Rubio: If Trump's Our Nominee, GOP Will Be 'Defined By' Violence

..but he will still support him if he's their nominee.

Rubio had another strange presser this morning, where he warned what would happen if Trump is nominated, but says he still intends to support him if he's the Republican nominee.

Marco Rubio spoke out against Donald Trump and the violence at his rallies in forceful terms Saturday morning, warning that "this is what the Republican Party's going to be defined by" if he's the nominee.

"Presidents cannot say whatever's on their minds," he told a small crowd during a Tampa Bay-area rally. "You don't say it because it's wrong to do it — every society must be governed by rules of discourse. Once you lose the rules of discourse, you lose the discourse."

"If he's our nominee, this is what the Republican party's going to be defined by. This is what it's going to mean to be a conservative," Rubio cautioned.

Rubio's comments follow a night of unrest in Chicago after protesters caused enough chaos at a Trump rally planned at the University of Illinois-Chicago that Trump decided to cancel the event. The rally disbanded onto the streets of the Windy City, where protesters and supporters clashed with police.

Rubio's full remarks are a case study in psychosis.
