In case you haven’t yet heard the news, Marco Rubio has apparently decided to put aside his many issues with Trump in order to keep Hillary from winning in November:
"I want to be helpful." —@MarcoRubio on @realDonaldTrump https://t.co/Zg8Evt9apa @cgdeaton pic.twitter.com/joAhr4k417

More from The Weekly Standard:
Marco Rubio says in an interview set to air Sunday that he wants to be “helpful” to presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, reasoning that he wants to stop Hillary Clinton from taking the White House.
“I want to be helpful. I don’t want to be harmful, because I don’t want Hillary Clinton to be president,” Rubio tells CNN’s Jake Tapper. “Look, my policy differences with Donald Trump, I spent 11 months talking about them. I think they’re well understood. That said, I don’t want Hillary Clinton to be president. If there’s something I can do to [prevent] that from happening and that’s helpful to the cause, I’d most certainly be honored to be considered for that.”
That includes speaking on Trump’s behalf at the July Republican convention, if asked, and releasing his delegates.
Now that Rubio is backing off of his anti-Trump stance, he’s opened himself up to criticism from his erstwhile supporters — and from political opponents who were waiting for the perfect time to strike. Like, for example, Hillary Clinton (or, more accurately, whoever’s running her Twitter account):

The tweet in question? This one:
America’s POWs deserve much better than to have their service questioned by the offensive rantings of Donald Trump

@NoahCRothman @HillaryClinton Troll level: epic

Hillary’s certainly no saint, and indeed, she has more than a little in common with Trump, not to mention plenty — and we mean plenty — of baggage herself. But a solid troll is a solid troll.
The moral of this story? The internet never forgets, no matter who you are.
Rubio's feed is like a goldmine of RT potential until he goes on deleting spree https://t.co/7FcAJmoo9W
