Donald Trump Jr. unleashed on former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush Thursday afternoon after he brutally insulted the Trump family this past week.
Earlier this week Bush made a sick comment saying that he has kids who “actually love me” – a statement interpreted as a jab at the president.
“Jeb! I love everything about my father,” Trump Jr. tweeted Thursday. “I love that he’s a fighter, I love that he has guts, I love that he’s President (all those things you’re not).”
Jeb! I love everything about my father. I love that he’s a fighter, I love that he has guts, I love that he’s President (all those things you’re not)
Also love that he learned enough about politics in a few weeks to dismantle you piece by piece despite it being your life’s work https://t.co/4fcnA1AgAa

The president’s oldest son also said of his father: “Also love that he learned enough about politics in a few weeks to dismantle you piece by piece despite it being your life’s work.”
The Yale Daily News published a story Wednesday about Bush’s appearance on campus this week where, according to the student newspaper, Bush said he returned home to children who “actually love me” after a disappointing finish in the 2016 primary in South Carolina.
It was after that primary that Bush dropped out of the race.
The paper reported that the comment was met with “raucous laughter from the crowd” and several audience members said they “interpreted Bush’s comment as a jab at Trump.”
Another Trump son, Eric Trump, also tweeted at Bush: “[email protected] I actually love my father very much. #PleaseClap.”

The “please clap” dig is in reference to video that went viral during the campaign of Bush asking a New Hampshire audience to applaud him – something critics used to illustrate the less-than-enthusiastic response his campaign received.
Trump and Bush famously sparred during the campaign, with the then-New York businessman dismissing Bush as “low energy.” Bush argued Trump would be a “chaos” president. Bush did not endorse or support Trump in the general election.
