answer the question.

“No, I’ve learned not to answer questions. That’s one of the things that you do now in political discourse,” Bush said, letting out a laugh. “You answer what you want to say.”

Sadly, the most Jeb could do was affirm his belief that he would be a far better president than Hillary Clinton.

The best answer that Berman could squeeze out of Jeb, against Trump, after repeated attempts and an earnest insistence that voters had a right to know the answer to this either/or question: “He is not qualified to be Commander-in-Chief of the United States of America’s greatest fighting force.”

Donald Trump Jr.

You've probably heard about Donald Trump's claim that his Democratic rival got "a big fat se onhot in the ass" before delivering a nearly perfect performance on a recently televised town hall. Or his more recent demand that Joe Biden get a "drug test" before their debate on Tuesday night. Having spent months lowering expectations for Biden, the Trumps are now busily defaming him as a junkie.

But that particular slur backfired spectacularly over the weekend when the Trump campaign posted a bizarre video of Don Jr. -- seemingly in a condition that called for rehab services. As his father might put it, "many people are saying" that the presidential spud looked and sounded like someone abusing a controlled substance. (His slurred message was disturbed too, something about an "army of able-bodied men and women" to intimidate voters).

It's both funny and sad to watch Don Jr. decompensate on Twitter. (More funny, though.)

Click and judge his condition for yourself.
