Trump Trolls Jeb in 'Mother Knows Best' Video

Donald Trump is trolling Jeb Bush—big time. In a video that was released on the real estate mogul’s Instagram account on Monday, Trump suggests the former governor should get out of the race using none other than his own mother’s words.

The attack ad, which starts with the words “Barbara Bush’s advice to her son Jeb” proceeds to show the former first lady responding to a question from Matt Lauer in 2013 about whether she’d like to see her son run for president.

“No,” Bush answers in the clip, “I really don’t. I think it’s a great country. There are a lot of great families. There are other people out there that are very qualified, and we’ve had enough Bushes.”

While she's speaking the video shows clips of Trump on the campaign trail, and closes with the words, “Mother knows best Jeb!”

Even Barbara Bush agrees with me.

Of course, Barbara had a change of heart earlier this year. During a fundraising gala in Florida, while Jeb Bush was discussing what his mother once said about the idea of him running, she interrupted her son through a Skype appearance and said, “Jeb, it’s Mom. Listen, what do you mean, ‘too many Bushes’? … I changed my mind!”
