Trump knocks Rubio out of the news cycle
February 27, 2016
That was a strategic kill-shot, to borrow Scott Adams’s word. And it changes everything for conservatives. After a so-so debate performance and in the middle of a 16-hour verbal assault from Marco Rubio, Trump went nuclear. But not the way everyone would expect Trump to go nuclear. Trump didn’t need to invent a brilliant new put-down line to counter Marco. Instead, he calmly introduced Chris Christie to 10,000 fans in Texas.
