Barbara Bush, former first lady and mother to Jeb and his brother former President George W. Bush, had called out women who support Trump for president on Friday.
"I don't know how women can vote for someone who said what he said about Megyn Kelly," Bush said on CBS' "This Morning," referring to Trump's various attacks on the Fox News anchor. "Money doesn't buy everything. It's accomplishments and what you're doing and giving. It's incomprehensible to me."
