US presidential candidate Marco Rubio nails a kid in the face with a football (video)

If you want to become President of the United States of America you have to win hearts and minds.

So what better way to show you're just a regular, nice guy than tossing around a football with a group of kids for a photo opportunity.

What's the worst that could happen? Ask Marco Rubio, who found out the hard way on his campaign trail.

The kid went long, the would-be president sailed the ball over in a perfect arc...then 'donk', it smacked the poor youngster right in the face, sending him sprawling to the deck.

He might injure kids, but hey - at least he's not Donald Trump.


If you want to watch the moment over and over again, here's the GIF version you cruel b*stards...
