Donald Trump Jr. isn’t playing around.
After failed presidential candidate Jeb Bush made a disturbing reference about President Trump’s children, Junior put Jeb! in his place.
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush’s psychiatrist wants him to move past the 2016 presidential election.
“I’m not going to talk about the 2016 election,” Bush joked on Tuesday in a talk sponsored by the The William F. Buckley, Jr. Program at Yale. “I’m still in therapy.”
But that didn’t stop him from taking shots at President Donald Trump, his opponent in the 2016 Republican presidential primary. At one point, Bush described the current president as “Republican in basically name only.” And earlier in his speech, Bush said that after the 2016 Republican primary in South Carolina, he returned home to children who “actually love me.” His comment was met with raucous laughter from the crowd, and several audience members interviewed after the event said they interpreted Bush’s comment as a jab at Trump.
Responses from Trump Jr. and Eric…
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

Fox News has more:
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.
Trumps 1, Bush 0?
Sorry, not sorry, Jeb!
