Trump surrogate Boris Epshteyn was apparently unimpressed with Al Gore's Florida rally appearance with Hillary Clinton today, and made no bones about it.

While trying to explain to Jake Tapper why Trump "unshackled" was going to be so much, much better than Trump "in chains," Epshteyn took a swipe at Clinton, Florida, Gore, mosquitoes, and Zika.

"[The race] will be even clearer between [Trump] as the ultimate outsider and Hillary Clinton, the ultimate insider," he argued. "Today, having the rally with Al Gore. I felt pretty bad for her sitting there. Sounded pretty boring talking about mosquitoes' metabolism and all that stuff."

Tapper retorted, "The mosquitos carry the deadly Zika virus so probably the people in Florida were paying attention."

Ya think?

Right now, there are 993 reported cases of Zika in Florida. So to them, it's not boring. Not boring at all.
