Marco Rubio Claims Donald Trump Had "Meltdown" Backstage During GOP Debate
"Then, he asked for a full-length mirror ... maybe to make sure his pants weren't wet, I don't know," the Florida senator said.
There is little doubt at this point that GOP presidential candidates Donald Trump and Marco Rubio disdain each other.
The morning after a highly contentious debate on Thursday, the two men continued to take swings at one another, both accusing the other of having a "meltdown" either on stage or behind the scenes.
In a series of tweets, the billionaire businessman said the Florida senator was a "choke artist" and in a since deleted tweet, a "little boy."
Why would the people of Florida vote for Marco Rubio when he defrauded them by agreeing to represent them as their Senator and then quit!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 26, 2016
Lightweight Marco Rubio was working hard last night. The problem is, he is a choker, and once a choker, always a choker! Mr. Meltdown.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 26, 2016
Rubio fired back at Trump, reading some of the former Apprentice host's tweets — which had misspellings — during a rally.
"Let me tell you something, last night, during two of the breaks he went backstage, he was having a meltdown," Rubio said. "First he had this little make up things applying make up around his mustache because he had one of those sweat mustaches. Then, he asked for a full-length mirror ... maybe to make sure his pants weren't wet, I don't know."
A request for response from Trump's campaign was not immediately returned.
