GOP candidates former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and presidential front-runner Donald Trump spent Friday bashing one another on Twitter.

Trump who tweets at @realDonaldTrump and Bush at @JebBush threw jabs, even really personal ones, at each other. Trump responded to ads praising Jeb Bush’s efforts at the last GOP debate. “I have an idea for whose campaign is a disaster. Try using your last name & don’t be ashamed of it!” He continued: “Weak & ineffective @JebBush is doing ads where he shows his statement in the debate but not my response. False advertising!” — Donald J. Trump

Bush fired back, ripping Trump’s praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin, who this week called the real estate mogul “a very bright and talented man.” He claimed “a real leader would stand up, not suck up, to bullies and despots like Putin.”

Trump fired back claiming Bush has embarrassed himself & his family with his incompetent campaign for President. He threw a deadly blow when he said: “The last thing our country needs is another BUSH! Dumb as a rock!”

The two GOP presidential candidates have been engaging in a nasty back and forth that began during Tuesday night’s Republican debate. While Trump has insulted Bush before referring to him as “low energy” beta male, Bush has been hitting back harder than ever with a series of ads, interviews and social media posts aimed at painting Trump as a clownish candidate unfit for the Oval Office.

Bush in series of tweets said: “Trump says he gets his military advice from the shows.” He then asked: “Do you think it’s the Saturday or Sunday shows?”

Jeb goes on to ask via tweet if “Donald even know Putin backs Iran/Assad? Does he care? We must stand up to Putin not coddle him.” He claimed: “A true freedom-loving conservative wouldn’t be flattered by praise from a despot like Putin.” “The fact of the matter is, @realDonaldTrump doesn’t have the judgment to be Commander-in-Chief,” Bush tweeted. He also said he was the only one to stand up to Trump’s “chaotic, irresponsible foreign policy at the debate,” while sharing links in his tweets.
