Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio loaded both barrels on the Monday before the biggest day of the primary campaign. Leading into Super Tuesday, or the day when a huge chunk of GOP primary voters and delegates would choose a candidate to support, the two closest competitors to Donald Trump made their case while also attacking the frontrunner.
In Roanoke, Virginia Senator [score]Marco Rubio[/score] (R-FL) responded to recent attacks on his… sweating, from Donald Trump.
“He doesn’t sweat because his pores are clogged with the spray tan he uses,” Rubio chided.
“Donald is not going to make American great again; he’s going to make America orange. The other thing he says is he’s always calling me little Marco. And I’ll admit, he’s taller than me. He’s like 6’2″, which is why I don’t understand why his hands are the size of a guy that’s 5’2″. I just see his hands — they’re like this (motions). And you know what they say about men with small hands — you can’t trust them!” Rubio joked.
That’s some funny stuff right there, folks.
It wasn’t just Senator Rubio laying into Trump, though. Senator [score]Ted Cruz[/score] (R-TX) was also throwing fuel onto the fire in an effort to bring down the frontrunner. Cruz’s comments were far more serious and have much more serious implications for the campaign, however.
In a conversation with NBC’s Chuck Todd, Cruz wondered if Trump’s fear of releasing his tax returns had something to do with the way those returns might tie him to New York’s criminal elements. When Todd skeptically wondered where Cruz could get such an idea… Cruz used the major network’s own reporting to support his case.
ABC, CNN, multiple news reports have reported about his some dealings with, for example, S&A Construction, which was owned by “Fat Tony” Salerno, who is a mobster who is in jail. It is owned by two of the major New York crime families. And that has been reported in multiple media outlets. You know, you’re going to have Donald on the show later today, you ought to ask him, “Donald, have you written a check to Planned Parenthood? If so, how much and when?”
I mean, that’s the question that Donald ought to answer. We don’t know what it is that he’s hiding in those tax returns. But I can promise you this, if he’s the nominee come September, October, every day on the news will be about those tax returns, about whatever the bombshell is. And Republican primary voters deserve to know before the nomination, not after. Because you better believe Hillary Clinton and the media are going to go to town on it. And the primary voters should be able to vet all of us.
Things just got real, folks.
