Now that Barbara Bush is on the campaign trail with her allegedly beloved son, a whole lot about Jeb Bush is finally starting to make sense. Because according to the duo’s most recent set of interviews, there is no one who makes Sad Jeb quite as sad as his very own mother.

Jeb clearly adores his mom—some might say to an alarming degree (some people like me, for instance). And Barb clearly feels... something for Jeb. Whether it’s pity, casual indifference, or active contempt is impossible to say. One thing is for certain, however: When it comes to bullying and emasculating Jeb, Barbara Bush is queen.

So Donald Trump—take a seat. Let the master show you how it’s done.
