Donald Trump Jr. said Sen. [crscore]Marco Rubio[/crscore]’s attacks on his father are “sad” and “ridiculous.”
In an interview on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” with Ainsley Earhardt, on Monday, Trump’s other son Eric said, Rubio, as well as Sen. [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] are “drowning” so their strategy is to bring Donald Trump “down with them.” (RELATED: Rubio Goes Nuclear On Trump By Attacking The Size Of His Hands)
Yesterday, during a rally in Virginia, Rubio took shots at Trump suggesting his “always calling me little Marco. And I’ll admit he’s taller than me. He’s like 6’2″. Which is why I don’t understand why his hands are the size of someone who’s 5’2. Have you seen his hands? They’re like this. And you know what they say about men with small hands. … He doesn’t sweat. He doesn’t sweat because his pores are clogged from the spray tan that he uses. … Donald is not going to make America great. He’s going to make America orange.”
Asked to react, Eric Trump said, “It’s kind of a little bit sad. I mean, both these candidates [Cruz and Rubio], both kind of opponents at this point, they’re drowning, they’re not doing very well, and you know so what are they doing? They’re kind of bringing [Trump] down with them.”
“And it’s sad to see, we love our father. He’s an amazing guy,” Eric said. Trump “would do such an unbelievable job for this country. He’s an amazing business man. He’s an amazing negotiator. He’s self-funding himself. I mean all these guys you know, including Rubio, are being funded by super PACs, and you know, it’s just very, very sad to see that kind of dialogue.”
Earhardt then asked Trump Jr. his reaction to Rubio’s rhetoric and he said, “I think it’s gotten ridiculous. Again, I think it’s a desperate move, right. It’s one thing if you have an aggressive personality and you’ve been known to have that for your entire life like my father, right. It’s another when, oh, we pretend to do this and you know my puppet masters will tell me what to say so that I can try to win some points. I think people will see through it. I don’t think it comes across as genuine. And again, it’s a desperate move.”
“You can’t be Mr. Nice Guy, Mr. Nice Guy and then all of a sudden I’m Mr. Attack Guy because someone calls you weak and says you’re not a tough guy,” Trump Jr. said. “It doesn’t play well in my opinion. But again, I am my father’s son so I’m going to support him. But it is sad to see that this is where politics has gone. Right, when you don’t have a real record to talk about. Rick Santorum, who comes out, I’m for Rubio, he’s great. What are his accomplishments? Oh, I don’t know. He hasn’t done anything.”
Rubio is a “half-term senator. We talk about Barack Obama that way. Oh, he had no experience and never did anything. Cruz and Rubio, same thing. It’s sort of amazing. And I’m a conservative saying this,” Trump Jr. said.
