Jeb Awkwardly Asks Crowd to “Please Clap,” Gives Everyone Secondhand Embarrassment

Top Tier Gear USA


It’s sad enough that Jeb’s team is over there paying people $25 to fill seats at his appearances, otherwise hardly anyone would show up. Now he’s asking the crowd to clap at the moments of his speeches were it says “crowd applause” on the script.

Like this one where he says he’s going to create a more peaceful world… and no one reacts at all.

“Please clap.”


Talk about hard to watch. You could almost feel sorry for the guy… if he didn’t come from a family of evil warmongerers.


This awkwardness has gotten so awkward, it is spreading like a disease. People are actually catching secondhand embarrassment from Jeb:

In case you aren’t familiar with secondhand embarrassment, it is defined by Urban Dictionary as:

The personal embarrassment that one feels on account of and for another (i.e. a friend, a family member or a complete stranger) who is making a fool of him or herself. A person experiencing secondhand embarrassment feels as if they are doing the embarrassing action themselves, effectively putting themselves in the other person’s shoes.


Well, pay people to show up and tell them to clap. Sounds like a winning campaign strategy, doesn’t it?

At least, in lieu of a real campaign where you actually have the support of large numbers of people who want to see you run the country or something…

Then again, notice that even though Jeb’s as far down in the polls as he is, he’s still there. Rand was doing better and Rand dropped out. Is there something Jeb knows that the rest of us don’t?

Are we at the part of the horror film where everyone thinks the monster is defeated and walks away only to turn at the last minute for a terrifying jump scare? He did call himself the “joyful tortoise,” keeps a little turtle in his pocket, and hands out toy turtles at rallies.

You know who else uses a turtle for their mascot? Fabian socialists… Motto: “When I strike, I strike hard.”

  • If the speechmaker has to be told where the audience is supposed to clap, they both must be poorly trained in whatever kind of theater the script is for.

  • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

    It was cringe worthy, but I feel second hand embarrassment is better defined as empathy-of which I felt none.

  • MrApple

    Time to call it quits when even the people you are paying to be there aren’t paying attention to what you have to say.
