Marco Rubio is one of about 90 candidates vying for that coveted 2016 Republican nomination for President, and on Tuesday he was in Iowa tossin’ the pigskin around.

On this particular play, Rubio delivers a nice little ball on a crossing route (questionable form, but we’ll cut him some slack). Unfortunately, despite all sorts of open space in which to run after the catch, Rubio’s receiver botches the play:

WHAT ARE YOU DOING!? THE PASS WAS RIGHT THERE!

Not only does the receiver fail to catch the ball, but to add insult to injury, he lets it smack him right in the chops before eating dirt. Marco Rubio may never win The Big One, but a quarterback can’t do it all himself, you know.
