As if Marco Rubio’s primary loss in his home state of Florida was not humiliating enough, the senator’s Republican rival Donald Trump posted a video tweet that just added salt to his wounds.
Trump turned Rubio’s own words into an endorsement for his campaign.
“I believe with all my heart that the winner of the Florida primary next Tuesday will be the nominee for the Republican party,” Rubio had said in the clip. The video continued with a shot of CNN projecting Trump as the winner in Florida, followed by a hearty “Thanks Marco We Agree” at the end.

Trump’s post set off a social media celebration with countless memes and commentary on the Florida senator who has since suspended his campaign.

Little Marco once had a big dream that he could be US President. He’s awake now though. Go cry Marco and remember to rehydrate. #bygone
