'Please Clap': Is This the Most Cringeworthy Moment of the 2016 Campaign?
An awkward moment at a Jeb Bush town hall event is going viral after the former Florida governor asked his supporters to clap for him.
It came as the Republican candidate was making a stump speech in New Hampshire.
A line he delivered about how "he won't be out there blowhardin'" and the next president should be "a lot quieter" did not get the enthusiastic reaction he apparently expected.
After a brief pause, he deadpanned,"Please clap."
The audience then clapped, but the moment has been widely panned - including by Jimmy Fallon on last night's "Tonight Show" - and led to a #PleaseClap trend on social media.
