- Jeb Bush says "hell yeah" he'd time travel to kill baby Hitler, given the chance
- Bush was asked the question by The Huffington Post
Washington (CNN)Given the opportunity, Jeb Bush says he'd go back in time and kill baby Hitler.
"Hell yeah, I would!" the former Florida governor told The Huffington Post. "You gotta step up, man."
Bush said he knows there's no way to predict how the course of human history would change -- and whether World War II could have been avoided -- had the eventual German dictator never escaped infancy.
The question came from a poll from New York Times magazine.
"It could have a dangerous effect on everything else, but I'd do it -- I mean, Hitler," Bush said.
