These Are Jeb Bush’s Winning Selfie Techniques

1 minute read

Jeb Bush has learned a lot on the campaign trail, especially how to take a great selfie.

The former Florida Governor said Monday at a Florida event that taking selfies has now become “the 11th amendment of the Bill of Rights,” and that he takes them with fans “with great joy in [his] heart,” CNN reports.

Rule No. 1, according to Bush, is that you need long arms to get the good shot. “I will take over,” he said, if the person’s arm isn’t long enough.

He then elaborated on some other tried-and-true selfie tactics: “Just for the record, young people do it better than older people,” he said. “It’s cooler to do it diagonally rather than straight up, remember that. And it’s better to do it higher than lower, because you look skinnier. Am I right?”
