Florida Senator Goes on Full Attack Against GOP Frontrunner
Marco Rubio Saturday afternoon continued his attacks on Donald Trump, meeting the school yard bully on his own turf. The Florida Senator who just a week ago was demolished for being a "robot," after repeating his own scripted remarks over and over during a GOP debate came after the GOP frontrunner during Thursday's debate, and hasn't stopped since.
â€œYou guys wanna have a little fun today?â€ Rubio asked a crowd of supporters inÂ Kennesaw, Georgia. Looking at his cell phone, Rubio boasted that Trump was "pretty calm" after he "punched him around a little bit."
"Heâ€™s learning how to spell, I guess," Rubio continued, after many on social media and even Webster'sÂ mocked Trump for making several spelling errors while posting to Twitter Friday. "But heâ€™s flying around on Hair Force One and tweeting."
â€œSo hereâ€™s the one tweet he put out, he put out a picture of me having makeup put on me at the debate,â€ Rubio said.
â€œWhich is amazing me to me, that the guy with the worst spray tan in America is attacking me for putting on makeup,â€ he continued, gleefully mocking his nemesis.
"Donald Trump likes to sue people," Rubio announced, in what seemed to be a rehearsed line. "He should sue whoever did that to his face."
On Twitter, reactions were mixed.
Fox News' extremist religion columnist weighed in:
Marco Rubio makes fun of Trumpâ€™s face â€” because thatâ€™s what being presidential apparently looks like these days. https://t.co/x6Bxq7cWh6â€” toddstarnes (@toddstarnes) February 27, 2016

Rubio, staying above the fray: "Donald Trump likes to sue people, he should sue whoever did that to his face"â€” Trevor (@everprescott) February 27, 2016
Pundits: "Rubio needs to really hit Trump! Bully the bully!"â€” Matt Coldagelli (@mattcoldagelli) February 27, 2016
[Rubio hits Trump for 3 days]
Pundits: "A joke about his FACE?!" [faints]
So I opine that Rubio is demeaning himself by disparaging remark about Trump's face. Lots of likes from DT fans. Pot, meet kettle. #Ironyâ€” Matt Johnson (@mdjohnson9) February 27, 2016
