DES MOINES, Iowa — Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush says he’d kill the baby Adolf Hitler, if it were possible.

The former Florida governor says in a video excerpt of an interview with Huffington Post: “Hell, yeah, I would. Look, you gotta step up, man.”

Bush is talking about his new book, “Reply All.” He writes about email he received while governor, and the interviewer asked about some of the strangest emails he’s received.

Bush replies: “It said, ‘If you could go back in time and kill baby Hitler, would you? I need to know.'”
