Last weekend, at the liberal Netroots Nation conference, Black Lives Matter protesters took over while Martin O’Malley and Bernie Sanders were on stage. O’Malley tried to appease them by saying “Black lives matter, white lives matter, all lives matter"—only to be booed down and later forced to apologize.

On Thursday, A Yahoo! News reporter asked Jeb Bush whether O’Malley should have apologized.

Bush rolled his eyes and laughed, saying, “No, for crying out loud, no.”

"We're so uptight and so politically correct now that we apologize for saying 'lives matter?'" a baffled Bush asked. "Life is precious. It's a gift from God. I frankly think that it's one of the most important values that we have. I know in the political context it's a slogan, I guess. Should he have apologized? No. If he believes that white lives matter, which I hope he does, then he shouldn't have apologized to a group that seemed to disagree with it. Gosh."
