Trump Mocks Jeb, Rubio on Their Home Turf in Florida
No one is immune from Donald Trump’s criticism. The billionaire’s latest targets are Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio.
Speaking in Florida, he attacked the two Republican presidential candidates on their home turf.
“Bush has no money, he’s meeting today with mommy and daddy, and they’re working on his campaign,” Trump said at the rally in downtown Jacksonville, Fla.
“He’s a guy wants to run our country and he can’t even run his own campaign. Think of it,” he added.
Trump bragged about his ability to finance his own campaign.
“You have all these people, what do you need these people for?” he said. “I put up less money than everyone else, and I’m number one.”
He also laughed at the Bush-Rubio drama.
“[Rubio] was very disloyal to Bush. Everybody admits that Bush was his mentor,” he said. “They’re fighting like crazy. I’m laughing watching them fight.”
The Hill reports:
“And he needs a lot of water on top of everything else,” Trump said, in a reference Rubio’s 2012 State of the Union Republican response speech where he notably took a drink of water in the middle of his speech.
“Have you ever seen a guy sweat like Rubio?” Trump asked. He also derided Carson, who in some Iowa polls is leading Trump, as “super low on energy.”
“He’s even lower-energy than Bush,” he said.
Trump also took an indirect shot at Carson for his religion.
“I’m Presbyterian. That’s down the middle of road,” he said. “I mean, Seventh-day Adventist I don’t know about.”
Carson is a Seventh-day Adventist, a Protestant denomination that believes in a literal reading of the Bible.
