Jeb! Jeb. The last searing image I have in my mind of Jeb Bush is him grimacing while murmuring “MacBook Pro bay-bee.” But on Wednesday night, Jeb was reanimated from the dead by the spirit of William F. Buckley Jr. to make a sad joke that, unlike Donald Trump, Jeb returns home every day to children “who actually love me.”

The adult children that Trump presumably does not go home to, Newly Single Donald Jr. and Eric, rushed to their father’s defense:

Don’t you ever impugn these big boys’ love for their father or else you will get it, mister! (Very conspicuously, neither Ivanka nor Tiffany have proven on Twitter to Jeb that they actually love their father.)

Technically, though, Donald Jr. is correct about one thing—Jeb is altogether a miserable failure.
