President Donald Trump’s sons, Eric and Donald Trump Jr., spent their Wednesday night convincing Twitter and Jeb Bush that, yes, they do love their dad.

These statements of paternal devotion came as a rebuke to Bush after he made what was interpreted as a jab at the Trump family during a speaking event at Yale University. According to the Yale Daily News, Bush said that after he lost to Trump in the 2016 South Carolina primary he returned home to children who “actually love me.”

The event was billed as a speech on “Restoring Conservatism in America,” but Bush took another shot at his former opponent, reportedly calling him a “Republican in basically name only.”
