Republican frontrunner Donald Trump turned to Twitter Friday night to target a handful of conservatives who have openly criticized his campaign as of late.
Trump, who has become known for his online tirades, first took aim at his favorite target: 2016 rival Jeb Bush.
Just watched Jeb's ad where he desperately needed mommy to help him. Jeb --- mom can't help you with ISIS, the Chinese or with Putin.— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1453510958.0
The billionaire businessman then targeted Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell and Glenn Beck. Both contributed to the National Review's special edition "Against Trump" issue published the night before.
.@BrentBozell, one of the National Review lightweights, came to my office begging for money like a dog. Why doesn't he say that?— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1453512752.0
The only reason irrelevant @GlennBeck doesn't like me is I refused to do his failing show - asked many times. Very few listeners - sad!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1453512797.0
Trump then turned his ire to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz who he is locked in a dead heat with in Iowa.
Cruz says I supported TARP, which gave $25 million to Goldman Sachs, the bank which loaned him the money he didn't disclose. Puppet!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1453512866.0
Cruz did not renounce his Canadian citizenship as a US Senator- only when he started to run for #POTUS. He could be Canadian Prime Minister.— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1453514663.0
Is Cruz honest? He is in bed w/ Wall St. & is funded by Goldman Sachs/Citi, low interest loans. No legal disclosure & never sold off assets.— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1453514921.0
While neither Beck, Bozell or Cruz fired back any responses online, Bush took advantage of the opportunity, tweeting a photo of his mother Barbara Bush wearing football pads.
"I'd be careful, Donald," he joked.
