Rapper, producer, and record executive DJ Khaled has some chicken soup for Jeb Bush's soul. Khaled, of "I'm on One" and "All I Do Is Win" fame, has been rapping and producing for over a decade now, but has recently become popular among a different crowd for his ostentatious, and often relentlessly positive, videos on Snapchat and other social media platforms, and his popularization of a key emoji.
The former Florida governor and presidential candidate has struggled to project a personality that's any less flat than his recent poll numbers. But the race for the presidency is far from over, and maybe Jeb just needs a pick-me-up. DJ Khaled, though a self-avowed Obama supporter, lent his words of inspiration to the Bush campaign during a segment for Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday night.
"Jeb Bush, I appreciate you," Khaled said. "You're a leader. You're a Bush."
"You gotta water your plants, Jeb Bush," Khaled continued. "And cocoa butter. Live life smooth, use cocoa butter. Have a glow, always use cocoa butter. Major key."
Bush, seemingly boosted by Khaled's message, responded on Twitter:
It is unclear whether DJ Khaled's inspiration (or Jeb's apples) will do the trick, but here's hoping that Bush is asked about his use of cocoa butter during Thursday night's GOP debate.
