WASHINGTON, Oct. 6 (UPI) — Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump pranked GOP rival Marco Rubio with a case of water and a towel Tuesday after chiding Rubio’s voting record and abundant perspiration.
Trump’s campaign called the delivery of Trump Ice Natural Spring Water a lighthearted jab at his rival. The delivery to Rubio’s Washington campaign office included a 24-bottle case of water with a picture of Trump, two “Make America Great Again” towels and bumper stickers and a note reading, “Since you’re always sweating, we thought you could use some water. Enjoy!”
The special delivery is a jab at Rubio who gulped down a bottle of water in the middle of his 2013 State of the Union rebuttal to President Barack Obama. More recently, Trump took a jab at Rubio’s voting record and teased Rubio for being too sweaty.
“Rubio, I’ve never seen a young guy sweat that much,” Trump said during an appearance in South Carolina. “He’s drinking water, water, water, I never saw anything like this with him with the water.”
Rubio brushed off the antics, saying he never saw the case of water.
“I heard it’s very high-quality water. Apparently, Evian are a bunch of losers,” the Florida senator said during an interview with Fox and Friends. “It is what it is. Yeah, I drink water. So what?”
