Stone, a former informal adviser to Trump, defended Trump on Friday on Instagram after Trump bashed the former first lady.

Trump, in an interview with The Washington Times on Thursday, bashed Bush, saying she was “nasty to him” and “look what I did to her sons,” referring to his defeat of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) in the 2016 Republican presidential primary.

In the recently released book “The Matriarch: Barbara Bush and the Making of a Dynasty,” written by USA Today journalist Susan Page, Bush referred to Trump as a "symbol of greed" and “blamed Donald Trump for her heart attack.”

Stone echoed some of Trump’s favorite attack line in his Instagram post, calling Jeb Bush Barbara Bush’s “entitled low energy son” while mocking her for her sickness at the end of her life.

“Nasty, rude, vindictive, entitled, self-important - that’s the woman I had several unpleasant encounters with,” Stone wrote Friday.
