Donald Trump is at it again. That is attacking his Republican rivals via Twitter. This time he focused his ire on Jeb Bush. 

In a series of tweets Friday, Trump called his 2016 rival Jeb Bush "dumb as a rock" and said his campaign was incompetent. 

Bush, for his part, has also been giving as much as he's been getting on Twitter. He's even comparing Trump's ISIS strategy to that of Hillary Clinton's.

But of course, this is a presidential election so some mudslinging is to be expected. Hey, at least it's kind of entertaining this time around.
