Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says rival Jeb Bush had to run to his “mommy” for help.
 
“Wow, Jeb Bush, whose campaign is a total disaster, had to bring in mommy to take a slap at me,” Trump tweeted Saturday morning. “Not nice!”
 

 
{mosads}Barbara Bush, former first lady and mother to former President George W. Bush as well as Jeb Bush, on Friday called it “unbelievable” that women could support Trump.
 
“I don’t know how women can vote for someone who said what he said about [Fox News anchor] Megyn Kelly,” she said on CBS’ “This Morning.”
 
“Money doesn’t buy everything. It’s accomplishments and what you’re doing and giving. It’s incomprehensible to me.”
 
The two had previously clashed in January, when Bush swiped at Trump in a campaign ad for her son.
 
“Rather than talking about how popular they are or how great they are, he’s doing it because he sees a huge need and it’s not being filled by anybody,” she said, likely referring to Trump.
 
Trump responded at the time with a similar tweet, saying Jeb Bush “desperately needed mommy to help him.”
