Rubio turns Trump’s ‘clown’ comment back around on him

Unlike some other Republican presidential candidates, Marco Rubio has increased his polling numbers despite engaging in some direct verbal battles with front-runner Donald Trump.

Currently tied for third with Carly Fiorina, Rubio has long been critical of Trump’s demeanor on the campaign trail. Back-and-forth between the two candidates made headlines again last week when an audience booed Trump for referring to Rubio as a clown.

The Florida senator responded by calling Trump’s campaign a “freak show,” adding that he has no desire to be a part of it.

Rubio went on to describe Trump as thin-skinned and uninterested in tackling legitimate issues. He concluded:

My sense of it is that every time issues become prominent, he will say something outrageous or do something outrageous so that he doesn’t have to talk about the issues.
