Barbara Bush, “I’m sick of him.” She said in an interview, broadcast Friday on CBS.
The Bush clan matriarch, dubbed Jeb Bush’s new “hatchet woman” by the New York Post, is not very keen on the man who has called her son “low energy” these past months.
“He doesn’t give many answers to how he would solve problems. He sort of makes faces and says insulting things,” Barbara Bush said about Donald Trump, one of her son’s rivals for the Republican presidential nomination. “He’s said terrible things about women, terrible things about the military. I don’t understand why people are for him, for that reason.”
Trump immediately responded on Twitter with
“Wow, Jeb Bush, whose campaign is a total disaster, had to bring in mommy to take a slap at me. Not nice!” Trump tweeted.
“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,” Trump tweeted then.
