Ouch. Senator Marco Rubio made a few big statements on Monday as he tried to earn new voters heading into the “Super Tuesday” SEC primary. Rubio was in Atlanta with South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley (R-SCI), speaking to potential voters at a campaign rally at the InterContinental Hotel when he compared Donald Trump to the guy that a girl might marry when she’s looking to upset her father. The Florida Senator then warned those listening that a potential Trump candidacy would likely have the opposite effect of what his supporters were intending as he pleaded with them to come to their senses.
“This is like someone who marries their parents hate just to get back at their parents, and I said, yeah, but the difference is, you get married to this guy, you can’t get divorced for four years. You got live with him for four years,” Rubio remarked.
“I don’t know if America has four more years. Not the direction we’re headed now. And if we lose this election, and we will if Donald Trump is the nominee, then Hillary Clinton will be the next president of the United States. I say this to you, without any hesitation, and without any glee, a vote for Donald Trump tomorrow is a vote for Hillary Clinton in November.“
Rubio then reminded Trump voters that it’s “not too late” to “choose a different direction.”
“I’m here today to give you a choice. Because it’s still not too late. It’s still not too late to get this right. It’s still not too late to wake up and realize the direction we’re headed as a party and as a country. It’s still not too late. To choose a different direction,” Rubio argued.
