Donald Trump sent Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) a “care package” Monday that contained a thirst-quenching, 24-bottle case of “Trump Ice Natural Spring Water,” mocking his rival for notoriously having a dry mouth and constantly sweating.
“Since you’re always sweating, we thought you could use some water,” the Trump campaign reportedly wrote in a letter to Rubio’s staff. “Enjoy!”
The Trump camp also mailed Rubio several bumper stickers boasting Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan, and two towels, CNN reported.
The outspoken billionaire has repeatedly taunted Rubio for his GOP State of the Union response in 2013 when the Florida Senator made headlines for grabbing a water bottle and awkwardly gulping it on the air.
Rubio poked fun at himself during the most recent GOP presidential debate by pointing out that he had water bottles with him. It was after that debate that Trump started commenting that Rubio was sweaty.
“I’ve never seen a young guy sweat that much,” Trump said while speaking in South Carolina last week. “He’s drinking water, water, water. I never saw anything like this with him with the water.
“I’ve never seen a guy down water like he downs water, they bring it in in buckets for this guy,” Trumps said on MSNBC the next morning.
Trump distributes his brand of bottled water at his multiple properties around the world.
“Water for the body and soul,” Trump’s water bottles are reportedly labeled. “This is water the way it was meant to be.”
Monday’s prank is an escalation of the increasingly bitter feud between Rubio and the GOP front-runner.
Trump has criticized the Florida lawmaker as being too young and immature for the White House, and has slammed his voting record.
“He’s got the worst voting record in the United States Senate,” Trump said of Rubio last month on CNN. “He’s never there, meaning he doesn’t work or he’s too lazy to go back and vote.”
“He shouldn’t even be running in this race, as far as I’m concerned,” Trump added. “He’s a kid.”
Rubio argues that Trump is too insecure and thin skinned to be president and says he wants no part of Trump’s “freak show” on the 2016 campaign trail.
