Former Florida governor Jeb Bush took a swipe at Hillary Clinton for her defensive, if not downright evasive, tactics going into the 2016 presidential race.

“I don’t have a protective bubble like Mrs. Clinton does,” Bush fired.

“I don’t have town hall meetings or little roundtable discussions where I pick who gets to come and I screen the questions and the press has to behave a certain way,” Bush told Fox News' Megyn Kelly.

“I’m having fun doing this," he said, "and I think it’s better for candidates to be out amongst them.”

When asked if he feels concerned about the polls, Bush dismissed them as “irrelevant” and said that “everybody needs to take a chill pill” until the actual election gets closer.

“The polls are totally irrelevant,” Bush told Kelly.

“I’m not a candidate yet,” he laughed. “I think everybody needs to take a chill pill on the polls ‘til it gets closer.”
