When GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio isn’t slinging out ideas on how to fix America, he’s chucking the pigskin around with family and friends.
One of those impromptu football sessions turned into gold on Monday. While Rubio and other candidates were making rounds in Iowa, the Florida senator unintentionally drilled some poor, uncoordinated kid in the face with a football.

Rubio, in Iowa with his family for the state fair, was throwing the pigskin with his sons and some neighborhood kids at an event in an Ankeny subdivision.
The pass, it should be said, was a fairly clean spiral from Rubio. However, it just missed the boy’s hands and then collided with his face.
The kid, the Rubio campaign said, was fine.
Rubio drops back to pass. He’s got a receiver wide open downfield! He throws and…POW! RIGHT IN THE KISSER!
You can bet that kid will think twice before bringing his weak shit into Rubio’s kitchen again.
As a fellow TFM writer put it: “Asserting dominance over future generations is a power move, and that’s what my kind of leader does.”
Peyton Manning has clearly bought into this philosophy:
Rubio was actually a star athlete coming out of high school, accepting a football scholarship to Tarkio College in Missouri for a year. Never heard of it — but whatever..
