In an NPR interview aired Monday, Marco Rubio was asked to respond to Donald Trump calling him “a clown” at the Values Voter Summit in Washington on Friday.

“I’m not interested in the back and forth — to be a member or a part of his freak show. I would just say this: He is a very sensitive person; he doesn’t like to be criticized. He responds to criticism very poorly. His numbers have taken a beating and he was embarrassed on national television at the debate by Carly Fiorina and others. ”

— Sen. Marco Rubio
