Trump ad uses mama against her son: ‘Even Barbara Bush agrees with me . . . mother knows best!’


Jeb Bush can’t tell Donald Trump to “leave my mother out of this.”

Trump posted a 15-second video to his Instagram account Monday in which the Bush family matriarch says “we’ve had enough Bushes.”

Framed as “Barbara Bush’s advice to her son Jeb,” the video shows Jeb’s mother (whose husband and son have both ascended to the presidency) appearing on NBC’s “Today Show” in 2013.

At the start of the video, when asked about Jeb, “Would you like to see him run?” Bush responds quickly, “No.”

“I really don’t,” she said, adding, “There are other people out there who are really very qualified,” as images of Trump flash on screen.

“Mother knows best Jeb!” appears after Barbara’s clip, before cutting to Trump’s name and campaign slogan.

Trump eschews traditional advertising for short, impactful videos—frequently taking shots at the other candidates—posted to social media that take advantage of his over 3 million Facebook followers.

    Yes Jeb, mom knows best. Your RINO status indicates you are wasting our time and yours.

    But what would Barbara say if she had been asked, “Would you like to see Trump run?”

    I’m sure that even the demure Barbara would say, “Hell no!”

        And that means …. what exactly??

        When Queen Elizabeth II does not want her son to become King, that means something. Fortunately, however, we don’t live in a monarchy, so the opinion of the wife of a former President about her son means almost nothing.

          Keep thinking that way Mr Bush. Mother knows best. Ignore the obvious. Maybe it will go away. Old school thinking.

    Now we know Jeb is a fool for certain. What kind of fool discounts his Moms sound advice ? Jeb that’s who !
    Jeb: No matter what the Establishment has promised you: No matter how much your corporate sponsors and large campaign donors give you . Your not the Man the base will or shall support. In fact I would suggest you just withdraw “now “! Before you further embarrass yourself and your family. But mostly before you embarrass your mom who told you not to run stupid little boys never listen to their mothers. Your mom being the sole person with sound logic, judgement and wisdom in your family. Those poles placing you in second place; have given you false hope my friend .The liberal media has baited you into a bad situation which shall only get worse for you.
    This time the American people shall choose ,and neither establishment shall like our choice.

    Barbara Bush! Amazingly sophisticated First Lady. I can’t say enough. If only moochelle had just a snipet of class this woman has. As they say: You can take the Ho out of the hood, but you will never take the hood out of the Ho.
    Sorry moochelle, you were raised thinking the cracker owed you something. Well, are we even yet? You and family have BILKED the US taxpayers out of billions of dollars!
    Problem is this! In your eyes we will never settle!
