2016 presidential hopeful Jeb Bush loves hispanic culture. He was born in Texas, governed Florida, lived two years in Venezuela, speaks fluent spanish and married the Mexican-born Columba Bush. He basically might as well be spanish, right? Except he isn't. He is super white.

But on a 2009 voter-registration application, Bush indicated that he was Hispanic, baffling his spokesperson and bringing political bloggers across the country to sexual completion.

Twitter, which was made for this kind of revelation, is having a field day. Here are some of the best responses:
