On Monday, real-estate magnate Donald Trump returned to taunting Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) for allegedly perspiring too much. "Marco Rubio, who stood with me — he was with me when he had the meltdown. And I'm telling you it wasn't a pretty sight," Trump recalled at a campaign rally in Greenville, South Carolina. Trump was apparently referring to the Republican presidential debate earlier this month in which Rubio was pounded by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R). Rubio was widely mocked for repeating the same line and conceded last week that he "dropped the ball" at the debate. According to Trump's recollection on Monday, Rubio looked like he just got out of a swimming pool. "He was soaking wet, I'm telling you. He was wet. I say, 'What the hell is going on over here?' I thought he just came out of a swimming pool. He was soaking. I looked, I said, 'Wow.' I said, 'Are you OK?'" Trump told his supporters as they laughed.
