In a new video released on Instagram, Donald Trump implores Jeb Bush supporters to "wake up" in a comical spin on a sleep-aide commercial mocking Bush as "low-energy."
Trump, who is fond of selling himself as the only presidential candidate not beholden to special interests, may not have the same fundraising prowess of his Republican rival with deep Wall Street ties but the billionaire candidate is using his celebrity to go negative against Bush without spending a single campaign dollar.
At a Bush rally in New Hampshire last week, a woman was filmed nodding off behind the former Florida governor as he spoke. Trump, who has repeatedly blasted Bush on the campaign trail as "low-energy," featured video of the woman sleeping while Bush campaigned in the new campaign video with a narrator asking "Having trouble sleeping at night? Too much energy? Need some low energy?"
According to Trump, Jeb is the answer "for all your sleeping needs."
And as for the woman featured in Trump's ad dosing off at a recent Bush rally, Jeb! tweeted a picture of himself with the tired attendee whom he said had been kept up for a 12 hour shift. So much for Bush's assertion that Americans should simply "work longer hours" to spur 4 percent economic growth.
