Rubio said it on Wednesday in New Hampshire and then again on Thursday morning when he was asked about Trump on the radio.

"Every time he sees something in the — he follows the news very closely, he’s obsessed with the news and anything they say about him," Rubio told host Jack Heath. "So anytime he reads something or something happens, like a poll is not as good as he wants it to be, he gets really weird and he does and says weird and strange things."

The Florida senator then added that he would "continue to focus on the future of America" and wouldn't "change who I am or why I'm running because of someone else."
