Jeb Bush thinks Donald Trump is afraid of him

Jeb Bush: Donald Trump Will Get 'Wiped Out in the General Election'
Jeb Bush: Donald Trump Will Get 'Wiped Out in the General Election'

The award for the week's most adorable Donald Trump analysis goes to Jeb Bush, who explained to CNN's Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday that the front-runner keeps saying mean things about him because he sees him as a threat. "The reason why he attacks me is he's scared of me," Bush said. "He's insecure. He doesn't believe that he can take me on, and while I'm doing worse than him in the polls, the simple fact is, why would he spend his time tearing down someone who's so low compared to him? This is because we're moving up, and I believe that he believes that we're the real challenge for his winning the nomination."

That might have been true at one point, but now it seems Trump is way more focused on Ted Cruz. So maybe attacking Bush is just habit at this point? Anyway, what's Barbara supposed to say when her son comes home all upset about getting called "low-energy" again?
