For a while, it seemed the former Florida House speaker and U.S. senator would become president. All you had to do was look at that handsome face and hear that clever talk, and you knew where the West Miami native would be January 20, 2017. But then Marco Rubio stooped to playing Donald Trump's game, insulting, sliming, and giggling about the business magnate's "tiny, tiny hands." Next came various stories about his less-than-savory connections back in his hometown. Oh, and his sketchy personal finances were laid bare in the national press. One headline, though, from Slate, said it all about why GOP voters ultimately rejected the guy who was supposed to be the first Tea Party-approved president: "Former Florida Allies Assert on the Record That Rubio Is a Lazy, Devious Little Twerp." Just so it's clear: Miami New Times still loves you, Marquito!
