Trump and Rubio War of Words–and Water–Deepens

Republican Presidential hopeful Donald Trump mocked Florida Sen. Marco Rubio at a campaign event in Texas by spraying water on stage.

A war of words—and apparently water—has broken out between the two following Thursday’s Republican debate.

During Thursday’s debate a fiery Marco Rubio went hard after Donald Trump in the debate, lacerating the front-runner’s position on immigration, his privileged background, his speaking style and more.

On Friday it continued. “You want to have a little fun?” Rubio asked a crowd in Dallas. “What does Donald Trump do when things go wrong? He takes to Twitter, I have them right here.” After which Rubio continued to read several of Trump’s tweets pointing out spelling mistakes in the Tweets.

Rubio also said at the campaign event that Trump had to check during the debate that “his pants were not wet.”

Trump, in his turn, mocked Rubio during a campaign event in Fort Worth, Texas, by pulling out one of his frequently used criticisms of Rubio that he sweats so much. 

Describing Rubio meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Trump said:  “He walks in and he’s drenched. I have never seen a human being sweat like this man sweats. … It looked like he had just jumped into a swimming pool with his clothes on.”

Later during the event he took out a bottle of water spraying it on stage while saying “it’s Rubio” and spraying water into the crowd.
