Today Donald Trump angered conservative activists attending the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit.
Describing his recent dust-up with Senator Marco Rubio (R., Fla.), Trump said, “You have this clown Marco Rubio” — at which point boos roared from the crowd.
Trump pressed forward with his attack, saying he’s only ever been “nice” to Rubio.
Yesterday Trump said of Rubio:
I’m looking at guys like Marco Rubio who has the worst voting record in the United States Senate. Young guy although he sweats more than any young person I’ve seen in my life. (Laughter) I’ve never seen a person sweat — I have never seen a guy down water like he downs water. They bring it in in buckets for this guy. But, you know, I have various people that I have to knock down before I get to the other race. When I get to the other race, I will win that race.
Earlier in the interview he called him a “boy” who shouldn’t even be in the race.
