Donald Trump launches bizarre late-night Twitter taunts at Jeb Bush
Real-estate mogul Donald Trump took a few unusual Twitter jabs at his Republican presidential rival Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor, on Monday night.
The Republican front-runner also retweeted a supporter who claimed that Bush's mother was a Trump supporter.
"So cute!" Trump added.
Among the other Trump jabs was a shot at what Trump called the disastrous record of Bush's father, former President George H.W. Bush, and brother, former President George W. Bush. Trump also retweeted a supporter mocking Jeb Bush for attacking Trump while sagging in the polls of the GOP primary.
Earlier in the evening, Bush bashed Trump during a Fox News interview. Speaking on "The Kelly File," Bush brought up Trump's Democratic past and said Trump was "not a serious candidate and he would be, I think, a disaster as the party's nominee."
"He'll never be president," Bush said of Trump.
Bush campaign spokeswoman Kristy Campbell responded to Trump's tweets by suggesting the billionaire businessman was "Twitter-drunk":
Out on Twitter there arose such a clatter, late night twitter-drunk Donald is back at it! https://t.co/yyTfQN3IM8— Kristy Campbell (@kristymcampbell) December 29, 2015
