Marco Rubio became a subject of Twitter jokes Tuesday, after a video surfaced showing him hitting a kid in the face with a football.
The Republican senator and presidential candidate was in Iowa with his family Monday night for a state fair, playing football with his sons and some neighborhood kids during an event in Ankeny. As the gif above shows, Rubio’s pass eluded the kid’s hands and landed smack on his face, sending him to the ground.
The kid is fine though … but the failed pass has turned the politician into an object of ridicule on Twitter:
