GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio is mad and he’s not going to take it anymore. What he cannot take anymore is Donald Trump. In basically a declaration of war against the New York business mogul, Rubio predicted Saturday the news media will be “like the hounds of hell” if Trump gets the Republican nomination.
After enduring vicious personal attacks from Trump in Thursday night’s debate, the hour of getting tough on the flamboyant businessman has arrived, and none too soon according to many political pundits. Rubio predicts that the mainstream media is lying in wait for Trump to capture the nomination and will proceed to dismantle him one piece at a time in this election 2016.
The senator from Florida told reporters at a press conference in Kennesaw, Georgia, before his afternoon election rally, “You guys are sharpening your knives. As soon as he’s the nominee, they’re going to be descending on him like the hounds of hell and they’re going to tear him apart for all the horrible things he’s done in his business career.” Rubio proceeded to label Trump “a con man.” The obviously rejuvenated junior senator vowed that the media won’t be alone in examining Trump’s record.
Rubio predicts the American people will soon catch on to the fact that much of what Trump says about himself is blatantly untrue. He went on to say, “When this process is finished Donald Trump will not have the 1,237 delegates he needs to win.”
The deluge of negative comments didn’t end there. As Rubio described it, Trump is “not as rich as he says he is. This a guy who inherited millions of dollars from his father, had he put that money in an index stock market fund he would one of the richest person in the world. He would have had had more money than Warren Buffett. Its part of the fraud he perpetuates.”
Rubio further ramped up his audience by saying that Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, or retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson need not drop out of the race to clear the way for him to defeat Trump. In his words, “The majority of Republican voters do not want Donald Trump to be the nominee. They’re going to support whoever is left standing that’s fighting against him to ensure that we do not nominate a con artist to be the nominee of the Republican Party in this very important election fight.”
