Jeb Bush’s campaign is still in the gutters and his feeble hits upward at Donald Trump is not paying off in the polls. So Jeb has turned to his mother, former First Lady Barbara Bush, for help. In an ad, Mrs. Bush talks about her son Jeb as the best Republican to run for president, and in the process she offered a slight hit at the Donald.
“When push comes to shove, people are going to realize Jeb has real solutions. Rather than talking about how popular they are, how great they are, he’s doing it because he sees a huge need and it’s not being filled by anybody,” she said in the video. “Of all the people running, he seems to be the one who can solve the problems. I think he’ll be a great president.”
Donald Trump however, is hitting back. And he is using his favorite weapon – Twitter – to fire his shots. In a tweet, Trump slammed Bush for using his mommy to fight his fights. – “Just watched Jeb’s ad where he desperately needed mommy to help him. Jeb — mom can’t help you with ISIS, the Chinese or with Putin”
