Still Trumped off

As I write this, I'm watching a time shifted recording of Thursday night's (American time) Republican presidential candidate debate. Donald Trump repeatedly mocked one of his opponents, Senator Marco Rubio, calling him "little Marco."

Like other things Trump says, it needs to be fact checked. The truth is that Rubio, at 5'10 is only slightly shorter than Trump, who stands at 6'3. 

It reminds me of former Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke (1983-1991), who mocked then Opposition Leader John Howard as "little Johnny Howard," even though Hawke was actually shorter than Howard.
