Rubio vs. Trump devolves into a fight over sweat, urine, 'choker' and 'con man'

26

February

Ladies and gentlemen, your GOP presidential primary:

Marco Rubio this morning at a rally in Dallas:

“He called me Mr. Meltdown. Let me tell you something, last night in the debate during one of the breaks, two of the breaks, he went backstage and he was having a meltdown. First he had one of those makeup things applying around his mustache because he had one of those sweat mustaches. Then, then he asked for a full length mirror, I don’t know why because the podium goes up to here (gestures to stomach). I don’t know why maybe to make sure his pants weren’t wet.”

On TV news shows Rubio repeatedly mocked Trump as a "con man."

Donald Trump at a news conference in Fort Worth, where he got the endorsement of Chris Christie and will hold a rally.

“He’s a mess," never seen someone sweat so much.

“He really defrauded Florida, the people of Florida,” by getting Senate seat and then running for president.

“Once a choker, always a choker.”

Trump then held a rally, lashing out even harder at Rubio, talking more about sweat and choking. Trump then got a water bottle and yelled, "It's Rubio!" referring to Rubio's water grab during his State of the Union response. Trump spilled the water then threw the bottle.
