Jeb Bush took a swipe at President Trump during a talk at Yale University Tuesday, saying he goes home every day to children “who actually love me.”
The former Florida governor and Republican presidential candidate also joked that he was “still in therapy” from the 2016 election, the Yale Daily News reported.
Bush made the comments during a lecture titled “A Conversation with Jeb Bush: Restoring Conservatism in America.” The talk was sponsored by Yale’s The William F. Buckley Jr. Program.
Despite his swipes at Trump, Bush reportedly called for politicians to be more polite in their discourse.
Bush’s comments come shortly after first lady Melania Trump’s spokeswoman called for the media to stop mentioning the Trumps’ youngest son in the news.
While I know the media is enjoying speculation & salacious gossip, Id like to remind people there’s a minor child who’s name should be kept out of news stories when at all possible.

Stephanie Grisham tweeted the message amid adult-film star Stormy Daniels’s interview on “60 Minutes.” During the interview, Daniels shared new details of her alleged affair with President Trump. Daniels claims that the affair took place shortly after Melania Trump gave birth to her son.
Trump has denied the allegations.
Trump has four other children who are all adults. He is father to Donald Trump Jr., Eric and Ivanka with his first wife Ivana, and Tiffany with his second wife Marla Maples.
Eric Trump responded shortly after Bush’s comments were published.
“.@JebBush I actually love my father very much. #PleaseClap,” Trump tweeted, referencing Bush’s request for applause during a New Hampshire town hall event in 2016.
