Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has turned his fire on the fast-rising Sen. Marco Rubio–and now, he’s sent him a special delivery: a case of “Trump Ice Natural Spring Water,” with Trump’s face on the labels.
The “care package” also included a personal note from Trump to Rubio: “Since you’re always sweating, we thought you could use some water. Enjoy!”
The package also included two towels emblazoned with Trump’s slogan, “Make America Great Again”–apparently, to help with Rubio’s alleged sweating problem that Trump has made one of his favorite attacks on the Florida Senator.
Trump had previously poked fun at Rubio for his sweating when he was talking about the heat from the stage lights at the second Republican debate in September.
“Marco Rubio, I’ve never seen anybody sweat like that and you know a lot of these guys are serious sweaters, frankly but it was extremely hot in the room and extremely uncomfortable,” Trump had said.
(The head of the RNC’s debate later admitted that the air-conditioning wasn’t adequate for the size of the event and the orientation of the stage, which was elevated above the .)
And last week, Trump told a crowd about Rubio, “I’ve never seen a young guy sweat that much. He’s drinking water, water, water. I never saw anything like this with him with the water.”
Rubio responded to the previous criticism by calling Trump a “very touchy and insecure guy.”
Trump, who remains on top of the polls but has seen his strong lead narrow a bit in recent weeks, hasn’t been afraid to attack up-and-coming rivals–and his latest attacks on Rubio are no different.
Rubio has not yet commented publicly on the “gift.” But Trump’s team explained that the care package was merely meant as a lighthearted joke.
