Trump Calls Rubio ‘Little Marco’ As GOP Debate Goes Off The Rails

It was like a runaway train and even Fox News Host Chris Wallace was having a hard time stopping it.

During a clash about Trump’s business practices, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) attacked Trump for driving a slew of his businesses into the ground.

“Ever heard of Trump steak or Trump vodka?” Rubio said. “Take a look at Trump steaks. Trump steaks is gone. You have ruined these companies.”

Trump fired that those attacks had come from Romney earlier in the day and had been short sighted.

“Mitt Romney comes up with things totally false,” Trump said. “Now the funny thing is he didn’t talk about the hundreds of really successful jobs. The buildings all over the world that have made a for did you fortune. He doesn’t talk about that. “

Wallace was trying to refocus the raucous debate back to policy.

“I have a policy question for you, sir,” Wallace said.

“Let’s see if he answers it,” Rubio chimed in before it turned into a total schoolyard war of words.

“I will. Don’t worry about it, Marco. Don’t worry about it,” Trump said to an applauding crowd. Don’t worry about it, little Marco, I will.”

“Let’s hear big Donald,” Rubio said.

“Don’t worry about it, little Marco,” Trump said.

Wallace exhausted by the exchange finally broke in.

“Gentlemen, you have got to do better than this,” Wallace said.
