For a change, it was Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) hammering another GOP candidate on Thursday for sticking to a script when he attacked Donald Trump for repeating himself.
“He says five things: everyone’s dumb, he’s going to make america great again, win win win,” Rubio said.
The confrontation started during an exchange regarding health care policy plans.
“You’ll have competition. You’ll have so many plans,” Trump said.
“Now he’s repeating himself,” Rubio responded, drawing an extended cheer from the audience during the debate in Houston.
“I don’t repeat myself,” Trump said after a few seconds, before pointing at the senator and saying, “He repeats himself. Here’s the guy who repeats himself.”
“You repeat yourself every day,” Rubio shot back while the crowd continued to cheer.
Trump then noted that Rubio was visibly uncomfortable when New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie accused him of repeating himself during a prior debate.
“I watched him repeat himself five times four weeks ago,” Trump said.
“I saw you repeat yourself five times five seconds ago,” Rubio countered.
Watch the exchange, as posted online, below.

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’
Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.
To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.
Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."
