Marco Rubio took aim at Donald Trump’s manhood during a rally Friday morning, portraying the GOP front-runner as a coward and suggesting he may have wet himself during Thursday night’s presidential debate.

“He called me Mr. Meltdown. Let me tell you something, last night during two of the debates, he went backstage, he was having a meltdown,” Rubio said in Dallas.

“First, he had this little makeup thing applying makeup around his mustache because he had one of those sweat mustaches. Then, he he asked for a full length mirror … maybe to make sure his pants weren’t wet.”
The line came as Rubio took out his cellphone and began to read Trump’s tweets from stage. Noting that some had misspellings, he cracked that the billionaire businessman “must have hired a foreign worker to do his own tweets.”

He chided Trump for trying to portray himself as a “tough guy” and said voters shouldn’t be fooled.

“This is a con-job where he is going to Americans who are struggling, Americans who are hurting, and he’s implying, ‘I’m fighting for you’ because he’s a tough guy. A tough guy? This guy inherited $200 million, he’s never faced any struggle,” Rubio said.

I will freely admit that I’m enjoying the fact that both Rubio and Cruz have become aware of all the things the non-Trump crowd have been saying for months now and have decided to talk about them. I fear that it is far too little too late but, as of this morning, I have decided to hold out a sliver of hope.

Obviously, the Trump supporters are entrenched, and there’s no reason to expect much movement there. The rest of the Republican electorate may very well become a bit more mobile as the specter of a Trump candidacy looms larger, however.
