Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) has taken to insulting Republican presidential rival Donald Trump more in sorrow than in anger, he told a rally of about 3,000 supporters in northern Virginia on Sunday. "I had hoped that this would be a campaign only about ideas," Rubio said, before trying out a few new taunts about Trump's skin color, honesty, and, um, hand size. Here are a list of some of the new zingers Rubio unveiled on Sunday:

  • "Friends do not let friends vote for con artists."
  • "He doesn't sweat because his pores are clogged with the spray tan he uses. Donald is not going to make American great again; he's going to make America orange."
  • "He's always calling me little Marco. And I'll admit, he's taller than me. He's, like, 6'2" — which is why I don't understand why his hands are the size of a guy that's 5'2". I just see his hands — they're like this. And you know what they say about men with small hands... you can't trust them!"
  • "There is a lunatic in North Korea with nuclear weapons. And some would say a lunatic trying to get ahold of nuclear weapons in America."
  • "We have the Chinese government taking over the South China Sea, building up their military, stealing our inventions, and making Donald Trump's ties. And hats."
