"Nappy time!": Donald Trump retweets offensive attack ad on "little RUBE" Marco Rubio

The proudly and profoundly unfiltered Trump will spin this as being "presidential" somehow

On Sunday, Donald Trump re-tweeted an attack ad on "little 'RUBE'" Marco Rubio that was, to put it mildly, in bad taste:

"NEVER HIRE A BOY TO DO A MAN'S JOB" is the title, which floats above an image of an angelic-looking young child who is, presumably, Marco Rubio.

He "seems like a nice boy," the ad claims. "Well mannered but bought and paid for" by establishment Republican interests who "taught him all that fancy government stuff. 'RINO RUBE' repeats it well! Good boy!"

Supporting the infantalizing of one of his opponents might seem unpresidential, but this is Donald Trump, and he's proudly and profoundly unfiltered.

So it's not surprising he'd approve of an ad in which his opponent is told to "drink your milk and eat your cookies," because it's "Nappy time!"
