Jeb Bush tried to draw some attention away from potential 2016 rival Hillary Clinton on Thursday by letting the press watch him eat at a Politics and Pie event in Concord, New Hampshire. But just as you don’t win friends with salad, you don’t win the news cycle with baked goods. As Bush ate a piece of blueberry pie, a reporter asked about Clinton’s legendary trip to Chipotle earlier this week. “Do I go there? Yeah, I go there,” Bush said as he took a bite. “Drive my own car. Park my own car. Get out of my own car.” He added, “We normally cook our own Mexican food at home — it’s pretty good.” Jeez, enough about your cooking, Jeb. So if you were at Chipotle right now, what would you order?
