Marco Rubio is 'not entirely proud' of bringing up the size of Donald Trump's hands, other zingers

Marco Rubio admitted on Wednesday he's "not entirely proud" of the personal attacks he's leveled against Donald Trump, which ultimately led to the Republican frontrunner talking about the size of certain parts of his anatomy on live television.

"My kids were embarrassed by it, and if I had to do it again, I wouldn't," Rubio said during a town hall hosted by MSNBC. In the week before Super Tuesday, Rubio went into attack mode, going after Trump's hair, his tan (quipping that Trump will "make America orange again"), and the size of his hands and their correlation with the size of something else. During last week's Fox News debate, Trump assured the electorate shuddering at home that "there's no problem" in that department.

All of the talk was for naught; while Rubio did get attention for his remarks, it didn't help him at the polls. He announced at the town hall that if he doesn't get the nomination, he has no interest in being anyone's running mate, and would "absolutely" say no to Trump if asked to join his ticket.
