Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio laughed off a supporter’s suggestion that he ‘‘waterboard’’ Democrat Hillary Clinton.
The suggestion came just after the Florida senator promised to keep the US base at Guantanamo Bay open ‘‘forever.’’
A supporter at a Tuesday evening rally in North Myrtle Beach shouted, ‘‘Waterboard Hillary,’’ referring to the interrogation technique that has long been considered torture.
Rubio laughed, noting, ‘‘The press is here.’’ He smiled and added: ‘‘I didn’t hear what they said. I know it wasn’t a bad word.’’
