Rubio Gets Personal in Fight with Cruz: You Don’t Speak Spanish!

cruz rubioThings got a little personal when Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz fought over immigration at tonight’s Republican debate.

Cruz went on the offense on Rubio’s immigration weaknesses, bringing up how during a Univision interview in Spanish, Rubio “said he wouldn’t rescind Obama’s illegal executive amnesty on his first day in office.”

Rubio shot back, “First of all, I don’t know how he knows what I said on Univision ’cause he doesn’t speak Spanish.”

The audience wend wild and Cruz responded by actually speaking to Rubio in Spanish.

Rubio went on to say “Ted Cruz has just been telling lies” on all sorts of things.
