"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." 

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.
