Although Jeb Bush has said that he is right where he wants to be, in the back of the pack, he trotted out his mama, Barbara Bush, in a new commercial in an attempt to give him a boost ahead of the Iowa caucus.
It was an interesting move, to say the least, especially since Jeb’s own mother said in 2013 that she did not think Jeb should run for the presidency. At that time, Barbara said, “I think it’s a great country. 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 and we’ve had enough Bushes.”
The American people would agree, Mrs. Bush and the polls show it.
Enter Donald Trump.
Once The Donald caught wind of the commercial, he sent out a tweet that will make Jeb live to regret his latest attempt to bolster his image.
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.

If Jeb needs his mama to bail him out in a primary, if his attempts at playing tough with Trump and others have done very little to reassure the American people about his ability to be commander-in-chief, then how in the world is he going to lead this country as President of the United States
The exclamation mark left your campaign a long time ago, Jeb…not that there was ever any real excitement surrounding it. This commercial put the icing on the cake. Pack it up and go home.
