    Barbara Bush blamed a heart attack she suffered in 2016 in part on "angst" stemming from that year's presidential race where Donald Trump relentlessly hammered her son Jeb, according to a new biography of the former first lady, NBC News reported.

    Bush said she didn't understand why people, and women in particular, supported Trump, USA Today's Susan Page detailed in her upcoming biography "The Matriarch."

    Bush disliked Trump for decades and described him as "greedy, selfish and ugly," according to the book.
