Christie, in Arkansas, Rips Rubio for ‘Not Showing up for Work’

‘One message to senator Rubio, wherever you are right now, unlike the united States Senate, president of the United States is not a no-show job’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
CHRIS CHRISTIE: "Now, I'm not just making this stuff up. Let me tell you exactly what Marco Rubio has done since he's been a United States senator. Seems to me when you're a senator and you're on some committees, you should actually show up for work. Do you have to show up for work? Well, let's see what Marco Rubio did. He says he's got great foreign policy experience because he served on the foreign relations committee. Now, he has missed, during his time in the Senate, 60% of all the meetings of the foreign relations committee. Hey, Marco, show up for work for the American people. Marco Rubio says that he's going to help create jobs. The only person in this race that's created jobs is the guy standing right there, Donald Trump. How about this, Marco Rubio says he's going to create jobs, and he's on the small business committee in the Senate, and he's missed 85% of the meetings as senator. He's on the commerce committee to create economic activity. He's missed 80% of the meetings of the commerce committee. Since he's been in the Senate, he's missed 68% of all of the committee meetings he's been assigned to. Let me say something clearer, this guy shows up for work every day. He works hard. He's built incredibly successful businesses. And let me tell you, one message to senator Rubio, wherever you are right now, unlike the united States Senate, president of the United States is not a no-show job--"
