Jeb Bush: We Know Dad's Feeling Better 'When He Starts Telling Semi-Dirty Jokes To The Nurse'

At least he's looking on the bright side.

Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush gave an update on the condition of his father, former President George H.W. Bush, saying his dad has started joking with his nurse again.

"[My] dad gets in the hospital kind of pretty regularly at 91, he's a little frail," the former Florida governor said during a campaign stop in Nevada on Friday. "But when he starts telling semi-dirty jokes to the nurse, we know he's on the rebound."

On Wednesday, the 41st president broke his C2 vertebrae in his neck while at his summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine. Doctors expect Bush to make a full recovery.
