Monday’s prank is an escalation of the increasingly bitter feud between Rubio and the GOP front-runner.
CNN reported that Trump sent Rubio a case of “Trump Ice Natural Spring Water”, two towels with Trump’s slogan, “Make America Great Again”, and bumper stickers. “Enjoy!” CNN has the details.
Marco Rubio is on the way up in almost all the major polls, rising to fourth place at 11 percent behind real estate mogul Donald Trump, who got 24 percent, Carly Fiorina, 15 percent, and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, 14 percent.
Rubio poked fun at himself during the most recent GOP presidential debate by pointing out that he had water bottles with him. The Rubio campaign didn’t respond to a request for comment.
The choice of drinking water as a gift for Rubio presumably is a reference to his speech in 2013 in response to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address, where Rubio paused for a sip of water, an action that apparently thrilled the mainstream press (see video below). On MSNBC, he said of Rubio: “He sweats more than any young person I’ve ever seen in my life… I never saw anything like this with him with the water”, he told a crown in South Carolina last week. Trump is still the leader but his numbers may be slipping, even worse he may have topped out. “This is water the way it was meant to be”. The label reads, “Water for the Body & Soul …”
Trump has since argued that the Florida lawmaker is too green for the White House given his youth and immaturity in office.
“It is what it is”, Rubio said. “He’s never there, meaning he doesn’t work or he’s too lazy to go back and vote“. Rubio did attack Trump for not being well-informed on the issues after the second GOP debate.
