Trump Trashes Barbara Bush: Jeb Rolling Out Mommy ‘Not Nice’

Screen Shot 2016-02-06 at 12.59.53 PMFor the past few days, Jeb Bush has been fighting back against his low poll numbers by calling in reinforcements. Specifically, he called in his mother, beloved former First Lady (and First Mom?) Barbara Bush. He has long tried to distance himself from his borderline-dynastic family, but apparently gave up, and Donald Trump took notice of the new game plan.

It would be hard not to take notice if a widely-adored nonagenarian was taking thinly-veiled shots at you, too, of course. Yesterday, in between bemoaning how well she had raised her younger son and claiming that as the reason the media ignores him, she condemned Trump for being braggadocious and making, in her estimation, too many faces.

Trump took a risk and clapped back at her passive-aggressively, targeting and blaming the “too-polite” presidential candidate instead of the great matriarch.
