Trump Uses Outdated ‘Enough Bushes’ Clip to Attack Jeb Bush

Donald Trump‘s campaign made use of a famous clip of Barbara Bush saying she didn’t want to see Jeb Bush to run for president since there had been “enough Bushes” in the White House.

The attack ad popped up on Instagram Monday afternoon:

Even Barbara Bush agrees with me.

Trump’s pull quote of choice comes from a famous interview on The Today Show back in 2013, during which Barbara was asked whether or not she thought Jeb should run for office. At the time, she said, “He’s by far the best qualified man, but no… There are a lot of great families, and it’s not just four families or whatever. There are other people out there that are very qualified. We’ve had enough Bushes.”

Too bad it’s out of date, as Barbara later recanted her statement in February of this year during a conversation with Jeb over Skype.
