Eat Your Words Matt Damon: Matt Damon, ‘I’d Eat My Shoe If Jeb Could Name a Bush That Ever Even Walked Into a Public School’

As NewsBusters reported, former Florida governor Jeb Bush pounded public school activist Matt Damon in August for putting his kids in private school.

Damon gave CNN’s Jake Tapper a rather lame excuse for this in an online segment of their interview Friday while claiming, “I’d eat my shoe if he could name a Bush that ever even walked into a public school” …

Damon was perfectly illustrating the liberal credo of “Do As I Say, NOT As I Do!”

But there was more:

TAPPER: I don’t mean to bear down on your kids, I just…

DAMON: No, no, no, no, because that was a criticism, I think it was Jeb Bush who tweeted that, and then retracted it pretty quickly. Although I’d eat my shoe if he could name a Bush that ever even walked into a public school, but that’s another story. But, but no, I…

TAPPER: You might have to eat your shoe. I’m sure.

DAMON: Really? Maybe I will. Billy Bush, maybe he’ll call me up, “Man, I went to public school.”

Heck with Billy Bush.

The Miami Herald reported in 2002 that Jeb Bush initially attended the public Grady Elementary School in Houston before mother Barbara enrolled him in the private Kincaid School closer to where they lived.

Brother George W. attended public schools in Midland, Texas – Sam Houston Elementary and San Jacinto Junior High – before being enrolled at Kincaid when the family moved to Houston.

Would you like some salt for that shoe, Mr. Damon?
