Rubio hits kid in head with a football, provides ALL DAY entertainment

Tuesday was a slow news day in the 2016 Republican presidential primary race. Just ask Marco Rubio.

A video of the presidential contender and avid football fan tossing a wobbly pass to a Des Moines, Iowa, boy went viral after the ball hit the tyke in the face when he failed to make the catch — the boy was fine.

Bloomberg Politics posted the video on social media:

Rubio showed his sense of humor when he responded to an ESPN post on the incident, saying what any football fan knows to be true:

Here’s Kristol’s post and a few other responses from Twitter:
