Fiery Rubio on Trump: 'Eventually, Someone's Gonna Have to Stand Up and Punch Him Back'
Marco Rubio defended his attacks on Donald Trump this afternoon to a cheering crowd at CPAC.
The Florida senator was asked at the Conservative Political Action Conference about how he explains his choice of rhetoric on the campaign trail to his kids – in particular comments about the GOP front-runner’s “small hands” and other personal attacks.
Rubio responded that his kids send him “a daily reminder that what we are fighting for here ultimately … will decide what America looks like in 10 years.”
“I don’t want us to have a president that we constantly have to be explaining to our kids, ‘Look, I know that’s what the president did, but you shouldn’t do that,’” he said. “I don’t want that.”
“Donald Trump, he might have grown up the way he did, with a lot of money and going to boarding schools. I can tell you this,” Rubio added.
“Where I grew up, if someone keeps punching people in the face, eventually, someone’s gonna have to stand up and punch him back.”
