Rubio Going Nuclear Against Trump

Marco Rubio is in all-out assault mode against Donald Trump.

First, Rubio suggested that Trump peed in his pants last night during the debate. But Rubio's assault didn't stop there.

WaPo reports:
Hours after mounting the fiercest assault of his campaign against Donald Trump in Thursday’s debate, Marco Rubio established a new line of attack against the Republican front-runner, branding him a “con artist” and hurling insult after insult at him during a Friday morning rally in Dallas.

Rubio mocked Trump’s misspelled tweets. He jabbed at Trump’s age. And he portrayed Trump as a scared and phony politician...

In essence, Rubio is trying to beat Trump at his own game, lobbing memorable one-liners designed to attract widespread attention. He is also going after Trump’s business background, a cornerstone of his pitch to voters.

In Dallas, Rubio gleefully pulled out his smartphone and read aloud some of Trump’s misspelled attack tweets. He said he could draw only two conclusions about why Trump messed them up.

“Number one: That’s how they spell those words at the Wharton School of Business, where he went. Or number two, just like Trump Tower, he must have hired a foreign worker to do his own tweets,” quipped Rubio.

Rubio, 44, also highlighted the age gap between him and Trump, 69.

“He would be the oldest president ever elected. And it’s like an eight-year term, so you start to worry,” said Rubio...he questioned Trump’s toughness by charging that he was “the first guy that begged for Secret Service protection.”
