Fans of Marco Rubio seeing the video of him hitting a child with a football just knew he’d somehow be able to turn things around by the end of the day. When the media went crazy after he took a sip of water during his Republican response to President Obama’s State of the Union address, it wasn’t long before the Rubio campaign store raised more than $100,000 selling official Marco Rubio water bottles.
And just a couple of days after that, Rubio was photographed sharing a toast with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — with water bottles.
Not willing to let the opportunity pass them by, the Rubio campaign wasted no time today getting football-themed T-shirts into the campaign store.
Of course. And don’t forget the Marco polo shirt.
Campaign swag aside, Rubio also had just the right response to ESPN’s tweet.
