Hillary Clinton’s decision to join the party in ribbing Marco Rubio for his performance in the last Republican debate may have backfired.
Rubio has been grilled for repeating himself over and over at the GOP debate, where Chris Christie called him out for relying on the same speech. “And let’s dispel once and for all with this fiction that Barack Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing. He knows exactly what he’s doing,” Rubio said, more than once. A Twitter account was even launched called RubioGlitch as a result.
Democrat candidate Clinton joined in with a shot of her own in a post on Thursday.

The Florida senator responded by questioning Clinton’s qualifications.

@marcorubio well played, Marco, well played.

Some were not convinced and continued the Rubio glitch theme while some called on both candidates to quit the rhetoric and “do something.”
Stick a fork in Marcobot. He’s done.

For the most part, however, Twitter users enjoyed Rubio’s response.
