Marco Rubio May Lose the Kid Vote after Hitting a Boy with Football

As all the Republican candidates descended on Iowa, there was a mad dash to make their visit stand out. Donald Trump took kids on helicopter rides and told them he is Batman, former HP CEO Carly Fiorina made a speech on crony capitalism, and Florida Senator Marco Rubio played a little pigskin with a junior supporter.

Too bad Rubio’s hook became a flop when he pegged this kid in the face with a football.

Can we get a second look?


Hmm… it’s still hard to tell if it’s Rubio’s throw or the kid’s catching skills are to blame, but that definitely wasn’t a tight spiral.

Twitter users offered their own analysis of the play.


Too soon, bro. Too soon.

Both Rubio and the kid felt this pass the next morning. Better luck next time.
