Rubio on Irma: 'Don't be the guy' killed by tree. Stay home, watch 'Games of Throne'

When U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio spoke to reporters at a storm briefing Saturday morning, he had a message: Don't let Hurricane Irma's western track cause you to let your guard down in Miami.

And the Miami Republican inadvertently shared a revelation, too: He's not a big "GoT" fan.

"Don't be the guy or the gal who gets killed by a tree," Rubio said in winding up to his remain-in-place advice. "It's a great time to get home, and catch up on 'Games of Throne.' Or whatever it's called."

Um, actually, it's "Game of Thrones."

"Yeah," Rubio said to chuckles from reporters, "I don't watch that myself."
