Jeb Bush Finally Answers The Question, 'Would You Kill Baby Hitler?'

Last month, The New York Times Magazine asked its readers, "If you could go back and kill Hitler as a baby, would you do it?"

An overwhelming majority of its readers said yes, they would go back and murder the baby who would one day become one of the worst human beings of all time.

Presidential candidate Jeb Bush had been asked the question via email about a month ago but did not make his official opinion known until the Huffington Post asked him on camera while riding on his bus in New Hampshire.

Bush said,

Hell yeah, I would! You gotta step up, man.

In case you're wondering, here's what Hitler looked like as a baby:


While he enthusiastically said he would kill baby Hitler, he did also acknowledge that, like "Back to the Future" says, changing the past could have unknown consequences on the future.

Bush added,

The problem with going back in history and doing that, as we know from the series -- what's the series with Michael J. Fox called? The 'Back to the Future' series -- is that it could have a dangerous effect on everything else. But I'd do it. I mean -- [it is] Hitler.

So now we know what Bush would do. What would you do? Would you kill baby Hitler if you had the chance?
